Recently it was announced that Mamoudou Athie would be joining the cast of Jurassic World III. Another name has just been added to the growing Jurassic ensemble, actress DeWanda Wise.
DeWanda Wise, best known for her breakout role in Netflix’s “She’s Gotta Have It,” has landed a leading role in the third installment of Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s “Jurassic World” saga.
She joins Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who will reprise their roles from the previous films, as well as Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, who starred in the original mega-hit “Jurassic Park.” Mamoudou Athie also recently joined the cast.
Colin Trevorrow, who helmed the first “Jurassic World,” is returning to direct the pic, which he co-wrote with Emily Carmichael. The script is based on a story by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, who penned the previous two scripts. The recent casting news comes on the heels of Trevorrow’s “Jurassic World” short film “Battle at Big Rock,” which earned rave reviews and a massive response from Social media in anticipation of the next film.
