Universal Pictures has officially announced that a sequel to Jurassic World will hit the big screen on June 22, 2018.
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will reprise their roles as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing, respectively.
Director Colin Trevorrow is passing on directorial chores this time and will write the screenplay with writing partner Derek Connolly. “Jurassic Park is like Star Wars. Different directors can give a different taste to each movie,” Trevorrow said before the release of Jurassic World when asked if he would get behind the camera again for the next film. “I would be involved in some way, but not as director.” Steven Spielberg is executive producer.
Earlier this week Jurassic World passed Marvel's Avengers to become the third highest-grossing movie of all time, behind James Cameron's Avatar and Titanic. The movie is available for pre-order on Blu-ray disc.
The sequel could develop the Ingen weaponisation subplot in Jurassic World into Jurassic War. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
