Earlier this year we received the exciting news that Jurassic Park 3 will be partly filmed in Malta. Initially, we were informed that filming was to start in May, but let’s just say 2020 had other plans in store.
Sources now confirm that we can expect the Jurassic World crew to start filming scenes right here in Malta, in August.
The film is expected to be released in cinemas in June 2021 and will be filmed in Malta, Vancouver, Hawaii and London’s Pinewood studios.
The multi-million production will include Valletta, Vittoriosa, Mellieħa, and Pembroke.
The Malta Film Commission is in full collaboration with the Health Authority to make sure all safety precautions are kept with strict protocols.
“As Film Commission, we’ve been working hard to attract the Universal Pictures blockbuster since April 2019,” Film Commissioner Johann Grech stated.
“Malta will continue to show its potential globally, and as Malta Film Commission, we are proud to host Jurassic World. We are always hands-on to give the support and resources to producers,” the Film Commissioner concluded.
Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum will reprise their roles in the upcoming Jurassic World 3.
The actors led the cast of the 1993 hit, directed by Steven Spielberg, and have appeared separately in subsequent installments.
It is believed the trio will appear alongside Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the stars of 2015’s Jurassic World and 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
The latter release saw Goldblum reprise his role as Dr Ian Malcolm, having previously done so in 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
Neill and Dern reprised their roles as Dr Alan Grant and Dr Ellie Sattler in 2001 film Jurassic Park III.
In recent years Neill has been seen as Chester Campbell in Peaky Blinders, while Goldblum released an album of jazz tunes in 2018.
