Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and Sam Neill will reprise their “Jurassic Park” roles in the upcoming “Jurassic World 3.”
Their castings were announced Tuesday night by executive producer and director Colin Trevorrow at a screening of “Jurassic World” attended by Dern. While Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm appeared in 2018’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” Dern and Neill haven’t been back with the dinosaurs since 2001’s “Jurassic Park III.”
All originated their roles in the 1993 original “Jurassic Park.”
Trevorrow, who helmed 2015’s “Jurassic World,” will direct the next installment following J.A. Bayona’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” Those two films grossed $1.67 billion and $1.3 billion, respectively.
“Jurassic World 3,” starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, is to be released in June 2021.
Rock Hall retirement
Jann Wenner will retire next year as chairman of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation in New York.
Wenner announced Wednesday that he will step down Jan. 1. The co-founder and publisher of Rolling Stone magazine is one of the founding members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and is credited with recruiting the late architect I.M. Pei to create its Cleveland museum.
The annual induction ceremony is a major concert event that is broadcast by HBO.
The 73-year-old Wenner will be replaced by rock hall board member John Sykes, the co-founder MTV and VH1.
Wenner will remain on the board of directors.
Bruce Springsteen and Mick Jagger praised Wenner in a statement for having the foresight to build the hall of fame into a major cultural institution.
“A long time ago, when no one was thinking about our music and its posterity, Jann saw that we needed a place to celebrate popular music and recognize the people who had made the music grow. It was a visionary idea and he stuck with it,” Jagger said in a statement.
“He built a beautiful and credible home for our history and deserves our appreciation and respect for this tremendous accomplishment,” Springsteen said.
