Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are producing “Jurassic World,” which Universal will release on June 12, 2015.

The first three films in the “Jurassic” series have taken in $1.9 billion at the box office and this year’s 3D re-release of the original film, “Jurassic Park,” has brought in $114 million globally.

“Jurassic Park” was a bona fide blockbuster when it came out in 1993, bringing in $970 million worldwide. It topped another Spielberg film, “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,” to become the highest-grossing film at that time.

Two sequels followed, “The Lost World” in 1997 and “Jurassic Park 3″ in 2001.
