'Jurassic Park 4' Officially Titled 'Jurassic World', Sets June 2015 Release Date

Steven Spielberg will return to produce this sequel, with Colin Trevorrow directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Derek Connolly.

Universal Pictures has announced that the official title of Jurassic Park 4 is Jurassic World. The film will be released on Friday, June 12, 2015 in 3D.

Jurassic Park 4

No story details have been announced at this time, but the plot is rumored to take place at the site of the original Jurassic Park on Isla Nublar, which has been turned into an amusement park, as first envisioned by Richard Attenborough's John Hammond. There, Dinosaur trainers run a Sea World type Isla Nublar Lagoon, which will include underwater dinosaurs for the first time in the franchise's history. The film will also include a never-before-seen dinosaur that will rival the T-Rex in terror.

Steven Spielberg will return to produce this long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series. Colin Trevorrow is directing from a draft of the screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley join the team as fellow producers.

The Jurassic World release date comes just on the heels of Disney pulling Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales off its upcoming slate, delaying it until at least the summer of 2016. The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Man of Steel 2 and Star Wars: Episode VII are all still set to be released in the summer of 2015, giving Jurassic World plenty of competition at the box office.

In May, production on Jurassic World was delayed so that Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly could rewrite the original screenplay, with Steven Spielberg giving new notes as well. The trio have turned in a draft of the screenplay that is to everybody's liking.

With the script in place, Universal will now start casting the film. Prior to the delay, Bryce Dallas Howard, David Oyelowo, John Krasinski and Garrett Hedlund were being eyed for the leads. It is expected that offers will still be made to the actors, and we will have an official casting announcements in the very near future.

Jurassic World will be shot in 3D.

Jurassic World comes to theaters June 12th, 2015 and stars Ty Simpkins, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Chris Pratt, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, B.D. Wong, Omar Sy. The film is directed by Colin Trevorrow.

    Hopfully they'll still keep the same JURASSIC PARK logo on things such as the big gate, jeeps and rail-road explorer. that's if they didnt revamp the the whole thing and putting JURASSIC WORLD. which may or may not work. i love "park" better than "world" for the park theme and "world" for the movie's name.

    The 2 lil kids should return (all grown up) as well as some if not all of the main actors from the first fiolm. well just 3 of them.
    I know the underwater aquarium will look awesome , bet it'll be in 3d too! (which does work in this kinda movie)
    I'm so looking 4ward to it.

    kinda feels like they didn't know what else to do so they slapped two words together for a fancy title

    but if it works for the degree of the film then ok

    Like the new title. Not expected. But a nice face lift on such a be-loved and well know film. Its refreshing. Can't wait to see what they do with this film. But I don't expect to know anytime soon. Haha. Can't wait to learn more.
