Universal Pictures is moving at a breakneck pace to revive the “Jurassic World” series. The production company has set a 2025 theatrical release date for the film, even though the classic “Jurassic Park” screenwriter David Koepp was currently developing a story for a new entry in the saga. Furthermore, they are focusing on David Leitch, an established filmmaker of “John Wick” and “Deadpool 2,” to take on the project.
Deadline reports that Leitch is in preliminary negotiations to helm the future “Jurassic” movie, which will be the seventh instalment in the franchise in its entirety and does not yet have an official name. Leitch had previously been working for Universal on the highly successful “Fast & Furious” subsidiary “Hobbs & Shaw,” which brought in $760 million at the worldwide box office in 2019. Leitch has not yet committed, but given that the film is currently scheduled for premiere on July 2, 2025, there is reason to think that the agreement will be completed swiftly.
The picture will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg, who also helmed “The Last World,” the follow-up to the classic smash hit, while Frank Marshall, Patrick Crowley, Kelly McCormick, and Leitch will produce. The project will be managed by Sara Scott and Jacqueline Garell for the agency. Although the cast has not yet been announced, it is anticipated that a fresh group of people will be added to usher in a “new Jurassic era.”
