Jurassic World: Dominion director Colin Trevorrow will return to work with Universal Pictures for a new film centered on the legendary city of Atlantis.
Deadline said that the agreement for the science fiction thriller between Trevorrow and the production company was closed before resuming production on the third film in the Jurassic World franchise.
Everything indicates that the film will be based on a narrative about the legend of the lost city that Trevorrow and his company Metronome Film Co. will produce.
The story, conceived by Trevorrow and Matt Charman (The Bridge of Spies), will be written by Dante Harper, responsible for the Alien: Covenant script. Apparently, this narrative will take a different approach from previous productions about the legendary underwater kingdom.
Rather than being based on these stories, Trevorrow’s Atlantis will be located on a “continent lost in the Indian Ocean between Africa, India and Oceania,” described as a “multicultural civilization with its own advanced technology.”
It is rumored that Trevorrow created the concept for Atlantis in late 2018, but kept the project silent to allow the creative team to fully develop the world before starting to write.
Before taking on this new project, Trevorrow will resume production of Jurassic World: Dominion on July 6th.
