The fourth Jurassic World film, which will tell a completely different tale from the original Jurassic World trilogy starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, has a “so incredible” script, according to Johansson.

Over 1 billion dollars was made by each of the three Jurassic World films at the global box office. In the newest film, Johansson plays the major role with Jonathan Bailey, David Iacono, Mahershala Ali, Rupert Friend, Luna Blaise, and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo.

“David Koepp wrote it and returned after 30 years to write it and he’s so passionate about it,” Johannson said. “I’ve been trying to get into this franchise in any possible way for over 10 years. I’m like, ‘I’ll die in the first five minutes! I can get eaten by whatever! I’ll do the craft service!’ I’ll do anything for it. The fact that it’s happened this way at this time is unbelievable.”

Jurassic World 4 will be shot in locations such as Thailand, studios in Malta, and the UK. Steven Spielberg is executive producing the film through Amblin Entertainment. Jurassic Park producer Frank Marshall is also returning, along with his regular producing partner Patrick Crowley, reported Variety.
