Kathleen Kennedy is a woman that has the weight of the world upon her shoulders. Or, perhaps more appropriately, she has the weight of a thousand star systems on her shoulders, backed with the potential wrath of an army of fans. So now that she’s gearing up to make sure Star Wars Episode VII goes smoothly, she’s decided to say goodbye to her producing duties on Jurassic Park IV.
According to Kennedy’s husband, Frank Marshall:
No, Ms. Kennedy has moved onto Star Wars and will not be producing JP4. She’s traded raptors for TIE fighters.
It doesn’t come as much of a surprise, considering how much needs to get done what with all the spin-offs that Lucasfilm appears to be planning. But never fear, her production role will be changing hands to those of Marshall. Steven Spielberg will, of course, also be involved in an executive producer role. So rampaging dinosaur fans need not panic.
Look for Jurassic Park IV to hit theaters on June 13th, 2014.
Thanks to /film for the heads-up.
