“Jurassic World 3” has a title, according to an image shared by the film’s director Colin Trevorrow on the first day of shooting.
The third film in the franchise will be called “Jurassic World: Dominion.” Universal confirmed the title on Tuesday.
Production on the film began on Monday, with Trevorrow sliding back into the director’s chair after directing the first massive blockbuster in the rebooted franchise from 2015. J.A. Bayona took over directing duties for 2018’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.”
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return for the film that will also reunite them with some of the stars from the original “Jurassic Park,” including Oscar-winner Laura Dern, Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum. Also among the cast are Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, BD Wong, Justice Smith, Scott Haze and Mamoudou Athie.
Trevorrow will write the script for “Jurassic World: Dominion” 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.
Released in 2015, “Jurassic World” became one of the highest-grossing movies ever made, currently ranked sixth 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, made $1.3 billion worldwide.
Universal previously dated “Jurassic World: Dominion” for release on June 11, 2021. Check out Trevorrow’s image below:
