Universal Pictures has selected June 11, 2021 as the release date for Jurassic World 3, the third movie in the new Jurassic Park film franchise.
Colin Trevorrow -- director of 2015's Jurassic World and co-writer of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom -- will return to team with Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim Uprising) on the script.
“It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive,” Trevorrow told The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m thrilled with the tension and beauty J.A. has brought to Fallen Kingdom, and I know Emily will add another layer of emotion to the concluding chapter of our trilogy.”
Back in November, Trevorrow alluded to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom setting up third Jurassic World film. “At the end of this movie, it’s not a cliffhanger, but it’s designed for people to want to know what’s going to happen next, whereas the earlier Jurassic Park movies had pretty clear definitive endings. They were much more episodic,” he explained in an interview with Sebas Tabany. “In working with Derek Connolly, my co-writer, we were also thinking about where it was gonna go in the future.”
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is directed by J.A. Bayona from a script by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, and stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, B.D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Ted Levine, Geraldine Chaplin, James Cromwell and Jeff Goldblum. The film arrives June 22, 2018.
