Jeff Goldblum will be reprising his role as mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm for the third time in the follow-up to 2015’s Jurassic World.
In 1993, Dr Ian Malcolm was drafted to sign-off on the dinosaur theme park with fellow experts. Then in 1997 sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, he was hired to stop the dinosaurs being captured and brought back to the mainland.
Jurassic World 2, the current title of the sequel in question is being directed by J A Bayona, best known for The Impossible and a Monster Calls. It is still unknown how Malcolm will fit alongside Chris Pratt being Owen Grady- dinosaur tamer and Bryce Dallas Howard’s theme park executive Claire Dearing; who were new characters in Jurassic World.
Jeff Goldblum, who welcomed his second child earlier this month, was spotted in Sydney. According to news.com.au, he told fans he was unable to say why he was in the country. He also gave hope to his fans saying, “Its kind of a secret, a mystery – i can’t divulge. I wish I could say but I think very soon you will know. You may be less surprised than you think.”
Colin Trevorrow, who directed Jurassic World has written the script with Derek Conolly and will produce it alongside Frank Marshall, Pat Crowley and Steven Spielberg. The sequel will also star Justice Smith, James Cormwell, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall and B D Wong, who played scientist Dr Henry Wu in the original and the 2015 movie.
Jeff is no stranger when it comes to reprising older characters he once played like he played the same character in the Independence resurgence as the original Independence day. He relived this character after 20 years of the original Independence day. Considering this, stepping into his own shoes for Jurassic World sequel should be piece of cake.
The sequel is to be released on June 22, 2018. Principal photography has already begun since February. Filming is scheduled to take place in Hawaii and various English locations.
