Check out the first ‘Jurassic World 2’ photo as Geraldine Chaplin joins cast
The Jurassic World sequel is currently in production, filming in the United Kingdom, and now fans get a sneak peek with the film’s first photo and some casting news.
The Impossible and A Monster Calls filmmaker J.A. Bayona steps into the director’s chair after Colin Trevorrow exited to helm Star Wars 9.
Check out the pic at the bottom.
Bayona also tweeted news that Geraldine Chaplin, who has appeared in all three of his previous movies, has joined the cast.
Trevorrow and his co-writer Derek Connolly penned the script for the follow-up and Trevorrow is producing alongside Frank Marshall.
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are both back in the starring roles, with B.D. Wong confirmed as well to reprise his role from previous films.
Daniella Pineda has been cast as a “key role” and “one of the new female lead roles” though no real details have been released.
The JW2 will also include Toby Jones, Ted Levine, James Cromwell, Rafe Spall, and Justice Smith.
Bayona’s frequent cinematographer Óscar Faura is behind the camera, and Jurassic World composer Michael Giacchino is once again providing the music.
Jurassic World 2 is slated for release on June 22, 2018.
Bayona has promised something bigger and better.
“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.”
Howard confirmed Claire’s life after the first film is part of the story.
“That’s part of the story, that’s part of the journey,” the Pete’s Dragon star tells JoBlo.
“She definitely went through a lot and is permanently changed because of that. But she is also who she is. Chris [Pratt] and I are already having a lot of fun with that. We’re in that stage right now of figuring out the backstory and talking through all those beats, like everything that happened in between. That’s always such a fun time. You’re like, ‘No, she did that?! No way, he couldn’t have!’ It’s really, really fun, and then you step into the present moment and it becomes alive.”
