Jurassic World

Jurassic World: Back in May, we reported that Jurassic Park IV, originally scheduled for release in June 2014, would be delayed until "a later date." Universal Pictures now says the "later date" will be June 12, 2015; the studio also says the movie will be shot in 3D and that it has a new title -- Jurassic World -- and, of course, a new logo! Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) remains on board as director. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Speaking of the summer of 2015, we just heard that Disney moved Ant-Man from November to July 31, 2015, and now comes word that Disney's fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean series has been delayed indefinitely from its planned July 10, 2015 release date. The key talent remains in place for the large-scale, big-budget production -- Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, and Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Roenning and Espen Sandberg -- but Jeff Nathanson's script is not ready yet. The summer of 2016 looks more likely. [Deadline]

Chaos Walking: Robert Zemeckis, known for his innovative filmmaking, is in negotiations to direct a script by the wildly imaginative Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich). The new project is titled Chaos Walking, based on a young-adult, sci-fi trilogy of novels by Patrick Ness set on a distant planet where an infection "suddenly makes all thought visible," leading to, well, all kinds of chaos and a possible war between immigrant humans and native nonhumans.

The Railway Man Trailer: Academy Award winners Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman star as husband and wife in The Railway Man, a drama about a former prisoner of war who endeavors to find his chief torturer and come to terms with the trauma he has suffered for many years. The movie does not yet have a release date, but the first trailer certainly looks powerful. [Lionsgate UK]
