Fans have been waiting for the fourth installment of Jurassic Park for quite a while now, with many accepting that it might never happen. Back in October, we reported on the alleged concept artwork that had emerged from the scrapped script, which was about as crazy as any script ever could be. Now Universal has just given fans a reason to rejoice – the studio has announced that Jurassic Park 4 will be hitting theaters on June 13, 2014.
Universal Pictures made the announcement on Twitter earlier today with a simple tweet that read: “Breaking News! Jurassic Park 4 is coming June 13, 2014! What do you hope to see in the new sequel?” According to Variety, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are writing the script. Per the tweet, and not surprisingly, the movie will be in 3D.
Steven Spielberg, who directed Jurassic Park 1 and 2, will produce the movie, but no director has been appointed as of now. It is possible, however, that he could direct the movie, as he has postponed the production of Robopocalypse, and is not locked into any other obligations at the moment. Spielberg hinted back in 2011 that a fourth installment of the series was to be made.
What will the movie be about? No one knows, besides the obvious. Hopefully it won’t be as crazy as the script that surfaced back in 2007, however, which had dog/human/dinosaur hybrids, genetic engineering, strange looking creatures, adrenaline-spiking brain implants, and secret dinosaur-altering facilities in the mountains. In the meantime, fans can see Jurassic Park in IMAX 3D when it is re-released in April.
