Actor James Cromwell has revealed that Jurassic World 2 will tie directly back to Steven Spielberg’s classic sci-fi adventure thriller Jurassic Park.
The actor best known for his roles in Babe as well as the film noir crime drama L.A. Confidential was revealed to have joined the cast of the Jurassic sequel back in February.
During a recent chat on Larry King Now, Cromwell was asked about his role in the upcoming film which is currently in production when he revealed that his character will connect back to John Hammond, the CEO and creator of the original Jurassic Park portrayed by Academy Award winning actor Richard Attenborough who passed away back in 2014:
“The character Richard Attenborough played, I’m his partner, Benjamin Lockwood. We developed the technology of being able to clone the genes. And so I’m trying to deal with the blowback from what we have done.”
Not only will the film be hearkening back to the original blockbuster with Cromwell, Jeff Goldblum who played the self-professed “chaotician” Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park was recently announced to be returning for the sequel and BD Wong will once again appear as Dr. Henry Wu.
In addition, director J.A. Bayona will also be bringing back the use of animatronics and practical effects which could be a return to form for the dino-rampaging franchise.
Plot details on the upcoming sequel are still under wraps but both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be returning as Owen and Claire as the franchise continues the storyline of weaponized dinosaurs introduced in Jurassic World.
The sequel has also added Toby Jones, Justice Smith, Rafe Spall, Ted Levine, Daniella Pineda, and Geraldine Chaplin into the mix.
Jurassic World 2 is slated to hit theaters on June 22, 2018.
