Universal’s decision to put Jurassic Park IV on indefinite hold a month ago came as a blessing for some fans, who would prefer it if Steven Spielberg’s dinosaur blockbuster franchise were to (…wait for it…) remain on the extinct species’ list.
Others, however, were beginning to raise their expectations and dare to hope that a return trip to Isla Nublar could prove to be almost as memorable as the first one (twenty years ago now).
JP4 director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) has begun to scout locations for the film earlier this year, and (for a while) it seemed that he could manage to start production on time to make the original June 2014 release date.
There had been early signs of trouble – such as the lack of casting announcements – so, it wasn’t a complete surprise when the story leaked that Universal had decided to postpone the film – even before the studio released an official statement that confirmed its decision.
Den of Geek is reporting that the fourth Jurassic Park installment (and the first shot in 3D) is now slated to reach theaters in 2015, most likely during the summer box office season.
Their source is described as being “solid,” and this seems like a reasonable guess on its own. After all, the movie already has a completed script written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), along with a director onboard and seasoned producers like Spielberg and Frank Marshall. The latter is taking the place of his wife, Kathleen Kennedy, while she works on Star Wars: Episode VII.
