Jurassic World is an upcoming 2015 American science fiction adventure film directed by Colin Trevorrow. It is the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park film series. The screenplay was co-written by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, and B. D. Wong. Wong is the only actor from any of the previous films to appear in Jurassic World.
A fourth film was initially intended to begin production in 2004 for a summer 2005 release, but endured over a decade of “development hell” as scheduled release dates were pushed back several times while the script went through revisions. Steven Spielberg, director of the first two Jurassic Park films, acts as executive producer as he did for the third film Jurassic Park III. Thomas Tull also acts as an executive producer; his production company, Legendary Pictures, funded approximately 20 percent of the film’s budget. The film was produced by Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley, and is scheduled to be released on June 12, 2015 in North America, by Universal Pictures. It is the second film to take place on Isla Nublar, as the previous two films took place on Isla Sorna (Site B).
Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar, an island located off Central America‘s Pacific Coast near Costa Rica, now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. This new park is owned by the Masrani Global Corporation. Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), a member of the park’s on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on a group of Velociraptors, known as Blue, Charlie, Delta and Echo. At the corporation’s request, the park’s geneticists create a hybrid dinosaur known as Indominus rex (created from the DNA of Giganotosaurus, Rugops, Majungasaurus, and Carnotaurus) to boost visitor attendance. Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) is the park’s operations manager. Her nephews, Zach (Nick Robinson) and Gray (Ty Simpkins), are visiting the island when the hybrid escapes and are subsequently caught up in the creature’s deadly rampage. Now, it is up to Owen and Jurassic World’s security team to contain the hybrid dinosaur before she can cause more damage.
