What happens when a movie becomes the biggest summer blockbuster of the year? It gets a sequel, of course. Variety is reporting that Universal is moving forward with a sequel to Jurassic World, with the movie currently slated for release on June 22nd, 2018. Stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are reportedly set to return, as well.
What happens when you write the biggest summer blockbuster of the year? You come back for that sequel. According to The Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit, writer-director Colin Trevorrow and his writing partner Derek Connolly are writing the script for the new installment. If they follow the same path as their previous installment, we expect to see some sort of meta-commentary about making sequels, even though it's kinda wrong and gross and corporations made them do it. But hey: dinosaurs!
