Much like the dinosaurs in the Jurassic Park franchise, it seems like the Jurassic Park franchise itself will never actually go extinct.
After Jurassic Worldgrossed more than $1.5 billion worldwide, it was announced a sequel starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard would be released in 2018. The people who make tentpole blockbusters are better at planning ahead than anyone else, it seems — and it’s been revealed that there’s more coming our way. During a roundtable interview at The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley said that we’re not just getting one Jurassic World sequel — we’re getting two.
Director "Colin Trevorrow is busy working on an outline. He's been working with Steven [Spielberg]. And they have an idea for the next two movies, actually. It was designed as a trilogy, unbeknownst to us. It's a happy surprise."
Twice as many CGI dinosaurs for us, twice as much money for Universal Pictures. Everybody wins!
