Jurassic World 2 cast adds Toby Jones and Rafe Spall
Variety brings word of the first additions to the Jurassic World 2 cast with actors Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger, The Hunger Games) and Rafe Spall (Prometheus, Shaun of the Dead) joining the sequel. It’s unclear who they will play in the film, though dino-chow is a fair guess.
The Impossible and A Monster Calls director J.A. Bayona will direct the Jurassic World sequel from a script by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. Trevorrow decided to hand over the director’s chair for the sequel, opting to journey to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: Episode IX. He previously revealed the quote from the original Jurassic Park that inspired their idea for the sequel, which comes from Sam Neil’s Alan Grant: “Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by 65 million years of evolution have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea what to expect?”
The pair join Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who will both reprise their roles for the film. Frank Marshall and Steven Spielberg will produce the film, which is set for release on June 22, 2018.
Released in 2015, Jurassic World brought in over $652 million at the domestic box office and over $1.67 billion worldwide.
