Another actor is joining the Jurassic World 3 cast, and this one isn’t a returning cast member from the franchise. Actor Mamoudou Athie is joing the third Jurassic World film in what it said to be a significant role.
Mamoudou Athie, who currently co-stars on the Facebook series, Sorry for Your Loss, has landed a lead role in Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment ’s Jurassic World 3. He’s set to star opposite returning cast members Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum.
Colin Trevorrow will direct once again. He co-wrote the script with Emily Carmichael based on a story he crafted with Derek Connolly, who worked with him on the screenplay for Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are returning to produce the sequel with Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow serving as executive producers. The Jurassic franchise, which launched in 1993, celebrated its 25th-anniversary last year and has grossed more than $5 billion collectively at the worldwide box office.
