Jeff Goldblum Confirmed To Return As Dr. Ian Malcolm In JURASSIC WORLD Sequel

"Life, uh... finds a way." - Here's some monumental news to end your Tuesday, as the original Jurassic Park star has been confirmed to reprise his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World 2!

"God creates dinosaurs, God destroys dinosaurs. God creates Man, Man destroys god. Man creates dinosaurs."

Twenty-five years after making his debut as Dr. Ian Malcolm in the original Steven Spielberg masterpiece Jurassic Park, Academy Award-nominee Jeff Goldblum is returning to the land of dinosaurs for round three.

In a late night scoop, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Goldblum will reprise his role as the fan-favorite Malcolm in Universal Pictures' upcoming Jurassic World sequel, his first apperance in the billion-dollar franchise since 1997's The Lost World: Jurassic Park

He's now the second original cast member to rejoin the franchise after B.D. Wong (Gotham), who appeared as Dr. Henry Wu in the 2015 blockbuster and will also return in the sequel. Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) and Bryce Dallas Howard (Black Mirror) are headlining the feature, which is being helmed by the acclaimed J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls; The Impossible), who's utilizing a script from Colin Trevorrow & Derek Connolly.

Whether or not this most recent development will lead to the returns of fellow original trilogy stars Sam Neill (The Hunt for the Wilderpeople) as Dr. Alan Grant and Laura Dern (Big Little Lies) as Dr. Ellie Sattler remains to be seen, but it certainly can't be ruled out with Malcolm back in the mix.

Goldblum has a pretty big year ahead of him as he steps into the role of the Grandmaster in Marvel Studios' fall release Thor: Ragnarok. After that, you'll be able to hear his voice work in Wes Anderson's animated feature Isle of Dogs, which bows April 2018. His recent credits include The Grand Budapest Hotel, Mortdecai, The LeagueUnbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Independence Day: Resurgence
