Jeff Goldblum returns to play Dr Ian Malcolm in 'Jurassic World' sequel

Goldblum played Dr Ian Malcolm, a know-it-all mathematician, who came to the park as an insurance consultant in 1993's Jurassic Park and its 1997 sequel The Lost World: Jurassic Park. But he did not appear in Jurassic Park III (2001) or the most recent installment of the franchise, Jurassic World. "If I never did anything more, I'd certainly be well satisfied", Goldblum told Fandango early previous year.

It's pretty understandable how Jurassic World 2 is trying to make deeper connections with the original Jurassic Park - the film is set in the same universe after all.

"They're doing spectacularly well without me".

Ajit Pai explains how and why the FCC will kill Net Neutrality
Now, he's pledging to undo them, swapping in voluntary, self-governed "We'll keep an eye on us" promises from companies instead. But because this is a partisan issue with Republicans having a 2-to-1 majority on the commission, his plan is likely to pass.

The untitled "Jurassic World" sequel is slated to arrive in theaters in June 2018.

Following a pair of terribly reviewed films, David Koepp's "Mortdecai" (2015) and Roland Emmerich "Independence Day: Resurgence" (2016), Goldblum will appear later this year in his first superhero movie as Grandmaster in Taika Waititi's highly anticipated "Thor: Ragnarok", and there's nothing like a major role in a Marvel movie to jumpstart your career. Other cast members include Justice Smith as a young scientist, as well as Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Ted Levine, and Daniella Pineda in still unclassified roles.

The script for the next chapter of the franchise comes from Colin Trevorrow, who directed the box office busting 'Jurassic World, ' and Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Steven Spielberg are returning to produce the film, which has JA Bayona (When a Monster Calls, The Impossible) in the director's chair.
