There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

‘Jurassic World 3’ Adds DeWanda Wise in Leading Role!

Hot off the heels of yesterdays announcement that Mamoudou Athie has joined the third Jurassic World film, Variety now reports that DeWanda Wise has also been added to the growing cast! While no plot or character details are available, it is reported that DeWanda Wise will sport a leading role in the upcoming sequel.

DeWanda is best known for her role as Nola Darling on Netlfix’s ‘She’s Gotta Have It’, and has also appeared in a recent episode of the Twilight Zone resurgence titled ‘Six Degrees of Freedom’.

Wise joins Jurassic Park veterans Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum alongside ‘World’s’ Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. BD Wong and Isabella Sermon are also expected to return in the next Jurassic film. While the plot remains tightly under wraps, dinosaurs are now part of our world, no longer contained on islands, and the story is expected to start from that focal point.

Jurassic World 3 is well into pre-production at London’s Pinewood Studios, where it is slated to begin filming early next year. Colin Trevorrow and Emily Carmichael have written the script, with Trevorrow returning to direct. The film is scheduled to release June of 2021.

  1. I would have never considered it until I saw comments elsewhere raising the possibility, but is there a chance that she might be playing a grown-up Kelly from ‘The Lost World’? I mean, it IS within the realm of possibility, considering Malcolm is returning and it takes place off-island. That would be very interesting, if so, and I wouldn’t be mad about it. If not, she could be anything from a scientist, someone who is pro-purchasing dinosaurs, a civilian caught in the mayhem, etc.

  2. I’m just wondering how many leading role positions they are planning to have on this film. We already have Chris and Bryce, and Goldblum, Neill and Dern have also been announced to have more than secondary appearances (which is great). I guess the story of Maisie will also need proper closure.

    Anyway, hope it doesn’t all end up being superficial.

    1. They need to cover nostalgia, funny, famous and inclusiveness… All to distract from the TERRIBLE writing. Overwhelm you with an onslaught of “personalities” to keep the masses happy. Meanwhile the fans get screwed again. Surprised they haven’t brought Dwayne Johnson onboard…

  3. I have no idea who this nor do I care, just like I already forgot about the screaming (failed) comic-relief sidekick in JW2, these characters have a absolutely nill added value. I’m still waiting for some unknown Chinese actor to join the cast (to please the Chinese market).

  4. I am worried that they are following the recent sequel trend of scale over quality. They’re already bringing the main characters of JP back in “major roles”, so unless Chris Pratt and BDH get shoved to the sideline, I don’t see how they can properly implement even more “leading roles” into the film.

    It seems like they’re going to try to copy Endgame’s method of having a bunch of different storylines running parallel to eachother, and I just don’t think that will work for a Jurassic movie. It’s either going to end up being too wordy, or it will turn into a game of “how many CGI dinosaurs can we render on screen at once?”.
