Original Jurassic Park Cast Likely To Return After Jurassic World 3

Ever since the Jurassic Park franchise returned in 2015 with Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, one of the main criticisms of the most recent installments was an over-reliance on nostalgia. Obviously, that’s something of a recurring theme in today’s studio blockbusters given the mixed reactions to the latest Star Wars and Terminator movies, but there’s always been a fine line between breathing new life into an established brand and simply rehashing what came before.

Jurassic World may have introduced a fresh batch of characters and featured a fully-functioning park on Isla Nublar, but it still relied heavily on recognizable locations and iconography from the past. Follow-up Fallen Kingdom tried to remedy this by blowing up the whole island during the first act, but it still came off as a little too similar to original sequel The Lost World, this time with a mansion substituted in for the entire city of San Diego.

Original Jurassic Park Kids Want To Return For Jurassic World 3

Jurassic World 3 is looking better and better every day, and it’s not even slated to hit theaters until June of 2021. Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neill, and Laura Dern will be bringing back the original team of mathematician Ian Malcolm, Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler, that much is a fact. You better cross your fingers though, because the kids from the original movies say they’re also open to returning.

Almost immediately upon hearing about the return of the Og three, fans went nuts and started campaigning for them to make their way back to the franchise, too. We use the term “kids” loosely here, though, as Joseph Mazzello and Ariana Richards are now 36 and 40 years old, respectively. They played Tim and Lex, grandchildren to Richard Attenborough’s John Hammond, in the original film. We lost Attenborough in 2014, and seeing how pretty much every other main character from

David Crow Aug 9, 2019

A G.I. Joe’s work is never done, as a new shared universe spinoff is in development, this one featuring Chuckles.

Yo, Joe, you got more fight in you, you know? And knowing, as they say, is half the battle. The G.I.

Joe: Retaliation, with one spinoff in the works for next year centered on the character of Snake Eyes. Now The Hollywood Reporter revealed late Friday that Paramount Pictures is developing a second mysterious G.I. Joe spinoff.

What is currently known about the project is that Paramount has tapped Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec to write a screenplay for the new picture. The pair have a friendly history working on franchises for Paramount, having previously contributed to
