UPDATE: David Leitch is officially out of the running as Gareth Edwards has signed on to direct the new Jurassic World movie.

After negotiations fell through with Leitch, Universal Pictures quickly moved on to Edwards, who is best known for directing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) and Godzilla (2014).

The new film will be a completely fresh take as none of the stars from the previous installments are expected to return.

Steven Spielberg will serve as executive producer through Amblin Entertainment with Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley producing through Kennedy-Marshall.
