Jurassic World sequel to film in the UK

Jurassic worldHot on the heels of the recent news that JA Bayona is due to direct the forthcoming untitled Jurassic World sequel, we can now confirm that the blockbuster will be filming in the UK. 

From Amblin Entertainment and Universal Pictures, the film is written by Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow, with Patrick Crowley and Frank Marshall producing. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard once again lead the cast. 

A deal has been done with a UK studio and UPM, which we will be able to make available to PI subscribers nearer the time of production. 

Jurassic World, which Trevorrow also directed, opened in June last year in over 60 countries and has since gone on to take over $1.6bn worldwide, making it the fourth highest-grossing film of all time. 

Bayona has worked with UK crew and locations before – he was in the UK for A Monster Calls, which he directed in autumn 2014 with Liam Neeson, Sigourney Weaver and Felicity Jones. He is currently in Budapest making his feature acting debut with a cameo role on Fernando Trueba’s The Queen of Spain with Penelope Cruz.
