The next installment in the Jurassic Park series, the sequel of Jurassic World, currently going under the working title of Ancient Futures, will start filming early next year. Replacing Colin Trevorrow in the director’s chair will be Juan Antonio Bayona. Expect more dinosaurs to show up, though, as the early suggestion is that this film will be far more expensive than the last one.
Juan Antonio Bayona revealed in an interview to a Spanish magazine El Pais Seminal that the working budget for Jurassic World 2 is $260m, which is an upgrade from the $150m reportedly spent on Jurassic World. The extra $110m surely suggest improvement and some spectacular effects that we are going to see. The total is already more than four times the price of the first movie in the franchise.
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be leading the cast once again, and the story picks up after the events that transpired in the last movie. The shooting for Jurassic World 2 will start in February, and the release is expected on June 22nd 2018. Bayona also confirmed that the film already has a title, but that is to be revealed on a later date.
