While promoting the DVD release of the box office-shattering Jurassic World, one of the film's stars, Bryce Dallas Howard (The Lady in the Water, The Village), confirmed that filming of the sequel will begin in 2017.

Not much is known about the sequel's plot, however, groundwork was laid in last film for dinosaurs to be weaponized and for more than one company to produce the prehistoric creatures. We do know the Velociraptor-whisperer, Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), will be back and so will high-heeled sprinter Claire (Howard).

Filmmaker Colin Trevorrow will not be back to direct the sequel, however, he is penning its screenplay alongside Derek Connolly, who was among the group of writers that penned Jurassic World.

Listen to Howard's comments, starting at the 7-minute mark, in the video below.

Located off the coast of Costa Rica, the Jurassic World luxury resort provides a habitat for an array of genetically engineered dinosaurs, including the vicious and intelligent Indominus rex. When the massive creature escapes, it sets off a chain reaction that causes the other dinos to run amok. Now, it's up to a former military man and animal expert (Chris Pratt) to use his special skills to save two young brothers and the rest of the tourists from an all-out, prehistoric assault.

    Let me guess, the sequel has something to do with dinosaurs trying to kill and/or eat humans. Hasn't this formula expired it's entertainment threshold yet.

    Said the man on a website dedicated to movies about comic book heroes. I think we lost the right to whine about 'formulas' a long time ago.

    You have a point. MY point is the JP/JW formula is one dimensional- dino's killing/eating or threatening to kill/eat people. That's it. it's a horror film formula really, but the draw is that the 'Jason' or 'Freddy' are dinosaurs. 

    CB heroes have muti-dimensional aspects contributing to the genre's formula. Yeah the good guy's gotta throw down with the bad guy and a bunch of stuff happens in between, but all that 'in between' stuff - if it's a well done CBM- creates alot of human emotional  thrills which we as an audience invest in.The only emotion stimulated in a JP/JW film is raw, primordial survival- one dimension.

  1. And what's stoppoing JW from having "the in between stuff"? Nothing. They can do it too. Don't act like Comic-Book are not formulaic because for the most part they are

  2. Who cares about a sequel to Jurassic World. The movie sucked
