As you know, Universal has set June 13, 2014 for the 3D theatrical release date for JURASSIC PARK IV, no screenwriter nor director has been hired yet at this point.
But here’s one thing for sure, Steven Spielberg’s long-time collaborator, producer Kathleen Kennedy won’t return for JURASSIC PARK IV. Kathleen’s husband, producer Frank Marshall tweeted the following..
“Ms. Kennedy has moved onto Star Wars and will not be producing JP4. She’s traded raptors for TIE fighters.”
Kathleen Kennedy is now Lucasfilm’s head honcho and will be busy with Disney developing STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, scripted by Michael Arndt, to be directed by J.J. Abrams, not to mention those other STAR WARS spin-off/stand alones, plus EPISODE VIII and IX, so ya, Kathleen will be busy all right!
Steven Spielberg will only be involved with JURASSIC PARK IV in producing capacity, it’d be interesting to see who they’ll hire as the director. More interesting is what new dinosaurs will be featured in this fourth installment.
I don’t know if I’m 100% stoked yet about JURASSIC PARK IV but I’m going to keep an open mind about it.
