James Cromwell recently sat down with Larry King to talk about, among other things, his appearance in Jurassic World 2. Read on for a slight spoiler or don’t and preserve the surprise.
“The character Richard Attenborough played (John Hammond), I’m his partner, Benjamin Lockwood,” Cromwell told King. “We developed the technology of being able to clone the genes. And so I’m trying to deal with the blowback from what we have done.”
Cromwell stars alongside Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Toby Jones, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Ted Levine, Rafe Spall, 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 22, 2018, as the release date.
