Oh, what’s that? Jurassic World 2 doesn’t come out for another four months? You don’t want to hear about Jurassic World 3 yet? WELL, GUESS WHAT?!!!?!
Universal Pictures announced writers and a release date for Jurassic World 3 on Wednesday.
The sixth Jurassic Park movie will be written by Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim: Uprising) and Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) from a story by Derek Connolly (Jurassic World) and Trevorrow. Steven Spielberg will executive produce with Trevorrow.
Plot details are unknown although Trevorrow said it will serve as an ending to the Jurassic World trilogy. No director is currently attached.
Jurassic World was released in 2015 and grossed over $1.67 billion at the box office. It’s currently the fourth highest-grossing movie of all time behind Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. The film was directed by Tevorrow and scripted by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) before being rewritten by Connolly & Trevorrow.
Its first sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, is coming out June 22. Connolly and Trevorrow wrote the screenplay that was directed by J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls).
“It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive,” Trevorrow said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m thrilled with the tension and beauty J.A. has brought to Fallen Kingdom, and I know Emily will add another layer of emotion to the concluding chapter of our trilogy.”
The four Jurassic Park movies have grossed a combined $3.6 billion at the box office. The franchise has outgrossed all of Superman’s live-action box office appearances combined and all 13 Star Trek movies since its launch in 1993.
