Although we are still four months away from the releasing of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, directed by J.A. Bayona, Universal Studios has announced that they already are in the planning stages for the third installment of the rebooted Steven Spielberg dinosaur series.
Jurassic World 3 will be penned by Emily Carmichael along with Colin Trevorrow, director of the 2015 reboot and co-writer of Fallen Kingdom.
Trevorrow is returning to executive produce the new chapter along with film legend Steven Spielberg. Currently, Universal is aiming for a release date of June 11, 2021.
Although plot details are currently being kept under wraps, Trevorrow was for the news of the release date and principal directing and writing cast to be made public. He said in a statement Wednesday,
“It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive. 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.”
Jurassic World holds the third-best opening of all time, earning $208 million at the domestic box office and grossing an overall $1.6 billion worldwide.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is set to open June 22.
