Production is underway on Jurassic World 2, with the first chunk of the film set to shoot in London, before heading off to Hawaii. The news that things were underway was broken by producer Frank Marshall on his Twitter account.

Up until last week, casting of key roles was still taking place, and the newest addition to the group is none other than Silence Of The Lambs’ Ted Levine – he of the very distinctive voice that we try not to associate with pure terror and usually fail miserably at.
Levine joins Rafe Spall, Toby Jones, Justice Smith and returning stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the dinosaur-heavy sequel to Jurassic World, which remains the fourth highest grossing film of all time, believe it or weep.
Bayona has previously teased the ramping up towards production on his Twitter account. Take a look…
