Jurassic Park 4 has been postponed. Universal Studios issued this statement yesterday about the much-anticipated film.
“In coordination with filmmakers, Universal has decided to release Jurassic Park 4 at a later date giving the studio and filmmakers adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal’s beloved franchise. We could not be more excited about the vision that [director] Colin Trevorrow has created for this film, and we look forward to watching as he and the producers create another great chapter in this franchise’s storied history.”
Initially, the film was expected in theaters in June 2014. The Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment production will be produced by Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley. Steven Spielberg is executive producer. The script is written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). The film series is based on the books originally written by author Michael Crichton.
