Jurassic Park: Jeff Goldblum reprises role in sequel

Jeff Goldblum will reprise his Jurassic Park role in the upcoming sequel to the 2015 spin-off Jurassic World.

The 64-year-old actor will play sarcastic mathematician Dr Ian Malcolm for the third time in his career, after starring in the sequel The Lost World: Jurassic Park in 1997.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Goldblum will appear alongside Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the upcoming spin-off, directed by JA Bayona.

The Spanish filmmaker was behind the 2016 fantasy film A Monster Calls and the 2012 disaster movie The Impossible.

Colin Trevorrow, who directed Jurassic World, wrote the script for the sequel with Derek Connolly.

Jurassic World earned $1.67bn worldwide in 2015 and is the fourth-highest-grossing film in history.

It comes after Goldblum said he had not been asked to appear in Jurassic World and he was "entirely satisfied" with his work on the franchise.

"If I never did any more, I'd be entirely nourished and happy and fulfilled from having done these," he said.

"They're doing spectacularly well without me."

Later this year, Goldblum will appear in Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok as the Grandmaster - the first film since his latest box-office flop Independence Day: Resurgence.

The as-yet-untitled Jurassic World sequel - the fifth instalment in the franchise - is due to be released in June 2018
