Jurassic Park 3D Set For Release On The Original’s 20th Anniversary

When Spielberg recently said that he’d consider converting Jurassic Park to 3D, what he really meant was that plans were already in place, wheels were already turning and deals were already being made.

The film is to get a release next summer, on the occasion of its 20th anniversary, with a US bow set for July 19th. As a result, Universal have brought forward their Tom Cruise sci-fi film Oblivion to April. Essentially, they’ve booted that one out of a prime summer slot to make space for an upconverted 3D do-over of twenty year old film – which, at the very least, speaks to their confidence in Jurassic Park.

Meanwhile, development on the fourth film in the Jurassic Park series continues. With Spielberg producing I’m not sure how likely it is, but I’d love to see them go somewhere really odd and unexpected with that one. We already have three films in a similar vein, one of them now twice over, and I don’t really think we need any more.

So… what happened to that old John Sayles script for a JP4 about half-human half-dinosaur creatures?

Incidentally, Variety‘s Jeff Sneider seemed to be the first to share the 3D re-release news.
