'Jurassic Park 4' delayed by Universal
— Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) May 2, 2013
Unfortunately, things quickly fell apart from there - with JP4's digital assets manager Todd Smoyer tweeting only a few days later: "Hollywood makes and crushes dreams. Goodbye JP4." That tweet, along with others from members of the film crew, have since been deleted.
According to THR, JP4 was headed for a June 24th production start date - but Universal only received a draft script from Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly earlier this week. Hence the realization that next summer's release date wasn't going to work.
And frankly, I'm down with that. It's been over 12 years since JP3 hit theaters - what's another year or two if the movie is something worth waiting for? Shouldn't the special FX teams be given as much time as possible to create the most realistic looking dinos we've ever seen? Especially if that dino scares the living hell out of us?
Take your time Trevorrow. My return ticket to Isla Nublar can wait a bit longer to be punched.
