“Jurassic Park IV” cleared a big hurdle and named a director. The Steven Spielberg produced proejct will have Colin Trevorrow, who helmed the indie film “Safety Not Guaranteed” will tackle the project. “Rise of the Planet of the Apes'” writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver penned the script. No word on casting but with the film scheduled to hit theaters next year, expect news to come fast and furiously.
