With “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” coming out in theaters this summer, Universal has announced a third installment of the series, set to be released on June 11, 2021.
Colin Trevorrow, who directed the first “Jurassic World,” will write the script with newcomer Emily Carmichael, which will be based off a story written by Trevorrow and his writing partner, Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley will return to produce, with Trevorrow and Steven Spielberg once again attached as executive producers.
“It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive,” says Trevorrow. “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.”
Carmichael was hired by Amblin in 2016 to write and direct the family action-adventure “Powerhouse.” She co-wrote the upcoming “Pacific Rim Uprising,” and most recently, Carmichael rewrote the planned remake of “The Black Hole” for Disney and director Joseph Kosinski.
Released in 2015, “Jurassic World” became one of the highest grossing movies ever made, currently ranked fourth on the all-time box office charts with $1.67 billion grossed worldwide. “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” the second installment in the “World” series and the fifth film in the “Jurassic Park” franchise, is directed by J.A. Bayona and will hit theaters June 22.
Trevorrow is repped by Verve and 3Arts. Carmichael is repped by Verve and Writ Large.
