Colin Trevorrow teases his upcoming Atlantis movie

With Jurassic World: Dominion bringing the Jurassic World saga to a conclusion, Colin Trevorrow is now setting his sights on Atlantis. It was announced last year that Colin Trevorrow would direct a movie based on the mythical legend of Atlantis and he dropped a few teases about the project while speaking with Empire recently.

Colin Trevorrow said that the myths of Atlantis are actually rather relevant to today’s world. “For a generation right now to be able to enter a world that is not unlike their world – where their elders have basically gifted them a civilization that is dying – I think it is the right moment for that story,” Trevorrow said. This story won’t depict Atlantis as a ruined city at the bottom of the ocean, but rather one on a lost continent in the Indian ocean occupied by a “multicultural civilization with its own advanced technology.” Atlantis is a story that has always fascinated Colin Trevorrow, who said that it’s the “only thing that equals dinosaurs for me.

I’m fascinated with it… I guess I tend to go back to the past. But, you know, it was the first time that we had technology. And it’s at a time when we had other kinds of creatures that aren’t around anymore There are just so many things about it that are fascinating to me. So yeah, I’m a deep nerd for it.

Colin Trevorrow will direct the Atlantis movie from a script penned by Dante Harper (Alien: Covenant), based on a story Trevorrow co-wrote with Matt Charman (Bridge of Spies).

Jurassic World: Dominion is set to hit theaters on June 10, 2022. Taking place several years after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel will find humanity having to deal with invasive dinosaurs species around the globe. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard have returned to reprise their roles of Owen Grady and Claire Dearing, respectively, but the film will also feature the return of Sam Neill as Dr. Alan Grant, Laura Dern as Dr. Ellie Sattler, and Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm.
