Plot details are under wraps but the film is said to not include any of the stars of prior installments and is being seen as a semi-reboot.

Gareth Edwards (“Rogue One”)e is directing the creature feature which is rapidly locking down its cast ahead of a mid-June start in London.

Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley will produce and Steven Spielberg executive produces. Universal has already set a theatrical release of July 2nd 2025 and intends to stick to that date.

The casting comes as man-of-the-moment Glen Powell has revealed to THR that he was offered the film but passed on both it and a “Bourne Identity” update in the works at Universal.
