Colin Trevorrow worked closely with producer Steven Spielberg while directing 2015’s blockbuster Jurassic World, before turning over the reigns for the sequel to JA Bayona for this summer’s sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Now, Spielberg has told ‘Entertainment Weekly’ that Trevorrow has signed on officially to write and direct the third Jurassic World story”, which doesn’t yet have a title yet. Trevorrow was actually going to direct Fallen Kingdom, but stepped down to do Star Wars: Episode IX….only to drop out of that project during pre-production to be replaced by JJ Abrams.
Little is known yet about the plot of Jurassic World 3, but Jeff Goldblum dropped a hint earlier this week on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ that both himself and somebody else could return.
“There’s a trilogy, based on Jurassic World. Colin Trevorrow directed and wrote the first one. He wrote this one, which JA Bayona directed. I have a scene in front of a senatorial committee talking about dinosaurs. Then there’s going to be another one, which some people may or may not be in it. That’s all I can say.”
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be in cinemas on June 7, with the third film following on June 11, 2021.
