Previously, we had reported on the confirmation of Jurassic World 3‘s production in conjunction with the reveal of the Indoraptor. We knew the project was not yet given an official title, and the only (main) staff announcements circulating around Jurassic World 3 were confirmations of Emily Carmichael and Colin Trevorrow–the director of Jurassic World— as the writers.
While an official title has still yet to be released, it’s been announced by Entertainment Weekly that Colin Trevorrow will be the designated director for Jurassic World 3.
EW broke the news when speaking with Steven Spielberg, followed by this statement from Trevorrow:
“It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive. 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.”
In addition to writing the film with Carmichael, Spielberg and Trevorrow will be executive producers of the film, accompanied by Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley as producers.
While nothing concrete has been confirmed for the casting choices, what dinosaurs will be featured in the next film, or if it’s even going to be officially called Jurassic World 3; it’s been confirmed the film will come out on June 21st of 2021.
In the mean time, Universal will be pairing with Frontier Development to produce the Jurassic World Evolution. The project is a park building simulator where players will be able to bio-engineer their own dinosaurs and construct a customized Jurassic World (Park).
The game is presented as a spiritual successor to Blue Tongue Entertainment’s Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis from 2003. Those interested can preorder Jurassic World Evolution for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
