Toby Jones in talks to join cast of Jurassic World sequel

So, whether we like or not, JURASSIC WORLD is getting a sequel. Because, unlike the characters in a JURASSIC PARK movie, the producers of the franchise haven't learned to stop tampering in God's domain and leave well enough alone. Maybe we can have another tag-team dino match at the end, only this time it's Hell in the Cell!

As pre-production ramps up, casting news has started to ramp up as well. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning to star (natch), but none other than Arnim Zola himself, Toby Jones, in in talks to join them. No word yet if he'll play an evil scientist, but one can only hope.

Rafe Spall (that one guy in PROMETHEUS) is also a contender for a mystery role as well.

Now, I wasn't a fan of JURASSIC WORLD (though I know there are many out there), although I'm still up for more dino action (especially if recent reports are true that it'll be darker and scarier). Let's just hope it ditches the "park" angle (I mean, it's called JURASSIC WORLD now for Christ's sake) and have the dinos attack a city or something. Honestly, anything new at all (hell, even that scrapped weird dinosaur-hybrid soldier idea is preferable at this point).

Anyway, JURASSIC WORLD 2, directed by J.A. Bayona (WHEN A MONSTER CALLS), will stomp into theaters June 22nd, 2018.

Extra Tidbit: James Cameron and Tim Burton (!) were both considered to direct the first JURASSIC PARK at one point or another.

Theres only so much you can do with dinos

"Have them attack a city?" The T-Rex already did that in Lost Word: JP
Then again, we never did find out what happened to those flying dinosaurs in JP3
If you want to ditch the 'Park' angle then have a valuable mcgguffin on the island and the only way to get to it is to battle the dinos first, but then again Lost World: JP made it look so easy (and badass) in rounding them up.
Unless you make it an 'every-man' survival story by having a bunch of convicts (think Con Air meets that one

Unless you make it an 'every-man' survival story by having a bunch of convicts (think Con Air meets that one scene in US Marshals) crash land on the island and have trust & allegiances among themselves pushed to the extreme. Though why the plane was in JP airspace is anyone's guess.

Fantastic!

Toby Jones is so great and he totally deserves to be a part of this franchise. Definitely gets me even more excited for this movie.
