Universal 100thUniversal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment announced today that Colin Trevorrow will direct the highly anticipated Jurassic Park 4. The film is set to open in theaters across the United States on June 13, 2014.

The script for the new Jurassic Park film, which will be shot in 3-D, was written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Plane of the Apes).

Trevorrow's first feature film was last year's Safety Not Guaranteed (2012), starring Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, and Jake Johnson. The film is already available on Blu-ray courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. See our listing and review here.

The first two Jurassic Park films were directed by Steven Spielberg, while the third film was directed by Joe Johnston (Captain America). The first film will be rereleased theatrically in 3-D on April 5th.

Very strange choice. Indie directors to big mainstream franchise pictures tends not to work well.

I'm all for Indie Directors moving to big pictures, but this guy has only Directed three movies, and one of those was a documentary while the other was a TV movie. Strange choice indeed. Hopefully they know what they are doing here.

I somewhat agree. There should be a transitional period, not a straight jump to a big hollywood blockbuster. Recent example is Marc Webb. Thought he did an outstanding job on 500 days of Summer. Then he did Spiderman right after, and man he sure wasn't ready for that and it showed.

Webb knocked Spider-Man out of the park... so let's see if this guy can also do the park thing.

Safety Not Guaranteed was great, at the very least this will still be better than The Lost World and easily better than JP3 was. Also just because he's only previously done low budget films doesn't mean he can't do well with this, just look at Raimi, he's been a big Hollywood director for some time and Oz is a piece of crap, as was Spidey 3.

Strange choice indeed but I agree about Marc Webb; to me, he made the best Spider-Man movie ever! So I'll give this guy a chance although I don't think there was a need for a fourth Jurassic Park film, to be honest...

I'm willing to give him a chance. Heck Spielberg himself had only directed I believe Duel and Sugarland Express before he did Jaws and I think that turned out pretty Well.

Strange that Joe Johnston's not sticking around. I thought he'd be announced as soon as it was confirmed that he wasn't going to get the job of directing Episode VII. Trevorrow's a good choice though, he's got a great handle on character, hopefully he can lure Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum back. And once they get to Isla Nublar, they find Mr. Arnold (Samuel L. Jackson) survived, and made a cybernetic arm out of machine parts and is going around choking raptors. "I HAVE HAD IT WITH THESE MOTHERF**KING DINOSAURS ON THIS MOTHERF**KING ISLAND!" (maybe not that last part...)

I actually find this encouraging. Trevorrow may be an indie filmmaker with no experience with big blockbusters such as this, but Safety Not Guaranteed did in fact build to a rather sensational, fantastical final. So it proves, at least, that Trevorrow has that streak of wonderment and imagination about him as a filmmaker. Thatís potential.

@retablo, Webb knocked Spider-Man out of the park? LOL!!!! Most people I know hated it. Teenagers, people on Facebook, coworkers, comic book nerds just hated the new Spider-Man. Sony picked Webb because he was cheap, and probably because they want to extort Marvel for the rights by screwing up their character.

As for JP4, once again, this guy will work dirt cheap and be a yes man to Spielberg. This is just another cheap cash-in, and it's plain as day. I would suggest audiences avoid this film. He has pulled this stunt so many times, it is not funny.

I have no idea who Colin Trevorrow is. Seriously. At the very least, they should've brought back Joe Johnston to direct JP4.

Odd choice, but if he has Spielberg's approval, then just maybe there's a good reason for his hire.

As for Marc Webb's Spider-Man film, it was comparable to Raimi's first Spider-Man film, 4 out of 5 stars (and I'm a comic book nerd, technoreaper).

technoreaper - No, they didn't pick Webb because he was "cheap". They picked him on the basis of the young adult love story he created with (500) days, and wanted to make sure the Peter/Gwen love story felt real and had substance... which it did. Anyone can direct CGI action scenes, since that's mostly second unit/computer artists anyway.

And you must not know many people. 73% fresh on RT, and 81% of users liked it. Pretty solid numbers.

"Hire a director with a proper name"? One of the more idiotic comments I've read here...

You guys, this is not some sacred franchise... or did none of you watch Jurassic Park 3? Safety Not Guaranteed, although made cheaply, did not look cheap and had both tension, suspense and sci-fi elements to it. It was very good and if you haven't seen it, I recommend doing so (it's on Netflix streaming currently).

Successful genre directors like Peter Jackson, Sam Raimi, James Cameron and Joe Dante (just to name a few) all got their start working on B movies. Safety Not Guaranteed is not even a B movie. It's totally legit. I have no reason not to support this decision.

I loved Safety Not Guaranteed, and would have liked to see a few more smaller films from him. But I guess it's hard to turn down such a big palette...definitely curious.
