Like every other film on the planet, Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World: Dominion with Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum was shut down. But today Neill (Event Horizon) gave us all a quick update.
He tells Fitzy & Wippa: “We’ll start as soon as we can. We’re supposed to be in London but it’s a complete mess at the moment… We’re using the Bond stage to build these enormous sets in London. They’d like to use those, ideally, but if nothing is happening there, I don’t know when we can get started.”
He adds: “They got two weeks done. I was waiting in London for my stuff to start and then it became apparent it was going to close down in a day or two. I made it as far as Sydney … and got into the quarantine thing.”
Finally, he says: “Having been traumatized twice, it’s pretty hard to get [Grant] out of the dig. That’s going to be a plot point that they’ll have to get around.“
While the plot of Jurassic World 3 is under wraps, the last film began three years after the destruction of the theme park, with Owen and Claire returning to the island to save the dinosaurs from a volcano. They soon encounter terrifying new breeds of dinosaurs, while uncovering a conspiracy that threatens the entire planet.
The third entry will be directed once again by Colin Trevorrow from a script written by Emily Carmichael and Trevorrow based on a story by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow will executive produce, with producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley. Jurassic World 3 hits theaters on June 11, 2021.
But we’ll see about that…
