As Henry Wu flew off while carrying the tech to enhance more genetic hybrid dinosaurs and also earning nearly $2 billion worldwide. Jurassic World 2 was an unstoppable T-Rex bound to happen.
Joining Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and rest of the Dino team will be Daniella Pineda, who is better known for her role on The Detour, will be cast in an (as of now) an unknown role: broken by Variety early this week.
Also joining the team is Toby Jones (below: left) of Marvels: Captain America Trilogy and Rafe Spall (below: right) best known for small roles in Hot Fuzz and Prometheus.
While chatting with Wired, director of Jurassic World Colin Trevorrow revealed that the Jurassic movies may be done with the idea of theme parks and even people getting chased by dinosaurs on an infamous island, as we have seen four times now.
“[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island. That’ll get old real fast,” commented Trevorrow.
Trevorrow also added that:
“this isn’t always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment. And when you look back at nuclear power, and how that started, the first instinct was to weaponize it, and later on we found it could be used for energy. And this isn’t something necessarily that was in the book but is a seed that I wanted to plant in this movie, is that might be able to grow in more of these movies if they decide to make more of them, is: what if this went open source? It’s almost like InGen is Mac, but what if PC gets their hand on it? What if there are 15 different entities around the world who can make a dinosaur?”
“There is room for this universe to expand,” he continued.
“I shouldn’t use the word ‘universe,’ because people will think we’re making a Jurassic World Universe—we’re not.”
Then when he chatted to fan podcast Jurassic Cast Podcast, he revealed the idea quitting the idea of Dinosaurs (just) chasing our poor cast around for 2+ hours:
“It will get to be a different kind of film,” Trevorrow said.
“The audience has given us permission to a certain extent to take this to the next level, and I don’t necessarily mean in scale, I feel very strongly that it’s not about more dinosaurs or bigger and better dinosaurs, it’s about using this as a starting point for a much larger story about our relationship with these animals and about animals in general and the dynamic created by bringing them back to life.”
Adding to even more news, it has been heard that Claire (Howard) will again face challenges in our sequel. Trevorrow said:
“Even though Claire is the one who evolves the most over the trilogy, it’s her story that mirrors this changing world, Owen has shit to deal with. The two of them opened Pandora’s Box in Jurassic World and each of them are responsible for different elements of it in different ways, and I think the way that these characters are connected to the circumstances of what’s happening, it’s different than the previous films. It’s not ‘let’s manufacture a way to get them somewhere.’ They’re embedded into it now in a way that as storytellers makes it much easier for us to keep them involved and doesn’t feel as contrived.”
Howard backed this up, chatting to E! she said:
“Claire is a different person now. The person she is at the end of the [first] movie is not the person she was in the beginning. Her armor of sorts was that white, pristine outfit with heels in a very corporate environment and stuff, and the chick at the end –- totally different.”
Finally, director JA Bayona, revealed the very first set image of JW2 as he sets out on his adventure:
Bayona, who is coming off ‘A Monster Calls’ will helm the much anticipated sequel which is due out for release on June 22, 2018.
