We’re still four months out from the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, so it remains to be seen whether the second film in this trilogy-within-the Jurassic Park series will be as mighty of a box-office force as the first. But, whether out of confidence or sheer franchise inertia, Universal Pictures has already set a release date for Jurassic World 3.
That’ll be on June 11, 2021, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which also says that Pacific Rim: Uprising writer Emily Carmichael has been hired to script the film alongside Colin Trevorrow, based on a story cooked up by Trevorrow and his writing partner Derek Connolly. Naturally, no plot details have been released as of yet. But in a statement, Trevorrow says, “It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive. I’m thrilled with the tension and beauty J.A. has brought to Fallen Kingdom, and I know Emily will add another layer of emotion to the concluding chapter of our trilogy.”
