Universal Pictures has just announced that their Jurassic Park IV will hit theaters on June 13, 2014.
And, yup, that’s pretty much it. Beyond that, we only know that Steven Spielberg will produce, it will likely be in 3D, and it (may possibly?) come with a script by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. That’s right, there’s no word on plot details, who could star in it (or even what sort of roles they are looking to cast), and who will direct it.
The summer of 2014 is already shaping up to include a monster (very sequel-heavy) lineup, with May seeing the release of The Amazing Spider-Man sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, that new Godzilla, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes; June featuring both How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Transformers 4; with July set to feature both The Hobbit: There and Back Again and X-Men: Days of Future Past; and August already slated for that Guardians of the Galaxy opening. Geez, save your movie-going dollars now, people.
This has been Friday news. [Universal Pictures]
