JP4 2015It looks like Jurassic Park IV will be part of the long list of highly anticipated movies being released in 2015. After an earlier announcement that the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park film series was getting a June 2014 release date, Universal halted production because of script and scale issues. Universal wants to make the film much larger than what was originally conceived, but it turns out we may only have to wait a year longer than we expected to return to Jurassic Park.

Coming Soon has some folks attending the Licensing Expo 2013 in Las Vegas, and they spotted a new studio banner proclaiming a new 2015 release date for the dino-sequel. But aside from the year, the banner does not indicate a more specific date. Presumably it would arrive during the summer movie-going season. Coming Soon also reports that Jurassic Park IV will be shot in 3D, but Universal has yet to confirm or deny these reports.

Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow is helming the new Jurassic Park film. He has hinted of the film, that the action would return to Site A on Isla Nublar, where the first film took place. Screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) will take a stab at JP IV’s script, while Frank Marshall will produce.

With a summer already filled with Star Wars: Episode VII, The Avengers 2, and maybe Prometheus 2, you have to wonder if there’s enough room for another blockbuster like Jurassic Park IV. Considering it will have been 14 years between Jurassic Park movies (Jurassic Park III was released in 2001), let’s hope the sequel can re-capture the magic of the original.

Jurassic Park IV will, apparently, hit theaters everywhere sometime in 2015.
