Information on the progress of Universal’s “Jurassic World” has been sparse as of late. Now, director Colin Trevorrow has posted on his Twitter account some great news revealing the next dinosaur laden installment will occur in real-time. The film will take place 22 years after the events in the original “Jurassic Park.” Check out the tweet!
@pfcbains916 Reboot is a strong word. This is a new sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of Jurassic Park.
No logline on the film has been released. However, rumor has it, Jurassic Park is a functioning amusement park with 10 million visitors a year. One of the park’s attractions is a Sea World type of lagoon, which will feature the franchise’s first underwater dinosaurs. Could one of these be a Megalodon?
“Jurassic World” is slated for a June 12, 2015 release. The action/adventure/sci-fi film will star Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt (rumored,) Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, David Oyelowo (rumored) and Ty Simpkins. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver wrote the early screenplay, while Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly completed the final script based on characters created by the late Michael Crichton. Patrick Crowley, Thomas Tull and Frank Marshall will produce, while Steven Spielberg will be the executive producer. Colin Trevorrow directs.
