Despite a scheduled summer 2014 opening, Jurassic Park IV still has a ways to go before it can enter production. There’s still no director or star attached, though writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver turned in a new draft of the script earlier this year.

And the past comes alive once again: we’ve got a brief report that Jurassic Park 4 has been given a release date by Universal. All the info available now is from THR’s Borys Kit, who says,
Deadline adds that the film will be shot in native 3D. The film will be based on the script by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), who were hired to write last year for producers Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy. Their draft was delivered this week, and now the search for a director is on. (With Spielberg’s Robopocalypse delayed, expect much speculation about him directing this episode. Nothing to that effect is even hinted right now, much less confirmed.) But Universal is confident enough in the process to nail down a release date, at least. We don’t have any story info yet.
Some sequels are happening, others might not, and there’s even one you can potentially be a part of in this edition of Sequel Bits. After the jump read about the following.
- Producer Frank Marshall thinks Jurassic Park IV will be in theaters by 2014.
- A fifth Bourne film would definitely follow Jeremy Renner‘s character.
- Join the cast of The Expendables 2 with a new iPhone app.
- Ben Stiller seems pessimistic about Zoolander 2.
