Life Finds A Way.
Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and B.D. Wong won't be the only familiar faces returning in J.A. Bayona's Jurassic World sequel. The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned that franchise veteran Jeff Goldblum, who played hip mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park, has joined the cast of the highly anticipated film.
Bayona is directing, while Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow will executive produce, while Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley return as producers.
Goldblum, who will next be seen in Thor: Ragnarok, joins a cast that also includes the likes of Raff Spall, Toby Jones, Ted Levine, Justice Smith and James Cromwell.
In the original Jurassic Park, Dr. Ian Malcolm came to the park as an insurance consultant who made it clear that he was against the idea of mankind recreating dinosaurs from the beginning. He would return for the sequel four years later, leading a research expedition to a second island filled with genetically engineered prehistoric beasts. The character would also play a significant role in both of the original novels from the late Michael Crichton.
The Jurassic World sequel arrives in theatres on June 22, 2018.
