Rise of the Planet of the Apes writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are writing the script, but no story details have been released at this time. Frank Marshall is producing alongside Patrick Crowley, with original Jurassic Park director Steven Spielberg serving as an executive producer. The sequel will also be shot in 3D.
You may recall that Colin Trevorrow was one of the first directors rumored to be up for the coveted Star Wars: Episode VII directing gig, which was ultimately won by J.J. Abrams. Ironically, producer Kathleen Kennedy departed from Jurassic Park IV last month to focus on Star Wars: Episode VII.
The first three movies Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and Jurassic Park III, have grossed over $2 billion worldwide. The original Jurassic Park will be re-released in theaters with an all new 3D conversion on April 5.
