Sequels, uh, find a way.
While the franchise isn’t technically horror, most genre fans have a soft spot in their hearts for the Jurassic Park/World movies. I mean, what Horror Freak doesn’t love watching giant monsters eating people and scaring the hell out of children? Delightful! A sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World is in the works, and we’re just getting news that a familiar face from the early days is going back to the island: Dr. Malcolm!
Jeff Goldblum is returning to the land of dinosaurs. The actor, who co-starred in 1993’s Jurassic Park and 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park, will appear in Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s next Jurassic World film. J. A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) is directing the next installment in the studio’s hit franchise. Jurassic World earned $1.67 billion worldwide in 2015 and is the fourth-highest-grossing film in history.

Dr. Ian Malcolm is a fictional mathematician and self-professed “chaotician,” a title which he uses to describe his work in applying Chaos Theory to practical real-life scenarios. He is based on a character in the best-selling novels “Jurassic Park,” and “The Lost World,” by Michael Crichton and is portrayed in the films Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park by Jeff Goldblum.
As a huge fan of David Cronenberg’s body horror masterpiece The Fly (released in 1986), I’ve always considered Goldblum something of a horror icon. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be returning to reprise their 2015 Jurassic World roles.
Check out the trailer and Synopsis for Jurassic World below.
Official Synopsis: Located off the coast of Costa Rica, the Jurassic World luxury resort provides a habitat for an array of genetically engineered dinosaurs, including the vicious and intelligent Indominus rex. When the massive creature escapes, it sets off a chain reaction that causes the other dinos to run amok. Now, it’s up to a former military man and animal expert (Chris Pratt) to use his special skills to save two young brothers and the rest of the tourists from an all-out, prehistoric assault.
