Jurassic World 3: Colin Trevorrow Working On Movie From Home After Shutdown
Jurassic World: Dominion director Colin Trevorrow has continued to work on the film from home while production remains shut down due to coronavirus.
Production may be delayed, but director Colin Trevorrow is still working on Jurassic World: Dominion from home. The third Jurassic World film had only begun production in February, but the growing coronavirus pandemic shut it down a few weeks ago. Jurassic World: Dominion is far from the only production that has been forced to halt because of the crisis, with the ever-growing list of films including The Batman, The Matrix 4, Fantastic Beasts 3, and Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. This has led to a great deal of uncertainty within the entertainment industry, as studios don't know when productions will be able to resume work. Future release dates could also be impacted by the current shutdowns.
Capping off the rebooted Jurassic World franchise, Jurassic World: Dominion will see the returns of many familiar faces, starting with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas-Howard as the franchise's current leads. Most excitingly, the film will bring back the stars of the original Jurassic Park: Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum. Specific plot details have yet to be revealed, but fans are expecting Dominion to pick up where the post-credits scene from 2018's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom left off, with dinosaurs officially entering the real world.
Trevorrow shared on Instagram that he's still finding ways to work on Dominion while stuck at home. His post shows a picture of his computer monitor, which displays what is presumably an image from the film. Unfortunately, it's hard to tell exactly what is happening in it aside from the fact that it shows a figure with a bicycle and some buildings hidden in smoke. Check it out below:
Trevorrow isn't the only director working on a film from home, as James Gunn recently shared he's editing The Suicide Squad while self-isolating. However, Trevorrow working on Dominion after only shooting for about a month (or even less) shows just how much he clearly doesn't want to be delayed. The coronavirus pandemic has hit the entertainment industry, like all industries, incredibly hard, and experts believe the affects will be felt for a long time afterward.
It's reassuring that Trevorrow is still focusing on Dominion to avoid any further delays, though at some point he might run out of things to do. Jurassic World: Dominion is currently slated for release on June 11, 2021, but it could end up being pushed back if production doesn't resume soon. For the time being, however, Trevorrow is still hard at work.
