Universal Pictures picks newcomer Trevorrow to direct Jurassic Park 4
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Hollywood newcomer Colin Trevorrow was named on Thursday as the director of the long-awaited fourth installment of dinosaur movie franchise Jurassic Park.
Universal Pictures said Steven Spielberg, who directed the first two movies in the US$1.9 billion (S$2.4 billion) worldwide franchise, will be the executive producer of Jurassic Park 4 and will not direct.
Trevorrow, 36, is little known in Hollywood. He directed the independent movie Safety Not Guaranteed, shown at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, and had previously made a TV movie and documentary.
Universal said that Jurassic Park 4 will be made in 3-D but did not announce a release date.
