Colin Trevorrow (“Safety Not Guaranteed”) is directing the epic action-adventure from a draft of the screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley join the team as fellow producers.
The first three films in the series have taken in $1.9 billion and this year’s 3D re-release of the original film, “Jurassic Park,” has brought in $114 million globally.
The 3D re-release of the original did very well in China, quickly soaring to No.1 at the box office in late August.
The original "Jurassic Park," which never played in China, was a bona fide blockbuster when it came out in 1993, eventually bringing in $970 million worldwide. It topped another Spielberg film, "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial," to become the highest-grossing film up to that time.
Two sequels followed, “The Lost World” in 1997 and “Jurassic Park 3″ in 2001.
