A new Jurassic Park film is in the works, and there are some exciting updates about it. David Koepp, who was behind the adaptation of Jurassic Park in 1993 and its sequel, The Lost World in 1997, is in charge of writing the script for this new project. But that’s not the only news, as Deadline has provided additional details. According to the latest information, this new installment promises to refresh the dinosaur universe by moving away from the iconic actors who have been part of the franchise for its 31-year existence, such as Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neill.

Yes, it seems to be a complete franchise reboot, which is likely to divide audiences. Additionally, it’s hard to imagine how a complete reboot could happen so quickly, given that 2025 is approaching fast. As of now, director David Leitch, known for Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2, is a favored choice. It remains to be seen if the reboot will focus on returning to the source material and presenting a new interpretation of Michael Crichton’s novel.

The original film, while excellent, left out many key elements from the novel, including the creation of the dinosaurs, the characters, and even action scenes. There are still many untold stories from the source material that could be explored. It’s challenging to predict the direction of the reboot, but it would probably center on the creation and failure of the park, as that’s the central theme of the franchise. A reboot focusing on a different subject would likely face resistance from a portion of the audience, especially the fans.
