Jurassic World 2 Offers Underwater Face Off Between Marine Dinosaurs And Submarines

It looks like Jurassic Park fans are going to see a lot more underwater dinosaurs in Jurassic World 2.

After Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World successfully reinvigorated the classic science fiction dinosaur film franchise with a grander park, an impressive water-based dinosaur and the Indominous Rex, the film's sequel director J.A. Bayona plans to up the ante even further by having submarines fight against marine dinosaurs.


Kevin Layne, an actor who was recently added to Jurassic World 2 went on an interview on MSTF Management. The star was asked about his role in the Jurassic World sequel and went on saying too much, giving away the "epic" scene he's playing in.

"I remember getting advice from Lennie [his agent], 'Make sure you go looking like the part. You're a soldier, you're a mercenary. Think it. Be it.'"

"I read for two parts, and ended up getting the role of ‘submarine pilot', which was the role I wanted as it is quite an epic scene. So I should have a nice cinematic moment on screen in a massive studio film."

"Filming starts in May hopefully I'll be in one of their amazing contraptions, pretending that there's dinosaurs around me. I've never worked with CGI before so it's fun and challenging. But I can now say to people 'You know there's no dinosaur there right?'"


Layne's probably going to get into trouble for blabbing out too much – Universal probably wanted to keep the whole scene a surprise. Still, the idea of submarine ramming and lodging missiles at underwater dinosaurs is nothing short of epic. We definitely can't wait to see the underwater squalor.

JurassicWorld 2 is scheduled for release on June 22, 2018.
