Trevorrow’s feature-length directorial debut was in Safety Not Guaranteed, a low-budget time travel movie which was well received last year. Trevorrow made the jump to the much anticipated sequel after having met with the Universal Pictures studio heads and filmmakers. Given Trevorrow’s love for the first three Jurassic Park movies, they thought he would be a perfect match for the film franchise, and the first of the movies is to be released in 3D on April 5.
Jurassic Park 4 is the latest in a series of movies stemming from Michael Crichton’s novel. The movie is to be produced by Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley, with a script from Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes), with Steven Spielberg serving as executive producer. It is being filmed in 3D (as opposed to being converted from 2D) and is scheduled to be released June 13, 2014.
