Universal has already marked out a June 22nd 2018 release date for the “Jurassic World” follow-up, and now a new report has indicated when the dinosaur sequel will begin filming.
Jurassic Outpost says that the Juan Antonio Bayona-helmed film is currently targeting a February 27th 2017 start of production in Hawaii and is going by the code name of “Ancient Futures”.
Part of the film is also expected to be shot at London’s Pinewood Studios so it’s unclear if the Hawaii leg of the shoot is before or after the UK stint. Most likely it’s the kickoff though as the date falls in line with comments from producer Frank Marshall who recently confirmed pre-production is in full swing on the film with shooting to begin “sometime early next Spring.”
Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly are penning the script for the film in which Bayona has had input. At last report the plan was to see what happens when the science behind these dino theme parks becomes more ubiquitous and is being used (and abused) by a variety of companies.
