Jurassic Park IV confirmed for 2015, but is it a sequel or a reboot?

Having taken over a decade to get the official green light, hopes that the long-awaited Jurassic Park IV seeing the light of day were dealt a blow last month when Universal Pictures announced it was to place the sequel on “indefinite hold.” However, earlier this week it was rumoured that the studio could instead be eyeing a summer 2015 release date, and that now appears to be confirmed with Coming Soon spotting a promotional poster for the next chapter in the dino-saga at the Licensing Expo 2013….

As you can see, there’s a distinct lack of numbering on that poster, so the big question is – is this a sequel, or is it actually a reboot? 

Jurassic Park IV – or maybe that should be plain old Jurassic Park? – is being executive produced by Steven Spielberg with Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) directing a script that’s seen a number of writers involved, including Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), William Monahan (The Departed, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) and Mark Protosevich (Thor, Oldboy).
