There was a huge announcement that Universal was in major talks to bring out another Jurassic World film with David Koepp as the writer. Now according to Deadline, they’ve found a director and are in early talks with David Leitch. The film is supposed to release in theaters on July 2nd, 2025, which doesn’t give it a whole lot of time to get off the ground.

The new movie will be a completely different take on the Jurassic franchise that likely won’t include Chris Pratt or Bryce Dallas Howard from the three previous Jurassic World films. It also won’t be including Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, or Sam Neill.

The film will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg through Amblin Entertainment, Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley will produce and David Leitch and Kelly McCormick will also produce through 87North. Executive Vice President of Production Development Sara Scott and Creative Executive of Production Development Jacqueline Garell will oversee the project for the Studio.

This deal is currently tentative, but if reached, would be a major name to helm the franchise. If you forgot, Jurassic World: Dominion is one of the only films in recent years, since the COVID-19 pandemic to rake in over $1 billion at the box office. Koepp previously wrote the first two Jurassic Park films in addition to plenty of other credits. Leitch has previously worked on films like Deadpool 2 and Bullet Train. That action style doesn’t really jive with the style we’ve come to know and love from the Jurassic series, so it’ll be interesting to see how he works it.

Leitch directed the upcoming The Fall Guy for Universal and has also done Hobbs & Shaw for the studio.
