Beaks here with the official word from Universal: JURASSIC PARK 4 is officially on hold. Here's the statement released by the studio this morning:
In coordination with filmmakers, Universal has decided to release Jurassic Park 4 at a later date giving the studio and filmmakers adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal’s beloved franchise. We could not be more excited about the vision that Colin Trevorrow has created for this film, and we look forward to watching as he and the producers create another great chapter in this franchise’s storied history.
So no more rushing to meet that June 2014 release date. We'll keep you posted as to when JURASSIC PARK 4 is ready to go before cameras.
Hey folks, Harry here... There's some conflicting information coming in on the long awaited JURASSIC PARK 4 which was scheduled to be released in June of 2014 is now on "HOLD". This - just 5 days after Director Colin Trevorrow sent out this image from a location scout which he tweeted as Nublar
Looking at that plate - we can only dream of the Dinos it would have had.
Today, JP4 Concept Artist Dean Sherriff tweeted this:
It was then taken down and deleted. Why? We don't know. But soon after, this tweet went out from JP4's Digital Assets Manager, Todd Smoyer:
This very much reminds me of George Miller's FURY ROAD. They had sets, vehicles, costumes.. and it all went into storage. He moved on to other projects - but eventually FURY ROAD did get shot and will happen. I hope the same can be said for JURASSIC PARK. Annette Kellerman's little boy has become dino obsessed, just last night he was over here at my house with his parents watching THE LOST WORLD - and he was playing the Jurassic Park farmville clone on his iPad. And listening to a 3 year old saying big ol dinosaur names... it gives one faith in our future. But I hope that whatever is going on with JURASSIC PARK 4, that it gets worked out and they make a great film.
It's been fun seeing the Jurassic Park fans reignited with the recent JURASSIC PARK 3D release, the films on Blu Ray and the hope of a new film on the horizon.
Don't completely throw your hopes away - let's see what shakes down from the Studio, Trevorrow and Frank Marshall... but I've got a sneaking suspicion that they can't make their 2014 window - and everyone is war planning on when to pull the trigger on this. Surely UNIVERSAL isn't throwing all that future money away.
