Recommended Posts

Deadline has officially confirmed that Universal is developing a brand new Jurassic World movie, which will serve as a complete reboot of the franchise. The screenplay for this exciting project will be written by David Koepp, the original screenwriter of Jurassic Park.

This upcoming film will offer a new perspective on the Jurassic era, with a new cast.  Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard from Jurassic World, nor Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neill, who were part of the original trilogy will be returning to reprise their roles.

Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley will produce the movie.  Through his production company Amblin Entertainment, Steven Spielberg will serve as the executive producer.

Why? They ran out ideas for the original continuity?

If you are digging into the pit of bad ideas, why not a prequel? Turns out there was park before and it was covered up because the same things went wrong...set the movie in the 60's or 70's. Get Mark Wahlberg "How'd these lizards get like this?"

Why???

OK.  Here's a thought:  make a Jurassic Park movie as if it had been done by Ray Harryhausen!  Let Phil Tippet go-motion nuts on it!  Set it in the 50s, 60s or 70s with the then-popular tail-dragging dinosaurs!

I would be down for this if it sticks closer to the novel , don’t get me wrong I love the original movie but that said the it should of been a r rated if it was closer to the book , I get why they changed it up one the book has a lot of exposition and way more gore , and B, they wanted kiddies to enjoy the first movie with still having some high tension scenes

Terrible, why? do something new, or just keep making sequels that get increasingly sillier, don't reboot Jurassic Park, the first film is one of the best films ever, we don't need to draw over it, it's iconic, a reboot just seems like a poor idea, nobody wants a reboot.

but like others have said if you are gonna reboot it, follow the book closer, make it darker and more a horror film, I could maybe get behind that, If it's just a fun re-do of the first film it's going to stink I can bet that, because it's going to have all of the 2020 humour, CGI that just looks meh for some reason (why did CGI seem to get worse?) and some whatever actors.

According to Deadline, David Leitch is currently in early discussions to direct the upcoming installment of the highly successful franchise. Scheduled to be released on July 2, 2025, this new film will offer a fresh perspective on the Jurassic era. However, fans should not expect to see familiar faces such as Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neill from the previous movies.

The movie will be brought by the executive production of Steven Spielberg through Amblin Entertainment, with Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley serving as producers. Additionally, David Leitch and Kelly McCormick will also produce through their company 87North. Overseeing the project for the Studio will be Sara Scott, the Executive Vice President of Production Development, and Jacqueline Garell, the Creative Executive of Production Development.

Damn, I read that first as David Lynch. Now I'm disappointed. 

So a movie where all the dinosaurs exist in a dream but dreams are the only true reality because what is reality anyway if not a Stegosaurus dreaming?

Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment are currently in the final stages of negotiations with Gareth Edwards, the director of Rogue One, to take the helm of a brand new Jurassic World film.

Edwards spent the entire last week meeting with executives and his impressive meetings with Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall, the producers who kickstarted the franchise in the 90s, led to a quick offer. Once the deal is finalized, pre-production will kick into high gear as the studio has already set a release date for July 2, 2025.
