Though actor Chris Pratt, director Colin Trevorrow and even producer Steven Spielberg have been out there pushing the promo train for “Jurassic World,” one person who hasn’t gone on the record much about it is one of the biggest key players behind-the-scenes – producer Frank Marshall.
Now, in a new and exclusive interview with Collider, Marshall spoke briefly about two upcoming projects he’s scheduled to film later this year. First up, he was asked about how the film adaptation of the “Assassin’s Creed” game franchise is coming along, Marshall says:
“It’s going great… the movie’s going to be different from the game but the same [laughs]. That’s about all I can say. We’re starting [filming] this fall, probably September. We’re all going to be in London. I’m going to be there for Bourne and Assassin’s and Kathy [Kennedy] is going to be there for Star Wars, so it’s going to be one big happy family in London this fall.”
As for the next film in the Jason Bourne franchise, the one which sees the reunion of director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon, Marshall says they’ve taken their time on it to make sure it is done right:
“Working with Paul again and Matt [Damon] and getting the team back together is kind of a dream. We’re in pre-production, the script’s there, we’re going to start casting soon, we’re looking at locations, it’s all going very well… we have spent a long time on the script development and pre-production and that’s all going very well and we’re not gonna have a race to the finish line. It’s going to hopefully be a slow walk this time.”
Marshall was also asked about a sequel to “Jurassic World” but indicated there’s no actual movement on it so far.
