Long in development, constantly plagued by delays and setbacks, it seemed like Jurassic Park IV was never actually going to happen, but a surprising announcement yesterday said that Universal have set a release date for the film at 14th June 2014.
At first this date seems a little over optimistic, the film doesn’t even have a director yet, but maybe it’s further along than they are letting on.
A good sign is that the script has been written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who wrote ‘Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’, which turned out to be way better than I think anyone was expecting. Spielberg is set to produce, but not direct.
Both the previous sequels have their moments, but aren’t a patch on the original (which is due for a re-release this year), maybe this could be the first to come close to it?
