Universal is giving little away on the new Jurassic World movie storyline beyond dinosaurs likely to return to the big screen and a completely new storyline.

David Koepp, the original screenwriter of Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park, is penning the screenplay.

The film will be released in theaters on July 2, 2025, and is executive produced by Steven Spielberg through Amblin Entertainment. The legendary director redefined the summer blockbuster with the 1993 original movie Jurassic Park. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley will produce the latest franchise installment through Kennedy-Marshall.

The untitled Jurassic Park movie follows Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s six prior movies in the franchise that collectively earned over $6 billion at the box office worldwide. The Chris Pratt-starring Jurassic World trilogy concluded with the 2022 film Jurassic World Dominion.

Executive vp of production development Sara Scott and creative executive of production development Jacqueline Garell will oversee the project for Universal.

Iacono is represented by Rebel Creative Group, Take 3 Talent Agency, Vainshtein Law, P.C. and imPRint.
