Frank Marshall Discusses Jurassic World 2
Producer Frank Marshall recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss his rather crammed slate of projects. One of those being the highly anticipated sequel Jurassic World 2.
The trade asked Marshall what he felt made new director JA Bayona the right choice to take over from Colin Trevorrow for the next installment, to which he replied:
"He brings the same thing that Colin did. He's a wonderful filmmaker, but he's also a fan of the franchise, so that combination we discovered is a really good one. If you look at his movies, he's got a tremendous eye and will bring a freshness but also a familiarity to the movie."
Another Jurassic Park fan? This can only bode well for the future of the franchise.
Marshall was then asked how one would avoid the similar pitfalls that plagued past installments of the Jurassic Park franchise moving forward.
"It's about story. I wasn't involved in the second or third [Jurassic Park films], so I don't know how they went, but certainly we've got Colin and Derek [Connolly] writing this second one so that's a big plus for us. When Colin designed Jurassic World, he was looking forward as well to what No. 2 and No. 3 might be."
Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Justice Smith, Toby Jones and Rafe Spall, Jurassic World 2 will stomp into theaters on June 22, 2018.
