Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is set for release on June 22nd 2018, following the success of Colin Trevorrow’s 2015 film, Jurassic World. We still have four months to wait until the latest addition to the franchise hits cinemas, but it seems as though Universal Pictures are full of confidence when it comes to their dinosaur blockbuster, as the third instalment to the series is already penned into their release schedule.
Today, Variety are reporting that Jurassic World 3 is slated for release less than three years after Fallen Kingdom, with the film set to appear on our screens as early as June 11th 2021. Of course, given the logistical nightmare that making a big-budget blockbuster can be, theatrical release dates are always subject to change, but the fact that Universal are planning so far in advance is encouraging ahead of Fallen Kingdom.
Jurassic World 3 is likely a working title, with any accompanying phrase or tagline perhaps being held back until the second instalment hits theatres this summer. Pacific Rim Uprising co-writer Emily Carmichael will pen the script together with Colin Trevorrow, and Steven Spielberg will once again be involved as an executive producer.
Trevorrow has also inadvertently revealed that Jurassic World 3 could be the final film in the current series, stating:
“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.” (via Variety)
