Jurassic Park 4 finds its director

Colin Trevorrow will fill the hot seat

Jurassic Park 4 has taken a significant step forward with the appointment of a new director in the form of Safety Not Guaranteed helmer Colin Trevorrow.

Trevorrow had recently been mentioned as a dark horse to take up the reins on Star Wars: Episode VII, but it seems that he’ll be coming aboard another mega-franchise instead.

Producer Frank Marshall took to Twitter to give his take on the news, tweeting, “Thrilled to have director on JP4, Colin Trevorrow, an exciting young filmmaker who understands and respects the world that is Jurassic Park.”

The announcement was broken in an official press release, which also confirmed that the fourth instalment of the dino-series will be filmed in 3D.

It’s a huge gig for Trevorrow, who will be working from a script written by Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes duo, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. Filming is set to begin this year, ahead of a proposed opening on 13 June 2014. Hold onto your butts…

      a lesser-known director could bring some heart back into the project. Didn't they get Joe Johnston to do part 3? so mediocre. i can't wait for JP4

      This may not be such a bad choice, but what story are they going to have for part 4, they kinda ran out of ideas after the first one ....

      This is what i hate about Hollywood nowadays. If there'd been some up-and-coming writer/director team who had come up with an idea for a JP4 (heck, even if Spielberg himself came up with one) then i could understand looking to get it made, but the fact that they have gone the other way and have picked a franchise and are trying to find someone to come up with a story for it just shows you that there is no real need for it. Its the same with the new Star Wars film. If there was a compelling story that someone had come up with that just had to be told, then fine, i see the need to make some more films. Dont' see the point in doing it this way apart from to milk the property for all its worth....(although, i'll still probably go and watch them)
