The Jurassic World sequel was confirmed last summer, and is set to release in cinemas in 2018. Whilst Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be reprising their previous roles, director J A Bayona will this time be heading development, whilst previous director Colin Trevorrow (in collaboration with Derek Connolly) will be behind the sequel’s script. Steven Spielberg is also involved on the project as executive producer.
As reported by Den of Geek, the film’s search for crew members is on, but a few more details have also arisen surrounding the highly anticipated follow-up.
Firstly, it’s been discovered that a portion of the film will be shot in Britain. This will mean that it will have access to UK studios and facilities, but not necessarily that the sequel will be set in Britain.
It was also uncovered that the film is now operating under the working title Ancient Futures. Whilst the name won’t at all reflect the title of the final product, it’s certainly a sign of progress as fans eagerly await a second dose of nostalgia in two years time. The film is scheduled to release on June 22 2018.
In other Jurassic World news, toy manufacturer Mattel have recently been awarded with a license to create a range of products inspired by the popular franchise. They’re expected to hit shelves in 2018.
