Jurrassic World (Jurassic Park 4): Release Date, Cast, Latest News

February 12, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Jurassic World, which is kind of like Jurassic Park 4 and also kind of like a sequel to the original Jurassic Park, is coming. It’s set to start filming in Oahu, Hawaii in April before moving to Kauai, and the Near Orleans in June.

What’s the movie going to be about and who will be in it?

Let’s check out what we know so far:

-The movie was originally scheduled to start filming in summer 2013 in Baton rouge, reported the Times-Picayune. It was postponed to give Colin Trevorrow, the newly announced director, time to rework the script. 

-Steven Spielberg, who directed the original Jurassic Park, will be executive director.

-Chris Pratt is the lead actor. “For me, Jurassic Park was really kind of my Star Wars,” Pratt told QMI Agency. ““I lined up at the theatre to see it, I saw it opening night, I saw every sequel, I’ve seen it a whole bunch of times… for me that was my big movie, I think I was 13 or 14 when it came out. And so it’s a big deal for me to be any part of that, let alone this part I’m going to be playing. I’m thrilled about it.”

-Pratt added to MTV that his character will have a mix of the Jeff Goldblum cynicism and the Sam Neil excitement.

-Trevorrow revealed that the film will be shooting on both 35 MM and 65 MM, which could indicate that the movie will be shown in IMAX as well as regular release.

-The release date is June 12, 2015.
