'Jurassic Park IV' Dated for 2014

Jurassic Park

Last year, producer Frank Marshall said he expected the Jurassic Park IV movie to be in theaters within two years, and he was true to his word. Jurassic Park IV has been dated for June 14, 2014, Universal announced last Friday.

Why did it take nearly 13 years? The script, said producer Kathleen Kennedy.

"It's really hard to keep these things going when there's an expectation and a desire by the public and the audience to keep certain franchises going.

"As filmmakers, we often sit there going, 'Okay. We have to answer the question, 'Why do another one?' If you can't answer that question, you shouldn't be doing it. It's tough.

"We're trying to come up with a story that makes sense and isn't going to disappoint people and is, hopefully, going to get people excited and reinvigorate the franchise. We've got to start with a script and the story," Kennedy explained back in September.

Mark Protosevich did a pass on the script, but the most recent version is by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.

No director is attached, but with Robopocalypse on hold, will Steven Spielberg take a crack at it?

Jurassic Park IV is expected to kick off a new trilogy for the franchise.
