“Jurassic World 2” may not hit theaters until next year, but that hasn’t stopped Chris Pratt from teasing a “scarier” and “darker” sequel.
While promoting “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” the actor couldn’t help but compliment the sequel’s director J.A. Bayona. “Do you know that filmmaker? He’s a remarkable filmmaker. If you haven’t seen ‘The Impossible’ or ‘A Monster Calls,’ I mean he’s really visually masterful,” Pratt told ScreenRant and other reporters.
“Deep emotions and suspense,” he added, describing the sequel. “I think it’s going to be a scarier version. A little bit darker and will continue to expand and carry the story forward in a way that is really unexpected and you wouldn’t have imagined.” However, Pratt didn’t elaborate on how the sequel will present an overall darker vibe, and the film’s plot details are being kept under wraps for now.
“Jurassic World 2” has dinosaur-sized shoes to fill after the success of the first “Jurassic World,” which earned $1.6 billion worldwide. In the sequel, Pratt will reprise his role as Owen Grady, a velociraptor trainer and researcher.
“Jurassic World 2” is by written by “Jurassic World” director Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. The film stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Howard, along with newcomers Ted Levine, Justice Smith and Geraldine Chaplin. “Jurassic World 2” is expected to arrive in theaters on June 22, 2018.
