Sam Neill shared in a well thought out Instagram post his excitement in coming back for Jurassic World 3.
The New Zealand actor posted a throwback photo of himself, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern on what seemed like a photo shoot from the first Jurassic Park movie back in 1993. Neill will be returning alongside Goldblum and Dern in their iconic roles as Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler, and the eccentric but quirky Dr. Ian Malcolm in the latest installment of the Jurassic World franchise in much more bigger roles.
Neill expressed how excited he was in his Instagram post that it will be a great time working with Dern and Goldblum again and the experience to work with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the franchise’s new faces.
“We always had a ball on the previous, and are sure to again. They are the bestest of best company.”
Goldblum also expressed his jubilance in Instagram about the news that he will be reuniting with his Jurassic Park co-stars for Jurassic World 3. Sharing the same photo as Neill’s the actor expressed that he was ‘happy as a clam-asaurus’ in classic Jeff Goldblum fashion. He also echoed one of his famous lines from the original film,
“You did it. You crazy son of a bitch, you did it.” Tell me you didn’t read that in Goldblum’s voice.
Director Colin Trevorrow announced that the trio of Neill, Goldblum, and Dern will be returning in a much bigger capacity compared to Goldblum’s cameo in Fallen Kingdom and Dern’s appearance in Jurassic Park 3. The director shared last September in a Jurassic World screening that the original trio will be on board on much bigger roles compared to their previous involvement.
Trevorrow also stated in an exclusive interview with Empire about how the film will carry on the legacy of the original films and why it was imperative that they brought back the original Jurassic Park trio. He explained that they had to give a valid reason why Alan Grant, Ian Malcolm, and Ellie Sattler came back to the park on the same day where everything went down in chaos.
“The next film allows the legacy characters to be a part of the story in an organic way. Emily Carmichael and I call it ‘Jurassic Park IV’, because it is.” he added.
Besides being the director, Trevorrow will also be an executive producer alongside Steven Spielberg. The director also co-wrote the screenplay together with Emily Carmichael who wrote for movies like Pacific Rim: Uprising and The Black Hole based on the scripts that Trevorrow and Derek Connolly wrote for the first two installments of the Jurassic World franchise.
