A new 'Jurassic World' film is in development.

Universal Pictures are working on a new movie in the dinosaur franchise that will see David Koepp – who wrote the screenplay for the original 'Jurassic Park' film in 1993 – pen the script.

Progress on the picture is far enough along that Universal are said to be planning a 2025 release date.

No director is currently attached but producer Frank Marshall – who was involved in the 'Jurassic World' trilogy – is working on the project while original director Steven Spielberg will executive produce for his Amblin Entertainment banner.

The flick is thought to be launching a "new Jurassic era" with a brand-new storyline.

This would appear to rule out the returns of the 'Jurassic World' characters played by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard as well as original 'Jurassic Park' cast members Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum.

The most recent film in the franchise, 'Jurassic World Dominion', was met with negative reviews when it was released in 2022 – prompting director Colin Trevorrow to claim that sequels to 'Jurassic Park' should never have been made.

He told Empire magazine: "There probably should have only been one 'Jurassic Park' – but if we're gonna do it, how can I allow them to tell stories in a world which dinosaurs exist, as opposed to, here's another reason why we're going to an island?"

Trevorrow, 47, explained that he tried to attempt something different with the plot to bring the trilogy to a close.

He said of the film: "I specifically did something different than the other films in order to change the DNA of the franchise. The previous five films are plots about dinosaurs. This one is a story about characters in a world in which they coexist with dinosaurs."
