David Leitch Is Di-No Longer Directing Jurassic World 4

Earlier this week, it was reported that Jurassic World 4 had probably discovered a director in Bullet Practice’s David Leitch. Smash lower to now, and Leitch is not hooked up to the venture.

Per Deadline, Leitch and Common cut up amicably on account of “inventive variations.” Earlier than then, it sounded just like the director was the frontrunner as a result of Common is “very excessive” on his upcoming flick, The Fall Man. And together with his action-movie chops, you possibly can see why they’d need to get him on board to kickstart a brand new saga of people and dinosaurs for the long-running franchise. What went unsuitable? Sources chatting with the Hollywood Reporter declare it wouldn’t have been a David Leitch film, only one directed by him.

Jurassic World 4 was formally unveiled in late January, nevertheless it’s apparently far alongside in improvement that comfortable prep and dino designs are already being cooked up. One supply mentioned there simply “[isn’t] sufficient time to work with new concepts,” even because it appears like Leitch wished so as to add some motion film spice into the combination. The implication is that Common actually simply wanted somebody to get the factor out the door for its already introduced summer season 2025 date, much like how Louis Leterrier was introduced on for Quick X after unique director Justin Lin bowed out.

With Leitch gone, the hunt for a brand new director is on, although Deadline didn’t checklist any potential candidates, or who else was within the working with him to helm the venture. Whereas characters from the unique two Jurassic trilogies aren’t coming again, it’s bought a returning author in David Koepp, who penned the unique movie. With how vital that franchise is to Common’s theme park arm, you possibly can think about the studio goes to nail down a director sooner fairly than later.

It hasn’t been that lengthy since Jurassic World Dominion, although, the franchise might most likely stand to be gone somewhat longer. The hole between Jurassic Park 3 and the unique Jurassic World was 14 years, and whereas anotheer certainly one of these was at all times within the playing cards, a three-year break doesn’t really feel fairly proper. And given how a lot Dominion appeared to have burned by way of the World collection’ remaining goodwill, somewhat extra time away would absolutely do it (and all of us) some good, don’t you assume?

At time of writing, Jurassic World 4 continues to be locked in for July 2, 2025.
