As Steven Spielberg takes Robopocalypse, his most recent attempt at sci-fi novel turned-movie, back to the drawing board, Universal have officially set a schedule for the sequel to one of his previous successes.
After any number of false starts, Jurassic Park is now set for a bow on June 13th 2014.
We don’t have much other new info, other than Deadline‘s claim that it will be shot in 3D.
Spielberg is producing but apparently won’t direct. Or, according to Variety, he might. Perhaps. We’ll see about that.
Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver were set to work on this project last summer. It would seem to be their take that has Universal feeling confident.
Jaffa and Silver last revitalised the Planet of the Apes franchise with Dawn, and seem like a very sensible choice for this project. They can do quasi-scientific stuff with character and big action beats, then wrap it all up in a nice, tidy shape.
Well, they at least did it once, anyway.
The first Park is back in cinemas, in 3D – though obviously post-converted – this April. Too soon for teaser for part 4? I should imagine so.
