The cast for Jurassic World 2 is starting to get bigger. The sequel has officially added Justice Smith (The Get Down) into the mix, Variety reports. Character details are sparse but sources close to Variety claim Smith has been cast as a young scientist in the film.
Recently the film also added Armin Zola himself, Toby Jones and Rafe Spall (Life of Pi, Black Mirror) in unknown roles. The plot is still currently a mystery but chances are it will be another disingenuine cash grab from executive producer Frank Marshall and co. while myself and other die-hard Jurassic Park fans clutch their chest as they pray to not have a heart attack over how upset they are as they watch a bunch of characters they don’t care about get chased around by CG dinosaurs.
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are confirmed to return. Marshall also recently hinted at the return of BD Wong’s character, Dr. Henry Wu when he told cinemablend “When they take off in helicopters, you know they’re probably going to come back.”
Colin Trevorrow, director of the first Jurassic World took to twitter this morning to joke about the backlash against the film regarding the backlash against Howard running through the jungle from dinosaurs in a pair of nude Sam Eldman heels.
This means the most substantial detail regarding the plot of Jurassic World 2 is currently that Bryce Dallas Howard will be sporting a pair of brown boots.
Jurassic World 2 hits theaters June 22, 2018.
Produced by Universal Pictures. Directed by J.A. Bayona (When A Monster Calls).
