While talking to The Huffington Post about his role in Wes Anderson’s upcoming The Grand Budapest Hotel, Jeff Goldblum was asked about whether or not he wanted to return to the “Jurassic Park” franchise with the upcoming Jurassic World.
Ian Malcolm may have been one of the most popular characters from the first two movies, but as one might expect, the casting for the upcoming reboot seems to be set in place and they seem to be getting away from the characters that appeared in the first three movies. Goldblum told them that he was never called to appear in Jurassic Park III either, but that he was happy with the two movies he did.
More importantly, Goldblum also confirmed what Roland Emmerich had been saying last year about bringing his character David Levinson back for Independence Day 2:
“Yeah, they’ve talked to me about it and I’ve talked to them about it and they’re excited and I’m anxious and eager to see — I haven’t read anything — what they cook up. You know, I think they’re trying to put it together.”
Look for more news on both of these anticipated sequels to popular ’90s blockbusters in the coming months.
