This film will mark the beginning of a fresh storyline in the juggernaut series, which has spanned three decades. It’s not yet clear if any previous stars, including Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neill, Laura Dern or Jeff Goldblum, will return.

Since the June 1993 release of Spielberg’s original “Jurassic Park,” the six-film franchise has earned more than $6 billion worldwide. The most recent entry in the series, 2022’s “Jurassic World Dominion,” surpassed $1 billion worldwide.

David Leitch’s directorial credits include “John Wick,” “Atomic Blonde,” “Fast & Furious” spinoff “Hobbes & Shaw,” “Deadpool 2″ and this year’s Emily Blunt and Ryan Gosling-led action comedy “The Fall Guy,” out May 3. He is represented by CAA, Johnson Shapiro Slewett & Kole and 42West.
