Universal Pictures recently announced that ‘Jurassic Park 4′ has been retitled ‘Jurassic World’ and that the film will be released on June 12th, 2015. In March it was announced that Colin Trevorrow signed on to direct ‘Jurassic World,’ the highly-anticipated fourth installment of the blockbuster franchise that has grossed $1.9 billion at worldwide box office since the first film was released in 1993. The Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment production will be produced by Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley with Steven Spielberg as Executive Producer. The script was written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes).

Colin Trevorrow directed ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ for FilmDistrict and Big Beach Films starring Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass and Jake Johnson. The critically-acclaimed film debuted at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival where screenwriter Derek Connolly won the prestigious Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.
