And now, it seems like the actor has no intention to let go of his ties with the franchise either, as he has revealed plans to sign on for subsequent “Jurassic World” sequels. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Pratt humorously said, “They (the studios) have me for I think 38 movies or something“.
Nothing else has been revealed of a sequel, but we have loads of time ahead of us, as “Jurassic World” has just hit cinemas last Thursday (11th June). The movie made an explosive debut in the box office, grossing $511.8 million (approximately RM 1.9 billion) worldwide in its first 4 days of premiering.
The achievement has made “Jurassic World” the movie with the highest global box office opener of all time. It has taken over 2011’s “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2“, which was the previous record holder at $483.2 million.
Directed and written by Colin Trevorrow, “Jurassic World” is the direct sequel to “Jurassic Park” as it takes place 22 years after the events of the original, skipping the events from “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” and “Jurassic Park III”.
The movie was executive produced by Steven Spielberg, with Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley in the seat of producers. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver came up with the story, which was then adapted into a screenplay by Amanda Silver, Derek Connolly, Jaffa, and Trevorrow. The movie is currently playing in cinemas.
