Will Sam Neill Return as Dr. Alan Grant in JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM
We already know that Jeff Goldblum is reprising his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. We got our first look at him in the first trailer released for the film. At this point in the process, I didn't expect to see any other interesting news to be released on the film. But a new rumor has surfaced that says Sam Neill might actually return on Dr. Alan Grant in the film as well, which would be really cool if true.
The rumor comes from Mr. Sunday Movies, who says Sam Neill paid a visit to the set of the film in late August. He reportedly showed up in a blacked out van and was apparently sporting the same look as he did in the film Hunt for the Wilderpeople, like in the image you see above.
Take this news with a grain of salt, it's just a rumor, but it's not too far-fetched to think that director J.A. Bayona might throw in a Sam Neill cameo. This might be one of those things we won't find out for sure until after the movie is released.
While we wait for the film to hit theaters on June 22nd, 2018, Here's a video breakdown of the trailer that points out ten things you may have missed.
It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
