First snubbed at the Oscars, and now Jurassic Park IV will be directed by somebody else. This isn’t really Steven Spielberg’s month, is it? The director of the first Jurassic Park film will not return for the billion-dollar, 3-D fourth installment. Instead, Universal announced on Thursday that Colin Trevorrow will be directing while Spielberg will serve as executive producer. This will be Trevorrow’s first foray into a big-budget films; his previous credits include the 2012 indie darling Safety Not Guaranteed. The original Jurassic Park will be re-released in 3-D on April 5 in honor of the 20th anniversary of its release.
