If you were a child in the 90s then no doubt you had a massive obsession with dinosaurs and if you didn't then you were watching the wrong films. Steven Spielberg's massive blockbuster Jurassic Park, based on Michael Chricton's novel, was the high grossing film ever after it's release. Spielberg offered layer upon layer of dino goodness, that to this day still manages to offer the same action and humor as it did nineteen years ago.

It was inevitable that it would lead to sequels, Spielberg attempted with The Lost World: Jurassic Park but it couldn't achieve the same level of quality as it's predecessor and Joe Johnston had a crack at it in 2001 but the less said about that the better. A fourth installment has been lingering around Hollywood for the last decade. Details of a fourth installment have spread across the internet showcasing some of the weirdest and most wonderful ideas. The most absurd script contained Dino-Human hybrids that had the ability to use guns, beautifully weird yet impossible to bring to the screen. It was released a few months ago that Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow was offered the job, tweeting location spotting in Hawaii little under a month ago. Yet it was revealed a week ago that the film was being put on hold due to the director having creative disagreements with the studio, involving the script getting rewritten.

The new installment was set a release date by the studios, aiming to have the film released by  June 2014. Whether it was the speed that the studio wanted to roll out the new installment or issues over script, it would seem that it could be a while till we see Isla Nublar again.
