The director of the sci-fi movie Jurassic World, Colin Trevorrow, is ready to delve into the depths and make a feature film based on the myth of Atlantis. The project, which was previously in development at Universal, is now being undertaken by Skydance Studios instead.
Colin Trevorrow himself is set to produce the film and direct, shooting the picture from a script prepared by Charmaine De Grate, the screenwriter and executive producer of the Dragon House series. The forthcoming film is so far titled simply 'Atlantis' and is described as "a fantasy adventure based on the myth of a legendary highly advanced civilisation that reached unprecedented heights and then was lost either to the elements, a curse of the ancient gods or hubris".
Colin Trevorrow's last film as director was Jurassic World 3: Reign, 2022, only his fourth feature film since The Book of Henry, Jurassic World and 2012's Safety Not Guaranteed. Two of his four film projects have grossed over a billion dollars at the global box office, putting him in the company of a limited number of Hollywood directors.
No timetable has yet been given for his new Atlantis-related plans.Atlantis movies and cartoons.
The myth of Atlantis has been echoed on the big screen several times in recent years, appearing in the comic book adaptations of Aquaman and Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever. The animated film Monsters on Vacation 3: The Sea Calls also included elements of the Atlantis mythos. The mysterious civilisation was also mentioned in the Disney cartoon Atlantis: The Lost World.
