Despite Jurassic World Dominion being truly terribleit did not kill the Jurassic franchise. David Koepp, the writer of Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park and The Lost Worldis currently working on a brand new Jurassic World film that’s being referred to as the start of a “new Jurassic era.”
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news of the film—which apparently is so far along, a 2025 release date is not yet off the table. There’s no director attached but Frank Marshall, one of the producers of the original, is on board.
Nothing is public about who or what will star in the film, but the fact it’s reportedly starting a new era probably rules out stars like Chris Pratt or Bryce Dallas Howard. At least to start. We said the same thing about 2015’s Jurassic World and the original film stars.
That Universal is referring to it as “Jurassic World” though does seem to suggest it could be in the same continuity, or simply will be set in the wider world the final film created, and not just in a park.
We will keep an eye on this moving ahead but, tell us below, what do you think? Is it time to go back to the Jurassic franchise?
