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.
