Jurassic World 3 Filming Through The End Of October
Jeff Goldblum, one of the returning stars for Jurassic World 3, says the latest installment in the franchise is filming through the end of October.
Jurassic World: Dominion will be filming through the end of October, according to one of the returning stars of the film. Jurassic World: Dominion is the third part of the new Jurassic World trilogy, and it will follow on from 2018’s Fallen Kingdom ending, which saw the dinosaurs finally entering the world outside the island. However, the latest installment will also look to tie the entire franchise together by bringing back Jurassic Park originals Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern for major roles. Also, there have already been teases to tie-ins with The Lost World and Jurassic Park 3 by hinting at a return to Isla Sorna (Site B).
Dominion has faced some setbacks due to the coronavirus, as the filming was halted by the pandemic back in March, which director Colin Trevorrow said actually helped them sort through some of the visual effects sequences they already filmed. Dominion was, however, one of the first productions to restart, as filming recommenced at the beginning of July in the UK with the aid of health and safety procedures worth up to $5 million to combat the coronavirus. Universal also had to deny the production shut down again due to an outbreak, but an outbreak did affect their plans to shoot in Malta. Now, one of the film’s stars has provided an update on Jurassic World 3’s shooting schedule.
In an interview with Awards Circuit, Jeff Goldblum offered an update about his current quarantining location in England for Dominion’s filming and also went on to explain how long he expects to be there for. “We’re quarantining right now in England because we’re shooting this Jurassic World: Dominion. We’ve been here about a month and I’ll be here till the end of October, shooting this with Lauren Dern and Sam Neill, and Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.” Goldblum would also praise their director Trevorrow saying, “Colin Trevorrow is the great writer/director of this.”
Goldblum seems to have given a timeline on when people can expect the production of Dominion to wrap. The end of October not only fits in with Neill’s timeline of the actors being together for “three or four months,” but considering Goldblum reportedly has a major role in the film, it’s quite possible he’ll be a part of the filming until the end. If shooting does conclude at the end of October, or not long after, it also means the team will have a good amount of time to put the film together and tweak visual effects to ensure it is ready for the scheduled June 11, 2021 release.
Jurassic World: Dominion looks to be an action-packed finale for the franchise thus far, as not only will it feature former stars, but the film looks set to explore the dinosaurs in a a brand new, arctic setting as well. Stars like Bryce Dallas Howard and Neill have already praised the film, with Neill calling it the “best yet.” Expectations are certainly high, and fans of the franchise will be excited to hear filming is going well, and a possible end date for the Jurassic World 3 filming is in sight.
