Cue another Ian Malcolm quote: "Well, there it is."
As we detailed a few weeks ago, a new Jurassic World film is in development. This one will be helmed by David Koepp, who wrote the first two Jurassic Park films.
Things are evolving fast (pun intended), as Universal has slated the sequel for July 4th Weekend 2025. David Leitch, whose upcoming The Fall Guy kicks off the summer movie season, is in talks to direct. He's no stranger to sequels and spin-offs, having helmed Deadpool 2 and the Fast & Furious-adjacent Hobbs & Shaw.
The studio hopes the film will take another big chomp out of the box office. Each of the three previous entries topped $1 billion globally.
The still untitled Jurassic World sequel - which will supposedly launch a new storyline - opens July 2, 2025.
