Scarlett Johansson Being Considered for Starring Role in Upcoming ‘Jurassic World’ Sequel

Scarlett Johansson is set to join the cast of Universal’s upcoming new Jurassic World movie. The actor recently attended the June 13 premiere of ‘Asteroid City’ in NYC.

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Scarlett Johansson is currently in negotiations to join the cast of the new Jurassic World film, which is set for release on July 2, 2025. Gareth Edwards has been selected to direct the project, which features a script written by David Koepp, who previously worked on Jurassic Park.

Scarlett Johansson’s latest role will see her return to the world of franchises after her successful stint as Black Widow in various Marvel Studios films. Despite her success in the superhero genre, she has been able to establish herself in other projects as well. Johansson has received two Oscar nominations for her work in Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit and also has a voice role in the upcoming animated feature Transformers One and is set to star alongside Channing Tatum in a big-budget Apple film releasing this year.

The latest Jurassic World film is part of a franchise that began with Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park in 1993, based on Michael Crichton’s novel. The original film was followed by a sequel, The Lost World (1997), directed by Spielberg, and Jurassic Park III (2001) directed by Joe Johnston. The trilogy was revived with Jurassic World in 2015, which grossed $1.67 billion and led to sequels Fallen Kingdom (2018) and Dominion (2022). Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard were the leads in the trilogy overseen by filmmaker Colin Trevorrow.
