With fans wanting an update for anything dealing with “Jurassic Park IV,” director Colin Trevorrow is out scouting locations in Hawaii. He took to his Twitter account and posted this photo of a familiar looking ‘Isla Nublar’ location. Does this bring back some memories?

So, where and what is Isla Nublar?

Isla Nublar is a fictional remote island about 120 miles (190 km) off the west coast of Costa Rica, which is only 87 miles away from Isla Sorna (“Jurassic Park: The Lost World,” “Jurassic Park III.”)

The island was intended to be the site of Jurassic Park.  It was to be a tourist attraction featuring living biological dinosaurs cloned from prehistoric DNA.  The park was controlled from the Visitor Center. The sequence of disasters that led to the closing of Jurassic Park is nicknamed the Isla Nublar Incident.

“Jurassic Park IV” is due in theaters on June 13, 2014. No actors have been cast at this time. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”) wrote the screenplay based on characters created by Michael Crichton. Patrick Crowley and Frank Marshall are producing, while Steven Spielberg will serve as executive producer. Colin Trevorrow directs.
