‘Jurassic World’ Is Getting a Sequel
Life finds a way — and so do movie studios.
Just as Jurassic World becomes the third biggest movie of all time, Universal Pictures has announced that a sequel to the dinosaur blockbuster is currently in the works. Slated to be released on June 22, 2018, the film will be the fifth installment in the overarching Jurassic Park series.
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will both reprise their respective roles as Velociraptors wrangler Owen Grady and Jurassic World park operations manager Claire Dearing. Though no other returning stars have been announced, World director Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, who did the script rewrite, will pen the follow-up.
Trevorrow will not return as a director, but will act as an executive producer. Steven Spielberg will return to executive produce and Frank Marshall to produce.
Jurassic World, which opened in theaters in June, has made $614.3 million at the domestic box office. It has earned $1.5 billion worldwide to date.
