Jones can be seen in the upcoming fourth series of BBC's Sherlock, while Spall will be appearing in the third series of Netflix's Black Mirror.

Commenting on what the sequel could be like, Jurassic World's director and co-screenwriter, Colin Trevorrow, said that he wasn't looking to go bigger or more action packed.

In fact, he wanted to go in a more suspenseful direction with the project, which he will help executive produce alongside Spielberg. Frank Marshall, Pat Browley and Belen Atienza will handle producing. On Jurassic Outpost, Trevorrow said that, "It will be more suspenseful and scary. It's just the way it's designed; it's the way the story plays out. I knew I wanted (J.A.) Bayona to direct it long before anyone ever heard that was a possibility, so the whole thing was built around his skill set."

Jurassic World was the most financially successful film of the series, and the fourth most financially successful film of all time.

The first Jurassic World, the fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, was released on June 12 2016.
