‘Jurassic World’ Franchise Director David Leitch Is Out

Universal’s Jurassic World Franchise Loses Director David Leitch

David Leitch’s journey to the world of dinosaurs has hit a roadblock as talks between the filmmaker and Universal Studios for a new Jurassic World movie have fallen through, according to confirmation from The Hollywood Reporter.

Last week, news broke that Leitch was set to helm a new installment in the Jurassic World series, with Universal even marking a July 2, 2025, release date for the anticipated film. However, discussions between the studio and the director have ceased, reportedly due to differences in vision, though the separation is described as amicable.

The decision to part ways with Leitch comes after Universal’s recent announcement of moving forward with another Jurassic World film, featuring David Koepp, the screenwriter behind the original Jurassic Park and its 1997 sequel, returning to pen the script. This development hints at a fresh direction for the franchise, possibly signaling the absence of characters portrayed by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard from the previous films. The Jurassic series, spanning six features, has collectively grossed over $6 billion worldwide.

David Leitch, known for his directorial work on Deadpool 2 and Universal titles like Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, as well as the upcoming Fall Guy, had been anticipated to bring his unique touch to the beloved dinosaur saga.

While Universal and Leitch have parted ways for now, fans eagerly await further updates on the future of the Jurassic World franchise. Deadline was the first to report this development.
