Jurassic World was a stomping, roaring success at the boxoffice with current estimated gross worldwide hovering around US$1.5 billion, surpassing even Age of Ultron and bittersweet crowd pleaser Furious 7.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that Universal is all too happy to go for one more. The sequel will be starring Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Bryce Dallas Howard again, and set to come back in the cinemas on 22 June 2018.

The movie does not have an official title yet, but the Hollywood Reporter states that Steven Spielberg will be back as executive producer and Frank Marshall will be the producer.

Apart from that, we do know that Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) will be writing the script with Derek Connolly (Safety Not Guaranteed) for the sequel. He is not directing the sequel as he is expressing interest in doing other projects. One of the rumoured titles that he might be working on is Star Wars: Episode XI.

One does wonder why on Earth the characters would want to go back and face the dinosaurs again. Will Bryce Dallas Howard able to outrun the dinosaurs on high heels again? Or a six barreled, rotating M134 minigun miss a 20 meter long dinosaur running on open terrain again? Whatever it is, the script has got to be damn solid to convince the main characters to head back to Isla Nublar again which by that time, could be overrun with massive vegetation and wild roaming dinosaurs. Some of the dinosaurs are hybrids too.

The possibilities are endless as long it makes money.
