After rumors which included a return of Steven Spielberg to the directorial chair, Universal Pictures has finally announced the director for Jurassic Park 4, and chances are, you have no idea who he is.
The director will be Colin Trevorrow, who helmed the absolutely charming light sci-fi indie comedy Safety Not Guaranteed. If you haven’t seen the film, it’s a great watch, a mix of an indie romance film and some soft time travel elements. That said, I can’t say it’s the best highlight reel to determine a guy to oversee dinosaurs.
However, he did adeptly mix high concept with some solid footing for human characters, so maybe he is the right man for the job. Early rumors placed Trevorrow as a possible Star Wars: Episode VII director, so clearly, people in Hollywood are high on him, but we will have to see how he does with dozens of rampaging dinos.
Jurassic Park 4 is set for a June 13th, 2014 release. It better be better than Jurassic Park III.
