While production is set to resume on the third instalment of the Jurassic World franchise, Jurassic World: Dominion, director Colin Trevorrow is also preparing to re-team with Universal Pictures for Atlantis.
In a recent report to Deadline, Atlantis is “a thriller about the mythical city” based on a by Trevorrow and Bridge of Spies screenwriter Matt Chapman but will be written by Dan Harper who penned the Tom Cruise-led Edge Of Tomorrow and Alien: Covenant.
According to the report, “unlike previous incarnations of the mythical city as an underwater kingdom, Trevorrow’s Atlantis is set on a lost continent in the Indian Ocean between Africa, India and Oceania. It is a multicultural civilization with its own advanced technology.”
Trevorrow originally created the project in 2018 but decided to keep it under wraps to allow his creative team — led by production designer Kevin Jenkins (Star Wars: Episode IX and Jurassic World: Dominion) – to research and expand the story further before committing to a script.
However, Atlantis will most likely not begin production until Trevorrow’s commitments to Jurassic World: Dominion has concluded – the film is currently slated for a June 11th, 2021 release date.
