Scarlett Johansson Returns to Franchises with New Jurassic World Movie Announcement

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

Scarlett Johansson recently attended the premiere of ‘Asteroid City’ in NYC. The actor, who is known for her work in franchises such as Marvel Studios’ Black Widow, has been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter to be joining the cast of Universal’s upcoming new Jurassic World movie.

Universal has set a release date of July 2, 2025 for the film and is moving fast on its production. Gareth Edwards has been selected to direct the new Jurassic World movie, which features a script written by David Koepp, who previously worked on Jurassic Park. Edwards replaced David Leitch as director after Leitch left the project shortly after joining.

Johansson’s return to the world of franchises comes after her success in other projects as well. She has received two Oscar nominations for her work in Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit and has a voice role in the upcoming animated feature Transformers One. She is also 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.
