How does one go about emulating a film that amassed an eye-watering $1.67 billion at the international box office? That’s a task that has been assigned to Juan Antonio Bayona, The Impossible director who officially took the reins on Jurassic World 2 late last year.
Since his appointment, we’ve learned Universal’s blockbuster sequel will up the ante quite considerably, even featuring stronger ties to the original Jurassic Park – you know, beyond Jake Johnson’s vintage T-shirt. Rafe Spall and Sherlock‘s Toby Jones are among the new recruits, and with production now expected to begin in March, JoBlo caught up with Bryce Dallas Howard to discuss all things Jurassic World 2.
