Hold on to your butts because it sounds like Jeff Goldblum may not be the only original cast member returning for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom as a new rumor is seemingly placing Sam Neill on-set...

"They're moving in herds... They do move in herds"

Ever since Universal announced Jurassic World and its upcoming sequels, fans have been clamoring to see some of their favorites from the original trilogy return, especially Sam Neill (Alan Grant), Laura Dern (Ellie Sattler), and Jeff Goldblum (Ian Malcolm). Now, while next year's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom made good on bringing back Dr. Ian Malcolm, who's expected back for a cameo of sorts, there's been radio silence regarding the other two flagship characters. However, there may be good reason for that.

Now, take this with a big grain of salt, but according to a source for our good friend Mr. Sunday Movies, Sam Neill may have actually paid a visit to Pinewood Studios in London - or Shepperton Studios to be exact - in late August, which is coincidentally exactly where J.A. Bayona filmed Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. He reportedly arrived via a blacked out van and was apparently sporting the same look as his Hunt for the Wilderpeople character, which, in layman's terms, means he probably had a beard.

We reported back in July that stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard had completed principal photography on the highly-anticipated sequel, but considering that a film of this magnitude will have months and months of extensive post-production work, there would certainly be more than enough time to fit in a special cameo (or two) without much fanfare if they so chose to do so. 

Once again, we implore you to take this report with a huge grain of salt.

Also, be sure to check out Mr. Sunday's awesome trailer breakdown below (or skip ahead to the 5:14 mark for the potentially major scoop): 

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
