It will mark the sixth film in the Universal Pictures ‘Jurassic Park’ franchise that was originally kicked off by ‘Jaws’ director Steven Spielberg. Trevorrow had previously directed the fourth film ‘Jurassic World.’
According to Slash Film, the shooting had a bit of trouble during the pandemic as lockdown policies caused the production to be shut down for four months.
“The blockbuster began lensing in February of 2020, then got shut down on March due to the pandemic, and thanks to a handy insurance loophole (no longer available for post-Covid productions) was able to resume shooting four months later with proper (and expensive) protocols in place,” they reported.
The dinosaur epic is now set for a June 10, 2022 release date. It features an ensemble cast of returning cast from across the six movies including Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Daniella Pineda, Isabella Sermon, Justice Smith, Omar Sy, and BD Wong.
Dern told People about the returning cast saying, “It was an amazing thing to join my original cast members and go down memory lane, from that experience in the beginning of a franchise through the whole course of these films together with all the key cast members who have been working on these movies, as well as [director] Colin Trevorrow and Steven Spielberg, who is like family to me.”
Steven Spielberg is joining the film as an executive producer.
