‘Jurassic World 2’ set for 2018, dinosaurs unleashed on the earth

Jurassic World dominated the box office, becoming the third largest grossing movie of all time after a record breaking opening. Universal Pictures has announced that a Jurassic World sequel will hit theaters in 2018 with star Chris Pratt confirmed to return.

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has said that he won’t be back in the director’s chair, but is attached to write screenplay for the sequel with his writing partner Derek Connolly.

Chris Pratt is already signed on for Jurassic World sequels, as is Bryce Dallas Howard.

Trevorrow said about how this film, Jurassic World, might set up the future of the series “ It’s somewhat a plot based setup for the future. And that matters to a certain extent. But if we hadn’t done that, you could easily manufacture that. You know, in a second film. So I find it actually the least functional setup for the future of everything that we do.”

In the same way that we exist with animals now. And  imagine a world where just like, you know, don’t go into that jungle, there’s tigers in there. They’re gonna eat you. Just replace that with raptors. And I think we set up ideas in here. One of them, the one we address the most is the weaponization of dinosaurs and the fact that animals have been used in war for centuries. And there are people with completely bonkers ideas that are always gonna step in and wonder how else we can utilize a new technology.”

He also alluded to a plot which audiences may not have picked up after the final edits were done.

But there was a line where Doctor Wu says to Irrfan Khan or B.D. Wong says to Irrfan Khan, you know, how long do you think you’re gonna be able to control her? We won’t always be the only ones who can make a dinosaur. And that idea to me has a lot of potential in it that like nuclear power there could be a something that goes open source and there could be many entities who might have this ability to create these things and use them for various needs and purposes. So there’s potential in there. For something.”

Steven Spielberg will executive produce through his Amblin Entertainment banner.

Universal Pictures has set the Jurassic Park 5, or Jurassic World 2 (unnamed film) for June 22nd 2018.
