From May onward don’t be surprised to see dinosaurs rushing around the streets of Malta, the theme which marked the ending of the previous film in the series, ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ which was released in 2018.
‘Jurassic World 3’ will be the sixth feature in the series following the first Steven Spielberg production of ‘Jurassic Park’ in 1993.
Actors including Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern, who featured in ‘Jurassic’ Park, are expected to be in Malta to feature in the latest production.
Colin Trevorrow will probably direct the film which will also shoot scenes in Canada, the US and Britain.
Films Commissioner Johan Grech said the choice of Malta is the result, among other factors, of an updated strategy by the Commission and the new incentives which between May and December last year attracted 21 productions to Malta and left €40 million in the country’s economy. A biblical film is currently being shot in Manoel Island and Valletta.
