There have been a few casting rumors surrounding the next Jurassic Park sequel, Jurassic World. Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, and Sam Neill are among those said to be taking the lead in the upcoming Colin Trevorrow dino-flick, but they remain unconfirmed. However, we do know who’s going to be playing the part of the defenseless child that inevitably finds a way to put the adults in a precarious position with the Jurassic monsters. (more…)

With filming on the Jurassic Park fourthquel being pushed back yet again it was a pleasant surprise to learn they had decided on an official title, Jurassic World, and an expected release date in the already overly crowded summer of 2015. Now there’s now some news on who might star. The Wrap has the scoop one Bryce Dallas Howard is in talk to star alongside the rumored-to-be-returning Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum.

Colin Trevorrow is still attached to direct with Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley producing. Jurassic World is set to open June 12th, 2015, which for those keeping track is 22 years after the first was released in theatres.

Are you excited to see the franchise continue? How about with Howard as the star?

So, About That ‘Jurassic World’ Pitch Trailer…

Hot on the heels of the official announcement that Jurassic World, the much delayed forth in a franchise hellbent on squeezing every last little drop of blood out of a Micheal Crichton novel (figuratively) encased in amber, will hit theaters the summer of 2015 comes this. A video that was uploaded in the wee hours of the morning, from a YouTube user claiming shown at the recent Star Wars Celebration Europe II. 

The following is the text from the original poster and you can check the video out after the jump:

“All I can say is this video was shown as part of Iain McCaig’s presentation at the recent Star Wars convention in Germany (he’s the fantastic concept artist and designer of Darth Maul). I can only presume it was part of a pitch for reigniting the JP movie franchise, if anyone can confirm please let me know. It was apparently shown to Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg. Mr McCaig actually said “it certainly got Steven interested in dinosaurs again…” I just think is so cool.”

Universal Confirms: It’s ‘Jurassic World’ in 2015

JURASSIC-WORLDa

The new Jurassic Park movie has been slowly, yet surely, chugging along through development, but if you still doubt that it’s actually, finally happening nearly 13 years after the release of Jurassic Park III, you should know that Jurassic World will be released on June 12, 2015. The new name and release date for the film was confirmed tonight by Deadline.

Deadline also further re-affirmed that the film is still under the stewardship of Colin Trevorrow, who will direct his own screenplay written with Derek Connolly. Also, Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are producing.

The confirmation of Jurassic World for 2015, a film originally set for a 2014 release, means that the movie is becoming part of a very busy summer at the movies that includes The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Assassin’s Creed, Terminator 5, Batman Vs Superman and the recently moved Ant Man. But there’s one flick that Jurassic World won’t have to compete against, and that’s Pirates of the Caribbean 5, which is now looking for a 2016 release date according to Deadline earlier today.

So what’s going on with Pirates 5? Script issues, naturally. Apparently, the latest attempt at a script by Jeff Nathanson is only at the online stage, and for the movie to make its old July 2015 release date, it would have to start filmming in February 2014, which mean the film would have to go into pre-production soon with only an outline and not a completed script, so Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer opted to do the smart thing and wait for a script. Pirates 5 will be directed by Kon-Tiki filmmakers Joachim Roenning and Espen Sandberg.

More news as it develops.

Legendary Pictures recently changed up their contract and are now working closely with Universal Pictures as opposed to their old buddies at Warner Bros.  With the change comes the need for Legendary execs to pick some projects they want to throw their money at.  And it looks like they may want to get involved in the upcoming return to the Jurassic Park franchise.

So far, the company has just expressed interest, so there’s nothing official yet.  They’ll still need to have a look at how the product is shaping up before offering cash flow.

And while it may seem like a simple game of “who gotz the money”, if Legendary gets involved they’ll get a bit of creative input on the project.  Thus, the final flick will end up a little more in their style.  They’ve worked on Man of Steel, the Dark Knight titles, Inception and many others (both good and bad), for those that don’t know.  In the end, even something like this could be a major factor in rescuing the Jurassic Park franchise from the toilet that was the third film.

Screen writer and director Colin Trevorrow (Safety not Guaranteed) recently went on the Jurassic Park Podcast to discuss what we can expect from his work on the upcoming Jurassic Park 4 movie. Yeah, I know, “officially” the movie is not got a “4” on it, but as you’ll hear in the podcast video, Trevorrow can’t even bring himself to not say it just about every time he mentions the movie title.

Don’t worry about spoilers, he’s very careful to not spoil anything he has planned. Take a listen and then you can check out some of the high points listed below to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

Here are some of the high points of the podcast thanks to Bleedingcool’s Brendon Connelly:

  • Trevorrow refused to answer “Would you like to get John Williams back making the music?” instead opting to say only “Do I love John Williams and all of his music? Of course.”
  • Trevorrow says “It’s important to make a movie for the fans but I also have to remember that there’s a lot of people who just couldn’t care less and need me to make a solid case for why the hell there’s a Jurassic Park 4 in the first place and I want to make a movie for them too.”
  • “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.”
  • “When I get to sit down with guys like John Rosengrant and adjust the talon length on a dinosaur and then we’re looking at variations on skin colour, that never feels like work. That’s when I feel like a kid.”
  • “What is my favourite dinosaur? We have a new one that’s pretty cool. I’m not going to tell you anything about it, but… it’s pretty bad ass. I think Jack Horner said something about that too” – and indeed he did, as previously discussed here at the site.
  • “I feel like, obviously, everyone’s favourite is the T-Rex and there’s just something so iconic about that animal.”
  • Trevorrow suggested that fans don’t go looking for spoilers. He wants to cherish this time when no-one knows “what the hell we’re doing.”
  • One apparently key rumour-busting quote goes like this:“I saw some of the rumours 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. So I would say don’t believe everything you read, there are way more insiders on the internet than there are in real life.”

Ahead of the yearly chaos that is San Diego Comic Con there’s always some pieces of films yet to be that sneak out. SDCC has countered that by releasing their planned events for each day, but even then things come out that nobody expected. In this case, the past has returned.

According to Movieweb, this is the first teaser poster to Jurassic Park IV. That’s four for those of us who never studied Roman numerals. It feels sketchy seeing as the movie is still in the early stages of development, but they claim it’s the real deal. The claim is this comes from an insider at Amblin Entertainment, but before you pass judgement take a look below,
