“Jurassic World : Dominion”, the third and reportedly final chapter in the “Jurassic World” series of films, has admirably wrapped production. The $165m Universal sequel wrapped at UK’s Pinewood Studios after an unarguably tough shoot, one that required 40,000 Covid tests, millions of dollars spent on safety measures, and for cast and crew to isolate in a bubble for months.
“There are a lot of emotions,” director Colin Trevorrow told Deadline on the way to shooting the finale of the film which will feature “Jurassic legacy actors Sam Neil, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard and newcomers to the movie such as Mamoudou Athie and DeWanda Wise [who we’ve separately heard could have a big role in future instalments]…and some dinosaurs, of course.”
“I’m not sure I can put it into words,” continues Trevorrow. “It has been remarkable. Our crew and our cast has been so resilient. All producers have worked around the clock to make it the best it can be. It has been inspiring.”
Donna Langley, Chairman Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, told the outlet: “As we continue to contend with the challenges facing our industry during a global pandemic, the collaborative nature of this production allowed us to safely complete nearly 100 days of shooting, and we are so proud of what this team was able to accomplish.”
The film is due to hit theaters 2022.
