We’ve confirmed that a new Jurassic World movie, a complete reboot, is being fast-tracked at Universal with the franchise’s original Jurassic Park screenwriter David Koepp. He adapted the first two movies from 1993 and 1997’s The Lost World from Michael Crichton’s novels.
The new movie will be a completely fresh take on a Jurassic era with Jurassic World castmembers Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard not expected to return, nor the original trilogy’s thespians Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and Sam Neill.

The film will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg through Amblin Entertainment, Frank Marshall, and Patrick Crowley will produce.
The Jurassic movies through six titles have grossed more than $6 billion worldwide. The last installment, Jurassic World: Dominion, released in 2022 made $1 billion at the global box office.
Executive Vice President of Production Development Sara Scott and Creative Executive of Production Development Jacqueline Garell will oversee the project for the Studio.
Koepp was here at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday night with the movie Presence, which he scripted and Steven Soderbergh directed. That movie, starring Lucy Liu, Chris Sullivan, Julia Fox, and Callina Liang is 100% currently on Rotten Tomatoes and up for sale here at Sundance.
