Early last year director Collin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) teased fans that he was in talks to helm a beloved franchise. Many fans, not this one mind you, thought that beloved franchise to be Star Wars. Well we all know who is directing that next installment. Today, Deadline and Collider are reporting that Trevorrow will be directing the next Jurassic Park film.
Producer Frank Marshall tweeted the news (@LeDoctor):
“Thrilled to have director on JP4, Colin Trevorrow, an exciting young filmmaker who understands and respects the world that is Jurassic Park.”
Jurassic Park 4 is scripted by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). Frank Marshall is producing with Patrick Crowley, and Steven Spielberg is executive producer.
The original Jurassic Park is scheduled for a 3D re-release on April 5th, 2013.
Safety Not Guaranteed is currently available on Netflix Streaming as well DVD and Blu-ray. I highly recommend checking out the film.
