'Honestly, I ugly cried,' the actress says
Bryce Dallas Howard has survived a second run-in with genetically engineered dinosaurs, and she’s feeling a bit wistful about the whole thing.
On Tuesday the actress marked the end of production on Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom with an endearing photo of her embracing costar Chris Pratt.
“Day #60 and that’s a wrap!” Howard tweeted. “Honestly, I ugly cried. Bye, Hawaii!”
Howard and Pratt are reprising their roles from the 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World, in which she played an uptight corporate drone and he played a cocky dinosaur trainer. J.A. Bayona (The Impossible, A Monster Calls) is directing Fallen Kingdom, taking the reins from Colin Trevorrow.
Though plot details remain scarce, Bayona has compared the sequel’s tone to The Empire Strikes Back and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. “It will be darker and scarier than the previous film,” he told the Spanish news agency Agencia EFE last year. “Obviously, when you have Chris Pratt it will also be very funny. But it will be darker.”
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits theaters June 22, 2018.
