Sequels always up the ante in terms of story and visuals. So after the success of Jurassic World, it is safe to say that will happen tenfold in the sequel. While the rumor that the production budget for Jurassic World 2 ballooned up to $260 million was nothing more than hearsay, the film is expected to begin filming early next year. Although Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow won’t be there for the sequel, he will still be very much involved in guiding The Orphanage and The Impossible filmmaker J.A. Bayona as he takes his place directing the fifth installment of Universal’s Jurassic franchise. Now, Jurassic World writer Derek Connolly is dropping a few hints about what to expect in the sequel. Check out the story below.
Last week, A Monster Calls director J.A. Bayona confirmed that Jurassic World will become a trilogy and that Colin Trevorrow would still be very much a part of the creative process despite his obligations to other projects. Now, as far as sequels go, the film is going to get bigger. That’s not at all surprising. The first Jurassic World cost up to $150 million, and that’s not accounting for the marketing costs. Remember all those shameless production placements thrown into the actual film, like “Verizon Wireless Presents The Indominus Rex” or “Magaritaville?”
While the production budget is expected to go up, a new report says it’s expected to go way up. According to Bayona, the budget for the Jurassic World sequel would be $260 million, which would be a $110 million increase from the previous film. Check out the full story below.
Last year, Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World exceeded everyone’s wildest expectations by grossing $1.67 billion worldwide. As such, Universal Pictures announced that there would be a sequel. But with Trevorrow otherwise preoccupied with The Book Of Henry and Star Wars: Episode IX, the responsibility of directing the next Jurassic World would have to go to J.A. Bayona.
Bayona was named the director of the sequel a few months back, and while at the Toronto International Film Festival recently, the filmmaker confirmed that Jurassic World will be a direct sequel. See below for more on the story and who else will be involved in making the film.
With Jurassic World being the top grossing movie this year, Universal Pictures announcing that a sequel would follow did not come as a surprise. We know that film star Chris Prattis already signed on for multiple films, as is Bryce Dallas Howard. However, Colin Trevorrow is unlikely to return considering he is busy directing Book of Henry, and will move on to directing Star Wars: Episode IX right after. But the filmmaker did talk about how the sequel would expand on the idea of weaponizing dinosaurs for military purposes.
While the sequel is continuing to be developed, it seems that we will be getting more than just one Jurassic World sequel, in fact we will be getting a trilogy. More on the story below.
