Bryce Dallas Howard ‘confirms’ original Jurassic Park cast WILL return for Jurassic World 3

Bryce Dallas Howard has teased that Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum will appear in Jurassic World 3.

The three actors led the cast of 1993’s original movie, Jurassic Park, but have not appeared as a trio in any of the subsequent sequels.

But speaking on the red carpet for a screening of her latest film Rocketman last week, the actress teased that the franchise is about to give fans what they want.

Chatting to MTV about what will be the sixth movie in the franchise, the 38-year-old was asked if she was excited about the prospect of sharing scenes with the ‘OG Jurassic’ cast.

She replied: ‘Yes, very much so, if that happens, I don’t know what’s been confirmed or whatever but I’ll blink if it’s happening, maybe.’

And then she blinked, emphatically – seemingly confirming the rumours.

Jurassic Park saw Neill and Dern playing paleontologist Dr Alan Grant and paleobotanist Dr Ellie Sattler respectively, who were invited to ‘road test’ John Hammond’s [Richard Attenborough] theme park, in which he had revived dinosaurs.

The three characters survived the inevitable disaster that took place at the park, which saw the power fail and the animals escape from their enclosures, feel free to roam – and kill – as they pleased.

Goldblum reprised his role for The Lost World: Jurassic Park, the sequel, released in 1997 – again, surviving another disaster, this time on a different island, with mostly new characters introduced.

Neill and Dern both returned for Jurassic Park III. Neill led the cast once again, while Dern played a smaller role, involved with any of the dinosaur action but managing to save the day at the end of the movie.

None of the actors from Jurassic Park appeared when the series was rebooted in 2015 by new director Colin Trevorrow, with Jurassic World – this time about a fully-fuctioning rebuilt park, now open to the public – except for B D Wong, who played Dr Henry Woo in the 1993 original.

Wong featured in 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which featured a plot dealing with the aftermath of Jurassic World [which saw yet another disaster strike the park, forcing it to be shut down indefinitely]. Goldblum also cropped up again in this fifth film.

Goldblum’s role saw Dr Malcolm giving his expert opinion at a hearing debating an impending volcano eruption on the original island, which was threatening to wipe out all of the surviving dinosaurs.

The cameo was limited to two brief appearances at the start and end of the film – with fans desperate to see more of him in the upcoming Jurassic World 3.

The sixth film is set for a June 2021 release and doesn’t have an official title as of yet, with Trevorrow currently working on the script.

Rumours that the original cast would return first rumbled in 2018 after the Fallen Kingdom release, when Howard said she would be ‘excited’ if Jurassic World 3 would ‘have more characters from the original films’, specifically saying it would be ‘incredible’ for Dern to make a comeback.

Chris Pratt – who stars alongside Howard in the latest two movies and will be back for the next one – also fueled rumours, saying in February, ‘you will not be disappointed,’ when asked if Dern and co would be involved.

In April, Dern herself said: ‘I mean, I love Dr Ellie Sattler so I could never say no to [a return] on any level.’

Goldblum also said of the next film: ‘I’m curious about it. If nothing else happened, I’d be entirely satisfied and nourished and lucky and thrilled to have done all of this. If I can be of any service, that’s my posture and authentic feeling.

‘I’ve kind of nosed around, ’cause I’ve had such a great time [working on Fallen Kingdom], and [Trevorrow] is so good. He’s awful good. I’d like to work with him more on anything.’
