Scarlett Johansson is no stranger to mega blockbusters, will dinosaurs be her new mega hit? From superheroes to dinosaurs, we wouldn’t be surprised at all if the new film lead by her breaks records. Universal is moving quickly on the film, which has a July 2, 2025, release date. Gareth Edwards is directing the upcoming Jurassic World which has a script from Jurassic Park scribe David Koepp. Edwards stepped into the role after David Leitch exited following a short attachment to the project.

The new Jurassic World film is the latest in the 30-year old franchise, which began with Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. The 1993 hit based on Michael Crichton’s novel was a runaway success and has led to multiple sequels. The original film spawned a Spielberg-directed sequel, The Lost World (1997) and Joe Johnston’s Jurassic Park III (2001). Universal revived the franchise with the $1.67 billion grosser Jurassic World (2015), which spawned sequels Fallen Kingdom (2018) and Dominion (2022). Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard led the most recent trilogy of films, which filmmaker Colin Trevorrow oversaw. Now it looks like the lead in the film might be handed to Scarlett Johansson.
