Universal has confirmed the fourth Jurassic Park movie will be called 'Jurassic World' and will hit cinemas in June 2015

'Jurassic Park 4' will be titled 'Jurassic World'.

Movie studio Universal Pictures has announced the official title for the long-awaited fourth instalment in the dinosaur adventure franchise, which will be released on June 12, 2015.

The movie will be directed by Colin Trevorrow based on a script he drafted with screenwriter Derek Connolly, according to Deadline.

'Jurassic World' was originally set for release in June 2014 but was delayed by Universal in order to allow more time to develop the film's script, while casting is thought to have taken longer than expected, also.

Steven Spielberg's original 'Jurassic Park' was released in 1993 to critical acclaim and spawned a 1997 sequel, 'The Lost World'. Spielberg then gave up the director's chair for the third film, 'Jurassic Park III' in 2001, which was helmed by Joe Johnston.

Trevorrow recently indicated he wants to introduce new dinosaurs to the movie's prehistoric line-up, while it's been rumoured that underwater creatures may feature in the flick.

The director previously revealed that Spielberg, who is still a producer on the franchise, has been a great source of support to him.

He said: "It's incredible to have Steven, who's done this for decades and has such an incredible filmic knowledge and just understands the language of the story in a way that for us is very refreshing. It's not like getting notes from a studio executive, it's really just trying to crack this and make it the best it can be."

Dino-geek Gray (Simpkins) visits Jurassic Park with brother Zach (Robinson); the park's manager, their aunt Claire (Howard), is less than attentive until a new creation runs amok and raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) steps in. Despite a merely functional screenplay, it has enough scares, scale, ideas and variety to keep…
