Today, Universal announced that it plans to release Jurassic Park 4 next year. They don’t even have a director yet, but they’ve got an official distribution date. They must be pretty confident in their script then (and they should be since it’s by the same duo that brought you Rise of the Planet of the Apes). Also, for those of you who’ve missed Community as much as we have, NBC unleashed a brand-new promo clip in which the Greendale gang parodies The Hunger Games. It’s perfect! And Louis C.K. is in talks to join David O. Russell‘s next movie, which includes people like Bradley Cooper and Amy Adams yo! All that and more below.
- Jurassic Park 4 Will Hit Theaters In 2014: Universal is totally serious about Jurassic Park 4. According to /Film, the next sequel will hit theaters in 3D on June 13, 2014. Steven Spielberg is not going to be directing, but he’ll still be involved as producer. The film is based on a script by Rise of the Planet of the Apes scribes Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who turned in their draft this week. No details on the story yet, but we trust the writers have something good in store.
- Louis C.K. Might Play An FBI Agent In David O. Russell’s Next Project: Louis C.K., the comedian’s comedian, is in talks to join David O. Russell’s next project, which already includes Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale and Amy Adams. That’s quite a cast he’s got on his hands. The film was previously titled American Bullshit and follows a con-artist and his girlfriend who get busted by an ambitious FBI agent. The couple then helps the force set up a massive sting operation. According to /Film, C.K. would be playing the part of an FBI agent. We’re not sure if O. Russell would embrace C.K.’s raw humor, but we’re excited to see him on the big screen and outside of his comfort zone.
- Emma Stone Vs. Jessica Rabbit: Emma Stone is back in theaters ya’ll. She’s playing a very Jessica Rabbit-like character in Ruben Fleischer‘s Gangster Squad. Vulture took note of the striking similarities between Stone and Rabbit and put together a cool little chart. It’s worth your time.
- Woody Allen’s Reveals The Title OF His Next Movie: Woody Allen‘s next film will be called… Blue Jasmine. The cast includes Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Sally Hawkins, and Michael Stuhlbarg. According to Vulture, this Woody Allen movie tells the story of a fashionable New York housewife. Yup, sounds about right. Source: Vulture

Vulture announced that Rogen has a guest-star appearance set for February 19. And, just in case you’re wondering, he’ll be Mindy’s Jewish childhood love. Also set to appear on the show: B.J. Novak, Eva Amurri and Allison Williams.

- Community TV Trailer: Community is on its way back. Next month the show will return into our giant TVs and fill our little hearts with so much joy once again. NBC dropped a new clip featuring footage from the season four premiere, which shows the Dean introducing some Hunger Games-style competition in the school’s cafeteria. It’s awesome! Check it out:
- Only God Forgives Teaser Trailer: We didn’t get to see a whole lot of Ryan Gosling last year. Gangster Squad was pushed out of 2012, and The Place Beyond The Pines got a 2013 release date. But this year is going to be filled with Gosling. Heck, he’s in theaters right now, shooting guns and seducing Emma Stone. Only God Forgives is another one of his movies that’ll most likely hit theaters this year. On Monday, a teaser trailer for the film hit the web. This film will mark the second collaboration between Gosling and director Nicolas Winding Refn. Only God Forgives tells the story of a Bangkok police lieutenant and a gangster who settle their differences in a Thai-boxing match. Check out the clip:
- Spring Breakers U.S. Teaser Poster: Spring Breakers is one of the movies that I am looking forward to the most. Not only because it’s coming from Harmony Korine, but because it’s got Disney stars like Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens acting wild and crazy in super skimpy bikinis. (This is the part where I feel like a total creep despite being a younger girl than Hudgens). Spring Breakers now has an official release date. It’ll hit New York and Los Angeles on March 22 (happy birthday to me!), followed by a nationwide release the week after. Now here’s a U.S. teaser poster for your entertainment. It’s totally freaky. Check it out:
That’s the end of our round-up for this week. Keep checking back at ScreenCrave for more entertainment news and features.
