However, according to an interview Neill gave The Guardian, the shooting may soon start again.

"I should be going into Pinewood at 6 am. All the sets are there, waiting," he said, adding, "I miss the company of friends and the conviviality around a table in a restaurant, sharing some good wine together. I can’t wait to get back to it. One hopes that people haven’t got used to being without it.”

The plot of Jurassic World: Dominion still remains under wraps.  Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom began three years after the destruction of the theme park with Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) returning to the island to save the dinosaurs from a volcano. The closing scenes of the film had shown dinosaurs roaming freely in the wilderness and entering urban areas as well.

It was recently rumoured that Jurassic World: Dominion could be the last film in the series. However, producer Frank Marshall cleared things up with a definitive "no" whilst promoting his new documentary Laurel Canyon. He added, "It's the start of a new era... The dinosaurs are now on the mainland amongst us, and they will be for quite some time, I hope."
