When Jurassic World rebooted the Jurassic Park franchise, the only original character we saw was Richard Attenborough’s John Hammond, and even then only in statue form. However, for the follow-up, Ian Malcolm will be back and once more in the form of Jeff Goldblum, according to THR.
It’s not known what role he will play in the movie, but it’s safe to say he’ll be back in know-it-all form, and probably once more suggesting the plans for the dinosaurs aren’t going to work out. However, having survived the first two movies, he’ll likely be a handy person to have around.
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be back for Jurassic World 2, and they’ll be joined by Justice Smith, James Cromwell and Toby Jones. J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) is directing, with a June 2018 release date set.
