Jurassic World Reboot Loses David Leitch And The Hunt Is On For A New Director

Universal Pictures has been quietly developing a new "Jurassic World" film for some time in the background, yet as its release date nears next summer there has still been no director announced for that installment. Reports last week claimed David Leitch ("Deadpool 2," Atomic Blonde") might take charge, however those talks have fallen through and now someone must fill his role quickly before any more time passes by.

Deadline reported that Leitch and Universal parted ways due to diverging visions for their film. With so much unknown about this entry in the franchise, it's impossible to ascertain exactly where these differences may lie; nonetheless, Deadline noted this has quickly become one of Hollywood's premier directing jobs, set for release July 2025 and filming likely starting shortly. Filming needs to start quickly in order to meet that deadline!

Plot details have remained secretive; however, David Koepp, who wrote the original "Jurassic Park," will return as screenwriter of this entry and it has been speculated that it will signal a "new Jurassic era," likely with new cast members taking their places - so Chris Pratt as Owen Grady or Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing are likely not back as characters from past entries such as these two movies are unlikely to return in this one.

Who will direct Jurassic World: Rise of an Extinct Planet??

At this stage, no names have been put forward regarding who may replace Leitch. According to The InSneider however, Universal may want a shooter, since production will occur under tight deadlines - meaning this likely be more of a gun-for-hire job rather than having one vision dominate this franchise's universe.

Universal is still undecided as to if their new "Jurassic World Dominion" movie will follow after or reboot from 2022's events, or whether this new installment will serve more as an overall reboot; each option offers pros and cons; however it should come as no surprise why they decided to keep this franchise alive given that six entries so far have generated over $6 billion worldwide box office receipts across three decades! It has proven hugely popular thus giving every reason for another film with great execution keeping this money train rolling along smoothly!
The new "Jurassic World" movie will premiere in theaters on July 2, 2025.
