Kathleen Kennedy, who was recently named President of Lucasfilms, will officially depart the JURASSIC PARK franchise for its fourth outing.

Kennedy, who had produced all of the other films in Steven Spielberg's dinosaur saga, will instead focus on moving the STAR WARS series forward.

Her husband and fellow producer, Frank Marshall, Tweeted today: "@LeDoctor: Ms. Kennedy has moved onto Star Wars and will not be producingJP4. She's traded raptors for TIE fighters."

Marshall, however, will be producing the film alongside Spielberg. RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES' Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver wrote the script. As of the now, the fourth film in the franchise is eyeing a June 13, 2014 release, though no director or cast is attached to project.

The first film, released originally in 1993, is set for a 3D release on April 5, where Steven Spielberg will introduce the three-time Academy Award-winning blockbuster to a new generation of moviegoers and allow longtime fans to experience the world he envisioned in a way that was unimaginable during the film's original release. Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern , Jeff Goldblum , Samuel L. Jackson and Richard Attenborough , the film based on the novel by Michael Crichton is produced byKathleen Kennedy and Gerald R. Molen .
