After missing out on one major franchise and returning to Jurassic World, it seems like Universal are going in on Colin Trevorrow business as they’re re-teaming for a thriller about the mythical city of Atlantis.
According to Deadline, the project is based on a story by Trevorrow and Matt Charman (Bridge of Spies) from a script by Dante Harper. Whose previous works included All You Need Is Kill before it became the Tom Cruise action movie Edge of Tomorrow.
It looks like Trevorrow is building a new legacy for the mythical underwater kingdom as this version will be based on a lost continent in the Indian Ocean between Africa, India and Oceania with a multicultural civilisation and advanced technology.
Trevorrow, currently about to restart production on Jurassic World: Dominion, has been attached to the project since late 2018. However, kept the project under wraps to give his production team – lead by production Kevin Jenkins (Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, Jurassic Park: Dominion) – time reaching and building a world before writing the script.
Atlantis continues the strong working relationship between the studio and the filmmaker and his production company Metronome and it’s their second project together. The first being Space Opera, a musical based on Catherynne Valente’s book.
No dates have been given for release as everyone wants to get the third Jurassic World film out first.
