News arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that James Cromwell (The Artist) is set to join the cast of the Jurassic World (2015) sequel.
Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) is directing the film, which will see Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard back as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing, but beyond their return, nothing is known about the story, which is one again by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.
Bayona has been busy gathering an eclectic cast, with Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger), Rafe Spall (Prometheus), Justice Smith (Paper Towns), Daniel Pineda (The Originals) and Ted Levine (Silence Of The Lambs) all recruited. The cameras will be rolling this year, with the film scheduled to arrive on 8 June 2018.
Cromwell will be seen later this year in biopic Marshall.
