Universal's 'Jurassic Park 4' to Hit Theaters in June 2014

No director or cast is yet attached to the summer tentpole; Steven Spielberg returns to produce the long-awaited next installment in the franchise.

Universal Pictures will open Jurassic Park 4 on June 13, 2014, the heart of summer.

Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall are returning to produce the long-awaited next installment in the franchise, although no director or cast is yet attached. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) are writing the script.

Spielberg -- who only days ago revealed that Robopocalypse won't be his next directing project -- directed the first two films in the Jurassic Park franchise.

A fourth installment has been in works for years. Jurassic Park III, directed by Joe Johnston, opened in theaters in July 2001.

Marshall said in a July interview that Jurassic Park 4 would still rely on animatronic dinosaurs despite the advancements in technology over the past decade.

So far, the movie has June 13, 2014 to itself.
