We still have to wait until June 22nd to see J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which looks to be the scariest installment in the franchise to date. But it seems Universal has utmost confidence in its box office performance – and why wouldn’t they, with Jurassic World being a smash hit – as they’re already moving forward with another!
Variety is reporting that Jurassic World 3, which surely won’t actually be the official title, will be hitting theaters on June 11, 2021, three years after Fallen Kingdom.
Emily Carmichael will write the script with Colin Trevorrow. Steven Spielberg will of course return to executive produce, alongside Trevorrow.
“It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive,” says Trevorrow. “I’m thrilled with the tension and beauty J.A. has brought to ‘Fallen Kingdom,’ and I know Emily will add another layer of emotion to the concluding chapter of our trilogy.”
Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley also return as producers.
