Chris Pratt is busy doing press for his Marvel projects with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 releasing very soon and Avengers: Infinity War on the horizon, but we shouldn’t forget about the other beloved franchise that he is the star of. It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything concrete about the sequel to Jurassic World, but Pratt is confident in his director. At a press junket for Guardians Vol.2, Pratt was asked what he was allowed to reveal about Jurassic World 2 and said:
Aw man, J.A. Bayona? Do you know that filmmaker? He’s a remarkable filmmaker. If you haven’t seen The Impossible or A Monster Calls, I mean he’s really visually masterful. Deep emotions and suspense. I think it’s going to be a scarier version. A little bit darker and will continue to expand and carry the story forward in a way that is really unexpected and you wouldn’t have imagined.
As much as I enjoyed Jurassic World, I think there were opportunities for more thriller and horror types of scenes. Despite the strange rumors that suggest dinosaurs will be wielding firearms in the sequel, I am very interest in the future of the franchise, especially with Pratt taking centerstage.

The untitled Jurassic World sequel is set to release on June 22, 2018.
