New Jurassic World film in development by original Jurassic Park writer David Koepp

A new film in the ‘Jurassic World’ franchise is in development at Universal with the original “Jurassic Park” writer David Koepp.

Koepp also wrote the 1997 sequel “The Lost World: Jurassic Park”, from Michael Crichton’s bestselling books.

He has been writing films for over 30 years, and his filmography includes entries in ‘Indiana Jones’ the ‘Spider-Man’ and ‘Mission Impossible’ franchises.

The project will launch a new era in the franchise, telling a new story from the ‘Jurassic World’ trilogy.

It’s unclear whether any of the previous actors, which include Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum, would return for the film.

Producer Frank Marshall, who is a mainstay within the franchise, will return for this installment, along with his producing partner Patrick Crowley.

Steven Spielberg, the director of 1993’s ‘Jurassic Park,’ and its sequel will executive produce through his company Amblin Entertainment.

No director is currently attached to the film.

The franchise has been incredibly successful for Universal, not only at the box office but also fuelling other markets like theme parks and toys.

2022’s “Jurassic World Dominion,” the sixth and most recent entry, achieved over $1 billion at the world box office.

That film ended with humans and dinosaurs living alongside each other and could serve as the jumping-off point for this new film.

Colin Trevorrow directed the film, alongside co-writing all three ‘Jurassic World’ films.

The Hollywood Reporter said the studio is looking to feature the new film in its 2025 release slate.
