Jeff Goldblum Returning for JURASSIC WORLD Sequel

Adjust Comment Print

The veteran actor previously expressed his interest in joining Jurassic installments previous year, telling fans and press, "Maybe" when asked if he would ever return to reprise his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm in the classic film.

Goldblum played Dr Ian Malcolm, a know-it-all mathematician, who came to the park as an insurance consultant in 1993's Jurassic Park and its 1997 sequel The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

World oil demand growth in 2016 was kept broadly unchanged at 1.38 million barrels per day (mb/d), averaging 95.05 mb/d. The surprise build, along with an increase in United States output and imports from OPEC, pressured prices.

The as-yet-untitled Jurassic World sequel - the fifth instalment in the franchise - is due to be released in June 2018. The Oscar-nominated actor was not even approached for a role in 2015 "Jurassic World". The news that Goldblum will be back for the next flick comes after years of hopeful speculation among fans - and more than a few teases. "I was doing the Thor movie on the Gold Coast some time ago, but now I'm doing a project that I have to be secretive about but there is some thematic tie-in to this".

We'll have to wait another year to see the dashing doctor cracking wise alongside co-stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, whose performances in Jurassic World helped cement the franchise's future. The cast also includes B.D Wong, Toby Jones and James Cromwell. Universal shouldn't have a problem making its next dinosaur movie a commercial success - "Jurassic World" took in almost $1.7 billion worldwide - but if the studio wants this sequel to outperform expectations, it needs someone like Goldblum. J.A. Bayona is on board to direct with Frank Marshall producing along with Pat Crowley and Belén Atienza.
