We know already that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be back for the Jurassic World (2015) follow-up. Now director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) has zeroed in on two more actors, with news arriving via Variety that Rafe Spall (Prometheus) and Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger) are currently in talks to join.
Much of what the movie will be about – beyond the obvious ramifications of corporate plans for the dinosaurs and whatever else they get up to – is still being kept behind giant gates. Colin Trevorrow, who co-wrote and directed the first Jurassic World is back on script duty for this one, alongside fellow scribe Derek Connolly.
"It will be more suspenseful and scary," Trevorrow has told the Jurassic Outpost site. "It's just the way it's designed; it's the way the story plays out. I knew I wanted Bayona to direct it long before anyone ever heard that was a possibility, so the whole thing was just built around his skill set."
Obviously, Jones and Spall's characters are similarly under wraps, but according to Variety Bayona and producers have offered them their parts and are now starting an audition process to fill other cast roles.
Jurassic World 2 – or whatever the title ends up being – will be out in the UK on 8 June 2018. Jones last appeared on the small screen in Sherlock, while Spall can be seen in emotional true life drama Mum's List, out in cinemas now.
