The casting for Jurassic World 3 has begun! While Legacy characters have already joined the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel, today’s news marks the first real sign of forward movement with casting a brand new lead character. Deadline reports that Mamoudou Athie has joined the sixth Jurassic Park film.
Mamoudou Athie is best known for his roles in Netflix’s ‘The Get Down’, the Facebook series ‘Sorry for Your Loss’, and the Emma Watson and Tom Hanks driven film ‘ The Circle’. Athie’s role in Jurassic World 3 remains unknown, as he joins alongside Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum. Jurassic World 3 has been penned by Colin Trevorrow and Emily Carmichael, with Trevorrow directing.
Pre-production has roared into full rampage at London’s Pinewood Studios, with filming scheduled to start February 2020. No plot details have been officially revealed at this time, though the recent ‘Battle at Big Rock’ sets the tone of where things will go as dinosaurs once again roam the earth.
