'Jurassic Park 4' finds its director

The "Jurassic Park" franchise is getting fresh blood to lead its fourth installment.

Deadline reports that Colin Trevorrow has been tapped to helm "Jurassic Park 4," which will be executive produced by original "Jurassic Park" director, Steven Spielberg.

The fourth "Jurassic" has Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver ("Rise of the Planet of the Apes") handling the script, and will be filmed in 3-D. The anticipated release date is June 13, 2014.

"Jurassic Park 4" will be Trevorrow's second time directing a feature film; he made his debut with 2012's "Safety Not Guaranteed," a rom-com with a sci-fi bent that starred Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass and Jake Johnson.

Frank Marshall, who's producing the project with Patrick Crowley, said on Twitter that Trevorrow was chosen because he gets the "Jurassic Park" universe.

"Thrilled to have director on 'JP4,' Colin Trevorrow, an exciting young filmmaker who understands and respects the world that is Jurassic Park," Marshall posted on Thursday.

    Let's not be too hasty. JP 2 wan not bad. 3 was pretty horrific. That does not mean 4 will be bad. There have been better sequels than the original many times. I'm expecting the next Superman to be better than any.

    Just please, no dinosaurs running the streets of San Diego again. Lost World was definitely the worst of the three movies...even though the book was a decent read.

    Jurassic Park 2 and 3 were crap and yet they're trying their luck with a fourth film? Hollywood is desperate.
