At Comic-Con 2011, Steven Spielberg announced that a fourth installment in the "Jurassic Park" series was in the works and would be released over the next two or three years.
Though not a lot of progress appears to have been made, that timetable still looks good. Amblin Entertainment and Universal Pictures just announced that "Jurassic Park IV" will be shot in 3D and released in theaters on June 13, 2014. Spielberg, who's rumored to have come up with the idea for a fourth installment with writer Mark Protosevich ("I Am Legend"), will be executive producer. No word on a director or cast, so that release date might still be subject to change. Then again, since Universal is planning on releasing the original "Jurassic Park" to theaters in 3D on April 5, 2013, that may be enough incentive enough to stay on schedule.
But Spielberg has a lot on his plate. His sci-fi action flick "Robopocalypse" is listed as being in pre-production with a projected theatrical release in 2014, and "When Worlds Collide," which he's producing but not directing, is in limbo right now. He's also listed as being executive director for future sequels for "Real Steel," "The Adventures of Tintin," and "Transformers," and was recently announced as the director for "Indiana Jones 5."
