“Jurassic World” smashed box-office records in 2015, becoming the fourth highest-grossing film of all time with $1.67 billion, and quickly earning a green light for a sequel. With anticipation building for a return to Isla Nublar, the sequel’s director reveals cameras will roll in March.
Speaking with ComingSoon, Juan Antonio Bayona (“The Orphanage,” “The Impossible”) characterized “Jurassic World 2” as a collaborative process with Colin Trevorrow, who directed the original and co-wrote the sequel, and producers Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall.
“It’s their baby as much as it is mine,” he said. “It’s about sharing views and working together to bring the story to life. But, at the same time, the way I face telling a story is to find something very personal. I think there will be plenty of myself also in the film.”
Trevorrow previously revealed the story for the sequel was inspired by quote in “Jurassic Park” by Dr. Alan Grant, played by Sam Neil: “Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by 65 million years of evolution have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea what to expect?”
No one knows exactly what that means yet, but it seems to run parallel with what the world of “Jurassic Park” world was based on — dinosaurs and humans coming into contact with each other.
Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Toby Jones and Rare Spall, “Jurassic World 2” is planned for release on June 22, 2018.
