Scarlett Johansson set to star in new Jurassic World movie, while Asteroid City premieres in NYC

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

Scarlett Johansson recently attended the premiere of ‘Asteroid City’ in NYC. Meanwhile, Universal Pictures has set a release date of July 2, 2025 for their upcoming new Jurassic World movie. The actor is currently in negotiations to join the cast of this project.

Gareth Edwards has been selected to direct the new Jurassic World movie, which features a script written by David Koepp. Koepp previously worked on the original Jurassic Park and has returned to write this sequel. Edwards replaced David Leitch as director after Leitch left the project shortly after joining.

This new project will see Scarlett Johansson returning to the world of franchises after her successful run as Black Widow in various Marvel Studios films. Despite her success in superhero genre, she has established herself in other projects as well. Johansson has received two Oscar nominations for her work in Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit. She also has voice roles in an 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.
