Though he seemed like a surprising choice to be handed the reins of the Jurassic Park franchise given the small-scale nature of his entertaining Safety Not Guaranteed, director Colin Trevorrow has thrown himself into prep for the latest entry in the dino franchise. He’s now out on location scouting and has tweeted a pic of what will become Islar Nublar.
From the looks of this, Jurassic Park will be coming home not only the fictional Nublar (all together now: looks Nublarsome!) but also Hawaii’s Kualoa Ranch, where chunks of the original were shot.
Trevorrow will work from a script currently credited to Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes duo Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, but most of the plot details (besides the presence of dinosaurs, obvs) are being kept quiet. The Safety director scored the job after convincing Jurassic Park head ranger Steven Spielberg and producer Frank Marshall of his bona fide love for the first three movies. We can only imagine the dino-visions dancing through his head right now.
Cameras will start rolling this year for a planned June 13, 2014 release date.
