Colin Trevorrow is confirmed to be not just writing but also directing the third installment in the “Jurassic World” franchise for Universal Pictures.
Trevorrow and Derek Connolly co-wrote 2015’s “Jurassic World” which Trevorrow directed. The pair also wrote this year’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” but J.A. Bayona took over as director on that project.
Now Trevorrow returns to helm the third film which aims to be the “concluding chapter” of the trilogy and will work with “Pacific Rim: Uprising” scribe Emily Carmichael on the script which is based on a story he created with Connolly.
Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley will also be back as producers, and Steven Spielberg will be back as executive producer. Spielberg himself revealed the news to EW this morning.
“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” is due in cinemas June 22nd. No word on a release date for the third one though judging by their release pattern it’s likely a Summer 2021 release.
