Jurassic Park 4 was all the talk of the town up until a month or so ago when the lysine contingency seemed to have been implemented with the film’s plug getting pulled. Reports stated that Steven Spielberg was not content with the screenplay. Whatever went on, Universal Pictures and producer Frank Marshall put he project on ice, rather than giving it up for extinct, focusing on developing the project without concerning themselves with release schedule time strains.
Cut to the present date and a huge Jurassic Park logo was spotted alongside the number 2015 at this year’s Licensing Expo in Las Vegas suggesting things are actually falling into place at last. Not only that, the Licensing Expo brochure also offered up some juicy details that the film will actually be shot in 3D. Surely there must be something to all of these dinosaur sightings…
A few months ago you will all remember how the attached director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) tweeted a scouting poto of the original Jurassic Park island. It seems he never abandoned the project based on one of his recent tweets last week which confirmed he was back in the office working on the Jurassic sequel:
Back at work today, toys from 20 years ago waiting in my office. Thanks @ledoctor for keeping them in the box. pic.twitter.com/Fu7jX7EPeb

Finally, as far as the script is concerned, the last details we have are that Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) were hard at work on that front whilst Frank Marshall and Steven Spielberg will be producing. Given the latest Licensing Expo finds we should expect more details very soon.
