'Jurassic World 2' to begin production in Hawaii next year
Production on "Jurassic World 2" is slated to start early next year in Hawaii.
Los Angeles: Production on "Jurassic World 2" is slated to start early next year in Hawaii.
Juan Antonio Bayona, who replaces Colin Trevorrow as director for the "Jurassic World" sequel, will begin the production of the film on February 27, 2017, reported Ace Showbiz.
It's unclear whether the fixed date is for pre-production or principal photography.
However, the fixed date seems plausible for the filming as Trevorrow has said that the crew will not spend too much time in Hawaii.
The majority of the filming will take place in London's Pinewood Studios.
"Jurassic World 2" would not focus on "a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island" like the previous "Jurassic" films.
Trevorrow said that he would focus on the idea of multiple companies cloning dinosaurs in the follow-up to "Jurassic World" which is scheduled for a June 22, 2018 US release.
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are set to reprise their respective roles, with Steven Spielberg returning as executive producer.
Bayona will direct the film with the screenplay written by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.
