Well, it's officially happening: 'Jurassic Park 4,' titled 'Jurassic World,' is really assembling a cast, and the latest name to get attached is young actor Nick Robinson, who starred in 2013's 'The Kings of Summer.' Details on his character are scarce, but to paraphrase the great Ian Malcolm, we're sure he will be involved in plenty of running and screaming.
'Jurassic Park 4,' now titled 'Jurassic World,' is firming up its human cast for the next adventure into dino-land with director Colin Trevorrow. And what 'Jurassic Park' movie would be complete without at least one kid to rattle the adults, right? This latest franchise installment is now looking to Tony Stark's kid sidekick in 'Iron Man 3.'
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.
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?
'Jurassic Park 4' was given a summer 2014 release date by Universal a while back, but for a while no director was attached, which gave us all cause for concern. Now the wait is over, and if you were hoping for Steven Spielberg to return to helm one of his babies, you'll be disappointed because the job goes to Colin Trevorrow.
With Steven Spielberg's 'Robopocalypse' put on temporary hold, perhaps Universal saw a hole in the 2014 schedule, or perhaps they're just ready to make more dinosaur movies. We say that because -- even though there's no director attached -- Universal has announced that 'Jurassic Park 4' will be hitting theaters June 13, 2014.
