“Jurassic World” Adds Vincent D’Onofrio As A VillainBy: Tobias Roth - March 1, 2014
News about the upcoming Jurassic World continues to surface, and whether people think they need another addition in the Jurassic Park series or not, it is coming in 2015.
The latest addition to the Jurassic World film is veteran actor Vincent D’Onofrio, who will play a villain in the film. Although his name may not be that recognizable to some people, many people will remember him as the villain from the original Men In Black film.
The original Jurassic Park that came out in 1993 starred Jeff Goldblum, and while he has been asked about the upcoming film in a recent interview, he said that he has not been called to appear in the film yet.
It is doubtful that fans will see an appearance from Goldblum’s popular character in the upcoming film, as the casting seems to be getting away from the characters from previous films, and will focus on a completely different plot. He did confirm that he will be seen in Independence Day 2 in the same interview, which was conducted in promotion of his new film, The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Jurassic World will be the fourth in the series, following Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World, and Jurassic Park III. Sam Neill and Laura Dern were also big stars in Jurassic Park, but will not be coming back for this film, although other recent stars have been cast for the film.
Before adding Vincent D’Onofrio, the cast had consisted of stars such as Chris Pratt, one of the stars of Parks And Recreation, and the recent star of The Lego Movie, as well as Bryce Dallas Howard, and Jake Johnson from New Girl.
Several names have also been rumored during the early development stages of the film, and with a franchise Jurassic Park, it is not surprising that everyone would want to get involved. The film is set to be released on June 12th, 2015.

The new film clearly will not be able to match the quality of Jurassic Park, a film that has been a favorite for people over the years. However, some fans will certainly get excited for another film in the franchise, and it will be out in just over a year.
Jurassic World will be directed by Colin Trevorrow, who previously directed Jake Johnson once already in the 2012 comedy Safety Not Guaranteed. Jurassic Park‘s director, Steven Spielberg, is also on board as a producer.
