Earlier today we learned that the Jurassic World sequel – working title: Ancient Futures – will begin production on February 27th, 2017 in Hawaii. While we are unsure of the plot, the production team is hard at work prepping the film for production, as confirmed by producer Frank Marshall who recently spoke with Collider’s Steve Weintraub:
“We’re in pre-production. In fact I just got back from London meeting with Juan Antonio and the production designer, we’re designing, he’s doing storyboards. We’re in full-boar pre-production to start shooting sometime early next Spring.”
“As a director Bayona has his input, but Colin and Derek are writing the script. So there have been numerous meetings, and we have the template for the movie. Of course he’s putting in his own ideas and taking ownership of it, but it’s pretty much the original story they came up with.”
“We set the bar pretty high. For me, it’s always about story. As long as the action sequences move the story forward, that’s what’s important. I think we’re just having to look and see how we can involve the characters in the story with whatever dinosaurs we have in the action sequences. It’s a challenge, but it’s a healthy challenge.”
We now know that the sequel will feature the islands in some way or another, and it’s good to hear that pre-production is in full swing. Be sure to let us know in the comments section below what you’d like to see in the movie!
