Jurassic World 2 will stomp into theaters in 2018 and production is slated to get underway in about six more months. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are set to return, while new director J.A. Bayona will take over director duty from Colin Trevorrow.
Bayona has been discussing the upcoming sequel lately, and recently informed the Spanish magazine El Pais Seminal that his installment is set to have one dino-sized budget.
According to our friends over at Scified:
"Notably, Bayona confirmed that the budget for the Jurassic World sequel would be 260 million dollars. This is a massive increase from Jurassic World's production of 150 million dollars. Bayonne did not give a specified reason for this large budgetary increase."
That's a lot of coin! One can only imagine what the extra $110-Million will be going towards. More Dinosaurs? Bigger actors? Increased special effects? For now, it is not known. However, the budgetary increase obviously shows that Universal has nothing but faith in another Jurassic World - and for good reason, given that the last movie grossed an impressive 1.67-Billion by the time it was finished its theatrical run.
What do you think, Infinite Earths fans?
Update: A reliable source over at Universal Studios has reached out to /Film and revealed that the budget of Jurassic World 2 has actually not officially been decided upon just yet.
