David Koepp, the original screenwriter of "Jurassic Park" and "The Lost World: Jurassic Park," will write the script for the film, which will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg through Amblin Entertainment. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley will produce and David Leitch and Kelly McCormick will also produce through 87North.  

Koepp's other scripts in his 30-plus year screenwriting career include "Mission: Impossible," "Spider-Man," "Death Becomes Her," "Panic Room" and "War of the Worlds." He is represented by CAA and attorney David Fox at Myman Greenspan Fineman Fox Rosenberg & Light.

This film will mark the beginning of a fresh storyline in the juggernaut series, which has spanned three decades. It's not yet clear if any previous stars, including Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neill, Laura Dern or Jeff Goldblum, will return.

David Leitch's directorial credits include "John Wick," "Atomic Blonde," "Fast & Furious" spinoff "Hobbes & Shaw," "Deadpool 2″ and this year's Emily Blunt and Ryan Gosling-led action comedy "The Fall Guy," out May 3. He is represented by CAA, Johnson Shapiro Slewett & Kole and 42West.
