Jurassic World 2 Director Teases Beginning Of Production

The first Jurassic World turned out to be a bigger hit than anyone imagined, and it quickly broke box office records. To no one's surprise, the movie was granted at least two sequels.

Jurassic World 2 has been slated for a summer 2018 release, and the pre-production stages of the film are finally starting to wrap up. Before too long, the cast and crew will be gearing up to start filming another larger-than-life dino blockbuster.

Director JA Bayona - a newcomer to the franchise - has made it seem like production is happening much sooner than anyone expected. In a tweet, early Thursday morning, Bayona tweeted out a picture of the classic Jurassic prop.

The image shows a few of the Jurassic World staff helmets on a table. Along with the black-and-white photo, the director included the caption, "Getting ready for the journey."

This is big news for fans of the Jurassic franchise, as it means the new movie is moving forward very, very soon.
