Mostly thanks to Bryce Dallas Howard's social media feed, we know that the Jurassic World sequel is now busy shooting under the direction of Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible). And the filmmaker has added a regular collaborator to the cast, taking to Twitter himself to announce that Geraldine Chaplin (The Impossible) will appear in the film.
While we don't yet know who Chaplin will be playing (not a surprise given the cloak of secrecy around the production), she has been a near constant presence in Bayona's feature films since The Orphanage (2007), and most recently she cropped up as the head teacher in A Monster Calls (2017).
The movie already boasts the returning likes of Howard and Chris Pratt, plus new franchise faces Rafe Spall (Prometheus), Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger), Ted Levine (Shutter Island), James Cromwell (The Artist), Daniella Pineda (The Originals) and Justice Smith (The Get Down). As for the story, it is all a mystery for now, but there will no doubt be dinosaur chaos or people will be demanding their money back.
The Jurassic World (2015) sequel will be with us on 8 June 2018.
