The long-awaited fourth installment of the iconic "Jurassic Park" franchise won't arrive in theaters until the summer of 2015, a year late due to production bugs.

Universal Studios announced "Jurassic World" on Tuesday. Originally scheduled for a 2014 opening, the film was pushed back a year due to production delays.

"Safety Not Guaranteed" director Colin Trevorrow will helm the project, which will be produced by Steven Spielberg, who directed the 1993 original and the 1997 sequel "The Lost World: Jurassic Park."

Derek Connolly, who wrote "Safety Not Guaranteed," is responsible for the screenplay. The film will be shot in 3D.

"The name Jurassic World obviously has different connotations than Jurassic Park, something that was included in all of the previous movies," Hypable's Andrew Sims wrote. "In the three Jurassic Park movies, dinosaurs existed within the parks, but the new title seems to suggest that they have roamed the entire earth."

The film is reportedly set on Isla Nublar – the same location as the original film – where there is a successful Jurassic Park theme park that attracts 10 million visitors each year.

Universal has a few big sequels coming out in summer 2015, including "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," "Star Wars: Episode VII," the "Man of Steel" sequel, and "Independence Day 2."

The original 1993 "Jurassic Park" blockbuster was based on a Michael Crichton novel and adopted by the author into a screenplay. The film, which starred Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, has grossed more than one billion dollars worldwide.

Lauded for its special effects, the movie won three Academy Awards, for sound mixing, sound editing and visual effects.

"Jurassic Park" was re-released in 3D on April 5, 2013 to celebrate its 20th Anniversary.
