The Jurassic Park franchise isn’t extinct quite yet. As reported by multiple outlets, a new Jurassic World reboot is being developed at Universal, with Jurassic Park and The Lost World screenwriter David Koepp spearheading the project.
Meant to launch a new era for the franchise, the film will have a new storyline. Per Deadline, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are not expected to return from the recent Jurassic World trilogy, nor are the original trilogy’s Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum.
While no director has been attached to the currently untitled movie, Koepp will pen the screenplay. It will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg through Amblin Entertainment, with Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley serving as producers.
The most recent entry in the Jurassic Park franchise, 2022’s Jurassic World Dominion, saw the return of many of the original characters. Find out where it landed on our list of Jurassic Park movies ranked from best to worst.
