Despite the mixed reception of the latest installment, “Jurassic World Dominion,” released in 2022, Universal Pictures is not letting the dinosaurs go extinct from the big screens. The studio is preparing to bring new life to the adventures involving these giant lizards.
Indeed, Universal Pictures is actively working on a fresh installment in the Jurassic World series, and they have enlisted David Koepp to contribute as a writer. Koepp is renowned for penning the original Jurassic Park in 1993, a classic directed by Steven Spielberg, as well as its 1997 sequel, Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Given his exceptional grasp of these giant creature narratives, Koepp is poised to captivate audiences once again with his storytelling skills.
Let’s explore the specifics of Universal’s upcoming Jurassic World film, including its interesting title change and possible plot.
Upcoming Jurassic World Movie
Initially thought to be the fourth part of Jurassic World, the new project is taking a surprising turn. Universal Pictures is moving away from the well-known ‘Jurassic Park’ title, as confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter. Instead, they are creating an ambitious story under a new Jurassic World banner, suggesting not just a reboot but a completely fresh chapter for the franchise.
We’ve seen a dinosaur theme park, an island filled with prehistoric creatures, and a world where humans and these massive reptiles coexist. What’s next? With Universal Pictures leading the way, even dinosaurs reaching for the stars doesn’t seem too far-fetched.
Who is likely to be in the cast of the new ‘Jurassic World’ Movie
Called a ‘new Jurassic era,’ this project might say goodbye to familiar faces from the previous Jurassic World films. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard might not return, suggesting a complete reboot.
Even beloved original Jurassic Park cast members like Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern, who returned in 2022’s Dominion, may not be part of this cinematic evolution.
Do we have a release date for the new ‘Jurassic World’ Movie
With an almost complete script written by David Koepp, the project is still in its early stages. Notably, the director isn’t on board yet. However, ‘Jurassic’ mainstay Frank Marshall is set to produce the movie, alongside his partner Patrick Crowley. The legendary Steven Spielberg, through his company Amblin Entertainment, takes on the role of executive producer.
Despite the missing puzzle pieces, Universal Pictures is aiming for an exciting 2025 release date for the new Jurassic World movie.
With six movies in the franchise spanning over three decades and collectively grossing over USD 6 billion worldwide, this next installment in the Jurassic series could potentially redeem the box office performance after the failure of the last release in 2022.
The upcoming Jurassic World movie, often referred to as Jurassic World 4, is anticipated to hit theaters in 2025.
