Colin Trevorrow To Direct ‘Jurassic Park 4’
Director Colin Trevorrow will bring Jurassic Park 4 to the big screen, as shared by Entertainment Weekly. It was first thought that seasoned ‘E.T.’ director Steven Spielberg would be helming the feature, but Spielberg made it clear months ago that he wouldn’t be stepping behind the lens. Universal has since hired on the ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ director to take on the dinosaur franchise.
Instead Spielberg will executive produce the story with the help of Frank Marshall and ‘Bourne’ series producer Patrick Crowley. The follow up comes more than a decade after the Joe Johnston directed ‘Jurassic Park 3’ made its way into movie theaters. With the first installment released back in 1993, the franchise will celebrate its 20th anniversary. The studio plans to roll out a 3-D conversion of the feature that will hit theaters on April 5.
Colin Trevorrow brings with him credits that include the 2002 short ‘Home Base’, 2004’s ‘Reality Show’ and ‘Gary: Under Crisis’. The San Francisco native has also worked on the 2003 production of ‘Making Revolution’.
‘Jurassic Park 4’ will be released on June 13, 2014. Tell us what you think Jurassic fans? Are you excited to see the indie director behind the wheel? Leave us your comments below on the upcoming production of the franchise.
