USA TODAY - Dinosaur fear has a name and a date.

Steven Spielberg brings his long-awaited next installment of the Jurassic Park series to theaters June 12, 2015. It also has a name -- Jurassic World -- Universal Pictures announced on Tuesday.

Colin Trevorrow has been tapped to direct the epic action-adventure from a draft of the screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. It will be shot in 3-D.

The filmmakers have already promised new dinosaur villains for the fourth installment of the franchise. The first three films in the series have taken in $1.9 billion at the box office.

Earlier this year, a 3-D re-release of the original 1993 Jurassic Park inspired a return to the dinosaur madness of decades past and brought in $114 million globally.

The news comes the same day that Disney studios announced that Pirates of the Caribbean 5 would move off the summer 2015 calendar and be released in 2016.
