Universal Dates ‘Jurassic Park 4’; Renames It ‘Jurassic World’

Pic will bow June 12, 2015

On the same day Disney takes “Pirates of the Caribbean 5” off its 2015 calendar, Universal has dated “Jurassic World,” the next installment in the “Jurassic Park,” franchise for June 12, 2015.

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.

With the script now turned in, the studio will now look to casting the film. Uni had been eyeing Bryce Dallas Howard, David Oyelowo and Garrett Hedlund to star when they were prepping prior to the postponement and sources say they are still favorites to get offers when those go out.
