The much-delayed fourth instalment in the staggeringly successful Jurassic Park series finally has a title and a release date: Jurassic World will hit cinemas on June 2015, studio Universal has revealed.Colin Trevorrow will direct with a screenplay he co-wrote with Derek Connolly.
Plot details have not been released. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are producing.
In May, Uni post-poned production on the project in order for Trevorrow and Connolly to take a pass at an original draft by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver and allow exec producer Steven Spielberg to give his notes as well.
The 2015 summer is already looking at a very competitive year with “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” a new “Batman-Superman” film and the next installment of the “Star Wars” franchise all expected to bow in 2015 and now auds can expect this film as well.
Safety Not Guaranteed director Trevorrow takes the reins from Captain America’s Joe Johnston, who directed the last instalment, Jurassic Park III, in 2001. Steven Spielberg, who directed 1993′s Jurassic Park and 1997′s The Lost World: Jurassic Park, will once again be an executive producer.
The film series based on Michael Crichton’s novels about prehistoric beasts brought back to life through gene technology is one of Hollywood’s longest-running sagas, with more than $1.9bn at the global box office thus far.
We don’t know if this movie can match up to the expectations as this era has seen a lot of movies (Godzilla, Pacific Rim). Maybe Spielberg has something big in mind. Maybe that’s why such a long delay. Lets just keep our fingers crossed and trust in Spielberg.[Picture Source:The Guardian]
