Universal Studios announced today that the fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise will open June 13, 2014!

Though information has been hard to find as the project gets put together, we do know that the studio hired Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) to pen the script. Spielberg is producing, and they’re still in search of a director. Additionally, this installment will be shot in 3D, unlike the previous three films.

The Jurassic Park franchise will be reinvigorated when the first Jurassic Park film is re-released in 3D this April, celebrating it’s 20th anniversary. You can watch a trailer and see a poster at the link.

Earlier this week, Spielberg’s Robopocalypse (starring Anne Hathaway and Chris Hemsworth) was postponed indefinitely due to timing and financial issues. For for Spielberg fans, it’s exciting news that Jurassic Park 4 is now dated so there’s something definite to look forward to!

Jurassic Park 4 was originally confirmed by Steve Spielberg at Comic-Con 2011.
