Dr. Ian Malcolm Returns in Jurassic World 2!
Life, uh…finds a way. A way to bring Jeff Goldblum back into the Jurassic Park franchise, that is!
It’s been confirmed by THR that the actor who played Dr. Ian Malcolm in the first two films of the franchise will be reprising his role in J.A. Bayona’s upcoming sequel Jurassic World 2. There’s no word on how large his role will be in the film but I’m happy with any amount!
Chris Pratt stars alongside Bryce Dallas Howard, Toby Jones, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Ted Levine, Rafe Spall, James Cromwell, and Daniella Pineda. J.A. Bayona is on board to direct with Frank Marshall producing along with Pat Crowley and Belén Atienza.
Colin Trevorrow, who helmed Jurassic World, penned the script with his writing partner, Derek Connolly. Trevorrow will also executive produce with Steven Spielberg. VP of production Sara Scott is overseeing production on behalf of Universal.
Universal has set June 22nd, 2018, as the release date.
