Jurassic World 2 kicks off production on February 27th in Hawaii. While that may be more than half a year away, producer Frank Marshall recently sat down with Collider to reveal that the highly anticipated sequel has already entered full-boar pre-production so as to be ready to start filming next Spring.
“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.”
Starring returning stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, Jurassic World 2 will roar into theatres on June 22, 2018 with director Juan Antonio Bayona at the helm.
