Not only did he contribute to the sequel’s screenplay with co-writer Derek Connolly, but Trevorrow also holds an executive producer credit on the as-yet-untitled blockbuster, which recently stomped past the halfway point in production. Indeed, Jurassic World 2 is seemingly shaping up to be a nerve-racking thrill ride – even more nerve-racking than the first, according to Colin Trevorrow himself – and while doing the rounds to promote his newly released drama, The Book of Henry (our review here), the filmmaker spoke with MTV about what fans can expect from the flick.
“It’s just deeper, more character-based, and it definitely leans into suspense, especially in the second half,” said the director.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard that Jurassic World 2 will be more suspenseful than what came before, but don’t take that to mean that there won’t be any action to be found here. In fact, if Trevorrow is to be believed, the sequel will definitely deliver in that department, as the writer teased a sequence that is, according to him, “just insane.”
“It does have the big action in the middle. There’s a sequence in the middle that I’ve been watching – I mean, I watch dailies every day – but I’ve started to see stuff come together, and it’s just insane,” Trevorrow said.
With Jurassic World 2 inching closer to the finish line, it won’t be too much longer before Juan Antonio Bayona’s monstrous sequel bows in theaters. June 22nd, 2018 is the date for your diaries, just don’t hold your breath for that first teaser trailer.
