With production for his upcoming film Jurassic World: Dominion set to recommence soon, Colin Trevorrow will be busier than ever. As first reported by THR, Universal Pictures has tapped the filmmaker to direct its upcoming film Atlantis.
The film will see the famous city as a technologically advanced lost continent in the Indian Ocean. The new location for the mythical island will reportedly be between Africa, India, and Oceania. Additionally, Atlantis will be based on a story penned by Trevorrow himself along with Matt Charman (Bridge of Spies). Moreover, the film’s script will be handled by Alien: Covenant scribe Dante Harper. Trevorrow birthed the film’s concept back in 2018 but spent years fleshing out the fictional world before taking it to screenwriters.
The new fantasy adventure will likely take inspiration from DC’s 2018 film Aquaman. The technological advancements made to create a completely underwater world was one of the most celebrated aspects of that Jason Momoa-starring vehicle.
Colin Trevorrow has been the center of a bevy of interesting stories over the last few years. At various points, the filmmaker has been attached to films like Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Guardians of the Galaxy. Up next, the director’s attention will be on the aforementioned Jurassic World: Dominion, set for a June 2021 theatrical release. Last month, producer Frank Marshall revealed the upcoming third installment to the franchise will not serve as its conclusion, with more to come in the future.
