Universal Confirms June 2014 Release Date for 'Jurassic Park IV' 3D!

Jurassic Park IV

2014 just got a lot more prehistoric. Out of nowhere this Friday evening, Universal has confirmed a release date, and nothing else, for the long-rumored, long-delayed sequel Jurassic Park IV. We've been hearing about this one for nearly as long this site has been in existence, and most recently we expected that it was completely dead. But now official Jurassic Park pages on Facebook and Twitter are confirming the news, stating: "Just announced! Jurassic Park 4 is coming to theaters on June 13, 2014!" It looks like it's real and happening - but Steven Spielberg will only be producing it, not directing. At least according to reports.

One source seems to be THR's Borys Kit, who tweeted the initial news when it broke: "This just in: Universal Pictures will release Jurassic Park 4 in 3D on June 13, 2014." He followed that with this tidbit: "Spielberg is only producing JP4. No director on it at this time." So they have a release date, most likely a script and an idea, but no director or cast yet. We do know that there is a Jurassic Park 3D re-release, of the original movie, coming April this year. In addition to that, there was buzz that Rise of the Planet of the Apes writers Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver had been hired as of last June for a new script, but no word if this is still their take or not. We'll have to wait to see. For now, mark down June 2014 down as the return of Jurassic Park.

Update: Deadline mentions they're shooting in native 3D, and that Steven Spielberg will definitely be producing. "Spielberg is returning to produce the next installment of the franchise, the last of which came out in July 2001." It's also interesting to note that a June 2014 release puts this a few weeks from Pixar's dinosaur movie The Good Dinosaur, hitting theaters May 30th. We'll keep you updated on any JP4 news.

    Jurassic Park is my favorite movie of all-time, but I have little interest in this. What else can they really do?

      Ummm....MORE Dinosaurs IN 3D!!!!
    • David Banner
      They discovered a larger dino than the rex a few years ago and they believe it was white, and arctic. Maybe this one will make it's way? ;)

    This is Fantastic news, I loved all 3 Jurassic Park movies and been looking forward to the 4th one for some time, And will definitely see it in 3D.

      I don't come across a lot of people that agree with me on that. I'd still put the first one on top, but it's only very slightly ahead of JP3 for me, which I loved. I'm not huge on the second one, but it was good.

    BRING BACK TYRANNOSAURUS REX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Rockkicker
    I'm with the crowd that hopes something comes of the shaving cream can Newman left behind. They HAVE to go back to the original island

    I hope there's some interesting, new concepts that come out of a 4th film. Let's get some T-Rex back as well!
  • JBrotsis
    Alex, I literally just emailed you like a hour before you posted this to let you know the news hit the web, haha. So stoked for this movie, I hope it's as well written as the first or a bit better than the second. JP3...great new dinos but needed a better plot. Please: core characters return, core dinos return, and new dinos...but please don't show dinos with feathers or dinos that can "talk" to each other. I'm more into the dinos learning than speaking. And please bring in marine dinos like mososaur, deinosuchus, or pleiosaurus!!
  • Xerxexx
    ...nah. I prefer the first one...and only the first one...just really depends on what they bring to the table.
  • Xerxexx
    I always hated in JP 3 with the Spinosaurus killed the T-Rex. Jurassic Park was amazing because of the T-Rex. It became a unlikely hero at the end, saving them from the Raptors at the very last minute...and it dying after dominating the Spinosaurus was a bit of a slap in the face...just saying. The Spinosaurus was intimidating though...wait was the T-Rex the main dino? or the Raptors?
    • TommyTheGreenRanger2
      They should have had two T-rex's in JP3. One rex dies and the other one gets revenge at the end saving the people escaping. Mirroring the first movie a bit.
      • Xerxexx
        BRILLIANT!!!!!
  • Newman
    The problem is when following the book the Marines land on the original island and it is destroyed
  • castingcouch
    Not 48fps? I'm surprised.
  • Richie G
    Yeah maybe. The first two were really good, never saw the third one. As long as they don't revive that dinohuman hybrid script or bring in another dinosaur that's bigger than T-Rex ( the idea of that was week) this could be good

    Everybody I predicted this movie in 2006 where there were rumours that this movie will be produced in 2010.. and there will be Mosasaur.
