Jurassic Park 4 delayed for quality purposes


It appears that we will have to wait a little longer for Jurassic Park 4 to land. The film was originally schedule to come out next summer and the screenplay was all ship shape with director Colin Trevorrow set to take the helm. However, a few days crew members working pre-production tweeted that the film had been delayed. Those Tweets were quickly taken down, but it eventually lead to Universal Studios releasing an official confirmation that the film has been indefinitely delayed.

It doesn’t seem like we won’t be getting the movie at all and sources say that the delay is indeed to make the movie better (or more epic) and not because of some argument or butting of heads. Often we get delays and it is a sign of a bad film, but in this case the movie is so far out from shooting and had such a short time to release that it is probably for the best. Judging from Universals statement, which you can read below, this isn’t the death of the film just a quick nap to make it better. I mean it couldn’t get worse, right?

In coordination with filmmakers, Universal has decided to release Jurassic Park 4 at a later date giving the studio and filmmakers adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal’s beloved franchise.  We could not be more excited about the vision that Colin Trevorrow has created for this film, and we look forward to watching as he and the producers create another great chapter in this franchise’s storied history.
