Little is known about the announced 'Jurassic Park 4,' other than that it will be called 'Jurassic World,' be directed by Colin Trevorrow and will be released on June 12, 2015. Casting for the next installment is kicking off, and 'The Help' and 'Twilight' star Bryce Dallas Howard is in early talks to be the first new addition to the cast.
What you're watching is not official footage from 'Jurassic World' - producer Frank Marshall confirmed as much on Twitter - but, it's what is being described as a "pitch trailer." It was shown to an audience by concept artist Iain McCaig at 'Star Wars' Celebration Europe II this summer and has now found its way to the web. Is this our first look at what they're planning for 'Jurassic Park 4'?
The last we heard from 'Jurassic Park 4' was that Universal had scuttled the previous June, 2014 release date, reportedly for script and turnaround issues. However, those who were afraid that the project was completely sunk have a reason to be excited again: 'Jurassic Park 4' appears to be officially back on track for a 2015 release.
We all recall when, not too long ago, Universal put their upcoming Colin Trevorrow-directed 'Jurassic Park 4' on hold? Well, we might (keyword here is *might*) have a better idea as to why. Despite a past statement from the producer, rumor has it that this next installment will be a big-time reboot, but is there any truth here?
By now you've heard the news: 'Jurassic Park 4' has been put on hold by Universal Pictures so that they'll have "adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment." (Read: "Guess we shouldn't have rushed it"!) So how does this affect your opinion of the sequel?
Just as recently as last week we had fresh 'Jurassic Park 4' updates from director Colin Trevorrow who tweeted from the location scout that the upcoming sequel would return to the original Jurassic Park. But things move fast in Hollywood and just a few days later comes word that 'Jurassic Park 4' has been shut down and may not be happening at all any time soon.
