Jurassic World: Dominion Star Jeff Goldblum Offers Update on Delayed Sequel
Jurassic World: Dominion star Jeff Goldblum has offered an update on where the sequel currently stands.
Co-writer and director Colin Trevorrow had just started production on the third film in the Jurassic World series when the whole industry was forced to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Goldblum was originally due to return to set alongside Jurassic Park cast members Sam Neill and Laura Dern in the coming days, but the work stoppage has obviously interrupted those plans.
While promoting his new Disney+ show on The Graham Norton Show on Friday night (May 1), the actor updated Norton by revealing he's rehearsing for Jurassic World: Dominion every day.
"We plan to, as much as anybody can, given our uncharted territory, we're all in touch," he explained. "I talk to Laura Dern, and Sam Neill, and Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and the wonderful director Colin Trevorrow, who has written this third one and going to direct it.
"They had already done a bit of it. I wasn't in it yet. I was meant to leave this week to go to England, where it's all being shot! I would have been at Pinewood Studios right about now, but the calendar has changed.
"Every day I work on my part. This morning, I went over my interesting speeches and scenes, and so I'm very excited about it."
Norton joked that the actor should be "so good by the time it's finally made" with all that practice.
"Good or burnt out," Goldblum admitted. "Absolutely brittle."
The Jurassic World team are definitely planning for the future, having announced a competition this week that will allow one lucky fan to get chomped by a dinosaur in the sequel.
Jurassic World: Dominion has a release date of June 11, 2021.
