I hope you like dinosaurs because we are about to get a lot more of them. Like in 2021! Almost four months before Universal unleashes Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, directed by J.A. Bayona, the studio is making plans for a third installment of the rebooted dinosaur adventure movie series.
Emily Carmichael will pen the script along with Colin Trevorrow, director of the 2015 reboot and co-writer of ‘Fallen Kingdom.’
The studio has set a June 11, 2021, release date for the movie.
Trevorrow is returning to executive produce the new chapter along with Steven Spielberg, the filmmaker behind the original movies in the 1990s.
Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are returning as producers. Plot details are being kept locked in a canister, but Carmichael and Trevorrow will work from a story concocted by Trevorrow and writer partner Derek Connolly. Carmichael co-wrote the upcoming Pacific Rim Uprising and most recently rewrote The Black Hole for Disney and director Joseph Kosinski. Carmichael came to Spielberg’s attention when she set up the family action-adventure Powerhouse at Amblin Entertainment.
Fallen Kingdom is set to open June 22.
