“Jurassic Park 4″ won’t have feathers, says director


Posted by on

Colin Trevorrow has revealed that “Jurassic Park 4″ won’t be historically accurate in at least one way: there won’t be any feathered dinosaurs in his movie. The “Safety Not Guaranteed” director took to Twitter to set the record straight about the recent scientific development.

“No feathers. #JP4,” he tweeted.

Trevorrow was only announced as director of the upcoming Universal Pictures movie earlier this month. This will be the first installment in the “Jurassic Park” franchise since 2001’s “Jurassic Park III,” which means it’s the first movie in the series with the knowledge that dinosaurs actually used to have feathers. We’re okay with him choosing continuity over scientific accuracy in this case.

Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver penned the “Jurassic Park 4″ script, and Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley are producing with Steven Spielberg executive producing. The plot of the movie has not yet been released, though it is due in theaters on June 13, 2014. When IFC asked former star Laura Dern if she’d be interested to return for the new movie, she said, “We’ll see what they do.”

“Jurassic Park 4” to be directed by Colin Trevorrow


Posted by on

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Pictures has picked the director of “Jurassic Park 4″: newcomer indie director Colin Trevorrow. This will be the first movie in the franchise since 2001’s “Jurassic Park III.”

Trevorrow’s first feature film, last year’s “Safety Not Guaranteed,” starred Aubrey Plaza as a young journalist investigating a man (Mark Duplass) who claims to have invented time travel. The comedy was very well received, and was nominated for several awards at the Sundance Film Festival and the Independent Spirit Awards.

Also attached to “Jurassic Park 4” are producers Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley and (of course) executive producer Steven Spielberg. “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver will be penning the script. The film is scheduled for release on June 13, 2014.

Laura Dern talks potentially returning for “Jurassic Park 4″


Posted by on

Of all the projects Laura Dern has worked on, the one she is perhaps most known for is “Jurassic Park.” That’s why it seemed only natural to ask her about the upcoming “Jurassic Park 4,” which has been discussed for years but finally seems to be coming to fruition soon.

“I know a little and it’s been ever-changing. It’s been evolving for many years as Steven has been considering it so that’s all I can say right now,” Dern told IFC on the Spirit Awards red carpet. “But very excited about the original ‘Jurassic Park’ coming out in 3D this summer. I’m going to see it soon, which will be very interesting.”

There’s little known about “Jurassic Park 4,” specifically if it will involve the cast of the original “Jurassic Park” or what it will be about. Dern doesn’t seem to have decided whether or not she’d want to join the movie if she had an opportunity to do so.

“Oh, I don’t know. We’ll see what they do. Right now we’re just focused on our party of this summer,” she said with a laugh.

“Jurassic Park 4″ is in some capable hands. Spielberg is producing the movie along with Frank Marshall, with Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver having written the screenplay for the movie. It’s due in theaters on June 13, 2014, and does not currently have a director attached. “Jurassic Park 3D’ is due out on April 5.
