Maybe the T-rex got him.

Earlier this week, it was reported that David Leitch (Deadpool 2) was in talks to helm the as yet-untitled next entry in the super-successful Jurassic World franchise. Apparently, that was a very short conversation.

Leitch–according to a report on Deadline–is no longer in the running for that director’s chair. Sources said the split was amicable, adding that Universal Studios and the filmmaker had different visions for the movie.

The new film–reportedly a complete reboot of 2015’s Jurassic World–is being written by David Koepp. The feature is gearing up for a July 2, 2025 release date.

None of the stars of the past films will appear in this new installment–but Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley are on board as producers.

The previous six Jurassic films have raked in more than $6 billion worldwide–with 2022’s Jurassic World: Dominion earning a cool $1 billion on its own.
