Summer 2015 is already shaping up to be a big deal, but now it's set to get positively prehistoric.
The fourth "Jurassic Park" flick -- the ominously titled "Jurassic World" -- will be roaring into theaters on June 12, 2015, almost 14 years to the day since "Jurassic Park III" came out.
"Jurassic World" is currently the only film slated for that weekend, but with all the calendar switcheroos happening lately, those crazy dinosaurs will probably get some company soon.
Director Colin Trevorrow divulged a few details about "Jurassic World" when he appeared on a podcast in August. "I saw some of the rumors on the Internet and I would have all kinds of red flags going off if I heard they were going to muzzle a T. rex," he said. "So I would say don't believe everything you read; there are way more insiders on the Internet than there are in real life."
The director, whose biggest credit to date is the funky Sundance sci-fi flick "Safety Not Guaranteed," added, "This is not a paycheck gig for me and it's not the movie that I'm making so I can make the movies that I really want to make. I actually want to make a kick-ass 'Jurassic Park' movie."
Trevorrow will be working from a script he co-wrote with "Safety" writer Derek Connolly. Making the impressive leap from a time-traveling indie to a 3D extravaganza produced by Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall, Trevorrow and Connolly have two years to create a fully realized dino spectacle that Universal will be pushing as a summer blockbuster.
No pressure, guys.
