Fans are eagerly awaiting the theatrical release of J.A. Bayona's Jurassic World sequel and, while plot details surrounding the project are being kept tightly under wraps, the director is more than willing to discuss his thoughts on tackling the iconic franchise.
Speaking with Coming Soon, Bayona shared: "Every story is different and you need to find the depth of every story and try to express it on the screen,” says Bayona. “The ‘Jurassic World’ sequel is a more collaborative filmmaker experience, not only with Colin Trevorrow, but also with Steven [Spielberg] and with Frank Marshall. It’s their baby as much as it is mine. It’s about sharing views and working together to bring the story to life. But, at the same time, the way I face telling a story is to find something very personal. I think there will be plenty of myself also in the film.”He also revealed when shooting on the highly anticipated sequel will be kicking off.
“We’re working it already,” Bayona continued, “and shooting starts in March.”
But that's not all the news we have for you tonight!
Our friends over at Cinema Blend also caught up with Bayona and asked him if his film would be more a sequel to Jurassic World or a follow-up to the other films that have come before, to which Bayona revealed: "That’s a good question! I think somehow it’s both. It’s a very good question, and what we’re doing is a sequel to Jurassic World, but it’s definitely the fifth chapter of a longer saga. It’s very interesting. It’s always tricky, but you need to find a balance in what people expect to find, and the new stuff you’re bringing to the story. And I think the story is looking for a connection between Jurassic World and Jurassic Park — more than what Jurassic World did.”
Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Toby Jones and Rafe Spall, Jurassic World 2 stomps into theatres on June 22, 2018.
