Jeff Goldblum Joins the Cast of Upcoming Jurassic World Sequel
This is not the time to be questioning whether or not scientists should be doing something! Although, it also isn’t the time to really be panicking. Overjoyed? We’ll go with that one. Recently, news broke from The Hollywood Reporter that actor Jeff Goldblum will be reprising his role as the apparently indestructible Dr. Ian Malcolm in the upcoming sequel to 2015’s mega hit Jurassic World. Wait, how did he, or anyone for that matter, survive the original films? Either way, fans are sure to be excited to see the mathematician back in action.
The last of Jeff Goldblum’s character that Jurassic fans saw was at the end of The Lost World, the second film in the franchise. He finally got to relax after having his reputation restored. When a dinosaur park goes awry, there’s bound to be some bad blood. After that, Dr. Ian Malcolm has only been mentioned by name, and a book or two of his can be seen on screen as recently as Jurassic World. There’s no word as to how involved his character will be this time, but he will undoubtedly be bringing his know-it-all attitude to the park. Maybe his role will have something to do with these eggs:

Jurassic World 2 will see the return of Owen(Chris Pratt) and Claire(Bryce Dallas Howard), and it will also star Justice Smith, James Cromwell, and Toby Jones. The film is set to be released on June 22, 2018, and it is being directed by J.A. Bayona(A Monster Calls). Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly wrote the script, and while the former directed Jurassic World, they might have taken a less involved role for the sequel to start thinking about upcoming projects. Trevorrow’s next directorial efforts will be The Book of Henry, which arrives this summer, and a small indie film that you’ve probably never heard of: Star Wars: Episode IX.
What say the moviegoers of the world? Excited that Jeff Goldblum will be bringing back the somewhat arrogant Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World 2? How involved will the chaotician be?
