It’s official! The sequel “Jurassic World” is a go. Fans of the first three dinosaur films are excited that they will be transported back into the late author Michael Crichton’s fictitious world where man is not at the top of the food chain. The film began production on April 14th at a secret location in Hawaii. There have been no leaks from cast or crew members, but director Colin Trevorrow (“Safety Not Guaranteed”) had this to say.
“Yesterday I was under a construction crane with Chris Pratt, covered with dirt, eyeballing the exact height of the dinosaur trying to kill him. We both cracked up laughing. Sometimes you just have to stop and let the joy take over.”
“Jurassic World” is scheduled to be released in 3D on June 12, 2015. The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, B.D. Wong, Katie McGrath, Lauren Lapkus and Ty Simpkins. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver wrote an early version of the screenplay, while Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly wrote the current screenplay based on characters created by Michael Crichton. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are producing, while Universal executives Peter Cramer and Sara Scott will oversee the project for the studio. Colin Trevorrow (“Safety Not Guaranteed”) directs.
