He certainly seemed curious about Bryce Dallas Howard’s response to the question on everyone’s lips concerning the franchise. When he was told what she said, he mirrored it. The IMDb host had just interviewed Howard about her documentary Dads, also premiering at TIFF. Check out her words about Sam Neill’s involvement:Turns out, she’d never met him before! As a huge fan of him and the franchise, she admitted she’d driven by his house once. When she was asked how they were going to get him for Jurassic World 3, she went completely silent and flashed quite the suspicious look our way. The silence is deafening!! Hopefully the two did get a chance to finally meet between interviews and exchange dino stories!
Okay – so we still don’t know a lot about what’s going on, but much of the cast has hinted a thing or two about the possibility of the original cast returning. Jurassic World 3’s writer/director Colin Trevorrow said this about the upcoming release:
"Pretty Woman." Edward (Richard Gere) snapping the necklace case down on Vivian's (Julia Roberts) fingers, was improvised by Gere, and Roberts's reaction (laughter) was totally natural. The filmmakers liked it so much, they decided to leave it in.
Trevorrow previously brought back Jeff Goldblum’s Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom for a small scene. Laura Dern has shown enthusiasm for returning to Dr. Ellie Sattler, quipping she “could never say no,” though admitting she had no idea whether she’d be asked to return. Wouldn’t it be glorious to see Ellie and Dr. Alan Grant back in a Jurassic movie?
It’s a celebration of everything that has existed in the franchise up until now… I can confirm nothing. But nothing would make me happier than to be able to work with any of those people.
It might still be too early for the cast to have all been called and given the rundown on Jurassic World 3. The film isn’t set to start filming until spring 2020 and will be released on June 11, 2021.
