Jeff Goldblum back for Independence Day 2, but not Jurassic World

February 27th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

While talking to The Huffington Post about his role in Wes Anderson’s upcoming The Grand Budapest Hotel, Jeff Goldblum was asked about returning to the Jurassic Park franchise with the upcoming Jurassic World.

When asked about Jurassic World:

“Yeah, and they haven’t called me for “4,” I know Steven Spielberg isn’t directing it …”

When asked if he didn’t do the third movie, because Spielberg didn’t direct it:

“No. Nobody asked me.”

When prodded further:

“No, nobody asked me, but I was perfectly satisfied with the two that I did. I’m still satisfied with that and I’ll be the first in line to see anything else, so, you know. But, “Independence Day” …”

But Goldblum did confirm what Roland Emmerich had been saying last year about bringing some of the cast back for Independence Day 2:

“Yeah, they’ve talked to me about it and I’ve talked to them about it and they’re excited and I’m anxious and eager to see — I haven’t read anything — what they cook up. You know, I think they’re trying to put it together.”
