Hold the phone! Jurassic World set to be a trilogy?!
Well, no-one saw that coming. Cough.
We’ve known for a while that The Orphanage’s director, Juan Antonio Bayona, was set to direct the sequel to last year’s successful dino-romp/sequel.
Recently the director was asked how the prep for the movie – his first big studio outing – was going and he dropped some interesting news, revealling that it was to be part two of a three-part tale: “It’s very interesting. The whole ‘Jurassic World’ is a trilogy that Colin Trevorrow has envisioned. We’re writing the second chapter, and it’s very interesting where he’s leading the story. I grew up watching Steven Spielberg movies and I love those movies and the legacy, so it’s a question of being truthful to the legacy and at the same time, bringing new stuff that people will appreciate. We are still six months ahead of shooting, and so far, so good. It’s very exciting right now.”
So there you have it, it seems the park is very much open… and will be for a while.
The Jurassic World sequel is due on June 22nd, 2018.
