The Hollywood Reporter is – well, reporting – that Jeff Goldblum has finalized a deal to appear in Jurassic World 2. Dr. Ian Malcolm is back, folks.
“Yeah. ‘Ooh, ah,’ that’s how it always starts. But then later there’s running and screaming.”
We have absolutely no idea how prominent of a role Goldblum will be playing in the sequel. But hopefully he’s enthused to jump back into the character and he and Chris Pratt develop a fun rapport.
Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm was last seen as the lead in The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Many years have passed between the events of that film and the catastrophe at Jurassic World. It’ll be interesting, but probably obvious, to see how Malcolm reacts during his screen time within Jurassic World 2.
Jurassic World 2 returns Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and B.D. Wong as stars. It’s set to premiere June 22nd, 2018.
