Jurassic Park 4 Shut Down?
There's trouble on Isla Nublar, but this time it has NOTHING to do with rampaging dinosaurs. From the sounds of things production on Jurassic Park 4 has been suspended. Read on for details.
Today Jurassic Park 4 Concept Artist Dean Sherriff tweeted, “JP on hold.” That was followed by a tweet from JP4's Digital Assets Manager Todd Smoyer, who chimed in with, “Hollywood makes and crushes dreams. Goodbye JP4.” Both tweets have since been deleted, but AICN managed to get a screencap of both before they headed into the ether. Sounds pretty grim.
Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow had been tapped to helm the next installment in the dino-rific series with Universal Pictures and Steven Spielberg setting a June 13, 2014, release date for Jurassic Park 4 3D. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver penned the script.
And now Deadline has chimed in with a statement from the studio: "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."
Look for more on this one soon!
