Jurassic Park IV is due in theaters in June 2014. This will be the first new Jurassic Park movie since the release of Jurassic Park III in 2001. Where could the story go after 13 years? According to the film’s director, Colin Trevorrow, it looks like the new film will go back to where it all started: Isla Nublar.
Trevorrow recently tweeted an image (seen above) hinting where Jurassic Park IV will take place. It’s curious to think what the story will have in store for audiences if the movie is returning to its point of origin at Site A, especially more than 20 years after the events of the original Jurassic Park. Isla Nublar is about 120 miles off the coast of Costa Rica, and only 87 miles away from Site B on Isla Sorna, where Jurassic Park: The Lost World and Jurassic Park III took place.
There is not much else known about the narrative of Jurassic Park IV at this point. Colin Trevorrow was hired to direct the fourth Jurassic Park film after gaining critical and commercial success with his debut feature film Safety Not Guaranteed, starring Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, and Jake M. Johnson.
Long-time Jurassic Park producer Kathleen Kennedy will not return for the fourth outing. She will be working on Star Wars: Episode VII with director J.J. Abrams and screenwriter Michael Arndt for Disney and Lucasfilm instead.
Jurassic Park IV will hit theaters everywhere on June 13, 2014, in 3D and IMAX.
