This past summer, it was revealed that shooting on Universal's Jurassic World sequel was set to begin in March 2017. However, Frank Marshall recently sat down to speak with Moviefone and revealed that things are actually much further along on the project, which will begin shooting in London this coming February!
"I’m excited about that one. We’re much further along. Actually, we start shooting in February in London. But I’m excited by the filmmaker, Juan Antonio Bayona, and what his take on the franchise and on the world of Jurassic is going to be. He’s an exciting young filmmaker, and a lot like Colin Trevorrow was, he’s an extraordinary filmmaker, but also a fan. So it’s going to be nice to see what he comes up with."
He then went on to discuss Bayona's style and how it would be brought forth on Jurassic World 2.
"He’s very meticulous in his preparation and in his doing storyboards and pre-viz, and he’s a real shooter. If you’ve seen his other movies, you know that he has a dark side to him as well. So I’m kind of excited about what he’s going to bring to the franchise."
Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, B.D. Wong, Justice Smith, Toby Jones and Rafe Spall, Jurassic World 2 begins shooting in February, and will hit theaters on June 22, 2018.
