Colin Trevorrow to direct Jurassic Park 4
The director of the wonderful Safety Not Guaranteed has landed the job of making Jurassic Park 4...
Now this is an inspired choice. Speculation has been rife for some time as to the identity of the director for Jurassic Park 4, not least since it was confirmed that the movie was set for release in 2014.
Would it be Jurassic Park III helmer Joe Johnston? Nope. Steven Spielberg? Not him either.
Instead, it's Colin Trevorrow. The same Colin Trevorrow who made the brilliant, brilliant Safety Not Guaranteed. The same Colin Trevorrow who is also linked to a remake of Flight Of The Navigator.
Presumably Flight Of The Navigator will be on hold for the immediate future though, as Trevorrow will need to get down to work quickly. He's got about 15 months to finish the movie, assuming Universal doesn't shift the release date. Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes duo Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver have penned the screenplay, and the film is due in cinemas on June 13th 2014.
A fabulous choice, we feel. If you don't agree, check out Safety Not Guaranteed. It's a low budget treat. Big congratulations to Colin Trevorrow.
