Universal Pictures has tapped Emily Carmichael to join Colin Trevorrow as co-writer on JURASSIC WORLD 3, which is set to bow on June 11, 2021. As of right now, Jurassic World 3 has the date all to itself, with the only other title in proximity is an untitled Disney/Pixar movie opening on June 18, 2021.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, directed by J.A Bayona, is set to open on June 22, 2018.
Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow are returning to executive produce Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainments latest installment in the franchise. Pat Crowley and Frank Marshall return as producers.
Carmichael was hired by Amblin in 2016 to write and direct the family action-adventure Powerhouse. She co-wrote the upcoming Pacific Rim Uprising and most recently rewrote The Black Hole for Disney and director Joseph Kosinski. The writers will work off a story by Trevorrow and Derek Connoly, who wrote Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom together.
“It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive,” said Trevorrow in a statement. “I’m thrilled with the tension and beauty J.A. has brought to Fallen Kingdom, and I know Emily will add another layer of emotion to the concluding chapter of our trilogy.”
Jurassic World proved to be a box office juggernaut, with the third best opening of all-time at the domestic box office with $208.8 million. The pic went on to make $652. million stateside, and $1.67 billion worldwide.
Carmichael and Trevorrow are represented by Verve.
