The summer of 2015 saw Director Colin Trevorrow's long awaited JURASSIC WORLD hit theaters to an amazing response. It quickly become the third highest grossing film in history. The fact that the resurrected franchise performed so well meant only one thing, that we will once again be seeing the Dinosaurs return to the big screen.
Earlier on this year it was made known to the world that Juan Antonio Bayona would be the director of JURASSIC WORLD 2. The script was penned by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.
At this point there is still no official title for JURASSIC WORLD 2.
Director J.A. Bayona recently spoke to The Playlist about the upcoming film saying:
"After doing THE IMPOSSIBLE and A MONSTER CALLS I said, ‘I want to have fun now.’ So, let’s do a dinosaur film with Spielberg. It’s great, but at the same time it’s massive and way bigger than [the last] one.
I think what is tricky about doing the fifth movie of a franchise is how will you bring in new stuff and still pay tribute to what we all know and the legacy of the film. So, it’s the balance between the new stuff and the old stuff. I think Colin did a great job in the first one finding the balance between what people are expecting and what people are being again. I was kind of surprised when he pitched me the story because it leads the story to a place that we’ve never seen before and it brings some of the most important elements from the other films and makes something with them. I thought that was very interesting. It’s the second chapter of a trilogy so it gets the story to a place that wants you leaving more and more."
JURASSIC WORLD 2 stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Rafe Spall, Toby Jones, and Justice Smith.
With shooting set to begin in England during the Spring, JURASSIC WORLD 2 which is scheduled to hit theaters on June 22, 2018.
