With Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom just a matter of four months away, Universal aren’t wasting any time in announcing that Jurassic World 3 is very much in the pipeline. Today they announced a release date of June 11, 2021, for this epic dino adventure.
Powerhouse’s Emily Carmichael has been brought into the family fold to pen the script for the third outing after impressing Spielberg on the Amblin Entertainment production. She will be joined by Colin Trevorrow – who has co-written Fallen Kingdom – as co-writer.

Trevorrow will also return as an executive produce the new chapter alongside franchise creator Steven Spielberg. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are also returning as producers.
“It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive,” Trevorrow said Wednesday 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.”
As you can imagine, plot details are being kept top secret for the time being.
Carmichael already has a yet to be released blockbuster under her belt in the form of Pacific Rum: Uprising which she co-wrote alongside Steven S. DeKnight. She was also brought on board Disney’s and John Krasinki’s The Black Hole for rewrites.
