Besides the fact that Universal Pictures will release Jurassic World in 3D on June 12, 2015, we don’t know much about what to expect. Rumors have surfaced that the film may be about the park some time later as it is officially open to the public, but the studio has not confirmed that. Fans have also wondered if the movie will serve as a reboot of the franchise. Director Colin Trevorrow has now addressed those worries on Twitter.
“Reboot is a strong word,” he said. “This is a new sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of Jurassic Park.”
If it is set 22 years after the first film, it could mean the theme park rumors are accurate.
Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson and Irrfan Khan will star in the film. Steven Spielberg returns to produce. Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a draft of the screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley join the team as fellow producers.
