Universal Pictures officially announced on Thursday, March 14 that Colin Trevorrow, best known for helming 2012's indie film "Safety Not Guaranteed", was tapped to take on the directing role for the long-gestating project.
The highly-anticipated fourth installment of the blockbuster franchise will be shot in 3D, with the script written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley produce it, while Steven Spielberg, the man who started the franchise, will serve as executive producer.
