Though the ongoing global situation may have forced us all into our homes for the foreseeable future, as well as putting Hollywood on pause, this clearly will not stop Jurassic World 3 director Colin Treverrow from working on the upcoming monster movie sequel. Treverrow took to social media to reveal that he is still actively working on the movie, but like many others in Hollywood, he's having to do it from the safety of his own home.
In the post, Colin Trevorrow also appears to show an image from the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom follow-up which shows a figure with a bike near a warehouse of some kind amid what is likely to be some dino-caused debris. Sadly, Treverrow's accompanying caption gives nothing away.
Presently, specific plot details for Jurassic World: Dominion are being kept tightly under wraps, but, Fallen Kingdom picked up three years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. With Isla Nublar now sitting abandoned by humans, the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles, but when the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. The movie ends with man and dinosaur being forced to share the world after the genetically-engineered dinosaurs are unleashed into the wild.
So far, set photos from the movie have shown a mountain range covered in snow, which would be a huge departure for the franchise, which usually focusses on warm, tropical settings. Treverrow has also said of the upcoming entry to the franchise that Jurassic World: Dominion will do "something that we haven't seen before". Though, rest assured, there will no doubt still be plenty of dinosaur-related action.
The movie is also set to bring back many of the beloved characters from earlier installments, including Jurassic Park alums Laura Dern as Ellie Sattler, Sam Neill as Alan Grant, and Jeff Goldblum as Ian Malcolm, all of whom are returning as their characters from the 1993 original movie.
Running from dinosaurs alongside them will be a returning Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing and Chris Pratt as Owen Grady, reprising their roles from the other Jurassic World movies. The movie will also star Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, Daniella Pineda, and Justice Smith. Newcomers DeWanda Wise, Mamoudou Athie, Dichen Lachman, and BD Wong as the villainous Dr. Henry Wu, the geneticist that first appeared in the original Jurassic Park and returned for the 2015 film and its 2018 sequel.
Phew, that is quite the cast. Which is fitting when you consider that Chris Pratt has compared Jurassic World: Dominion to another massive franchise, that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and specifically last year's Avengers: Endgame.
"And so it's going to feel very much how Endgame brought everything together."
It all sounds very exciting, indeed, and no doubt we will see more teasing from Treverrow as he continues to work on the movie from home. Jurassic World: Dominion is scheduled to be released on June 11th, 2021. This comes to us from Colin Treverrow's instagram.
Television in the time of coronavirus is going to start to look drastically different. While many TV and film productions across the world have shut down out of abundance of caution for the spreading coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, some shows have forged ahead. Most of those ongoing productions are animated shows, with most of the moving parts of animated series voice acting, animation, etc. allowing staff and actors to complete their work virtually.
But live-action TV and movies are a different story, with actors and crew only able to shoot in close quarters for extended periods of time. However, the CBS drama All Rise is finding a way to navigate around that, with a virtually produced episode that will be shot entirely from home. The episode will, fittingly, be about coronavirus.
Deadline reports that the CBS legal drama All Rise, which is produced by Warner Bros. TV and CBS TV Studios, is returning to production with an episode that is being written and filmed extensively over FaceTime, Zoom, and other virtual technologies. The episode will be influenced by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and will focus on the effects of social distancing on the criminal justice system, as well as the characters’ personal lives.
The episode is currently written and will be shot by the cast and crew over FaceTime, Zoom, WebEx, and available social media and online technology. Virtual footage will be shot in each of the series regular’s homes, with producers planning to use VFX to create the backgrounds. A cinematographer operating solo from a vehicle will also capture exterior footage of the empty streets and neighborhoods of Los Angeles amid the coronavirus pandemic. Executive producer Michael Robin will direct the episode.
“It’s a unique chance for our All Rise family to band together – in our different homes, even cities – to tell a story about resilience, justice and the power of community,” executive producer Greg Spottiswood said.
Here is the synopsis of the episode:
In the episode, after debating the merits of continuing their work during this time, Judge Benner Marg Helgenberger authorizes Lola to preside over a virtual trial that involves a dispute between brothers and a stolen car. Emily Jessica Camacho represents the defendant, a graffiti artist, and Mark Wilson Bethel prosecutes for the D.A.’s office, marking the first time he tries a case in Lola’s “court.” Also, Mark and Quinn Lindsey Gort continue to explore their romantic and sexual relationship while quarantined in separate homes; Judge Benner oversees court from afar and struggles to learn how to cook; and Sara Lindsay Mendez has to balance her day job with a new side hustle as a food delivery driver. Luke J. Alex Brinson and Emily’s relationship is taxed by separation, and germaphobe...
