Jurassic World 2 is currently in production, and it was announced last month that Jeff Goldblum is returning to the franchise to reprise his famous role as Dr. Ian Malcolm. Now Goldblum has weighed in about what fans can expect from the film.
“I’ll try to contribute something to the plate of dino-entertainment,” he said. “I like my character. I think my character is a saucy, sassy man of some integrity and deep thinking. And of course, that whole world continues to be popular, slam-bang, top entertainment.”
Goldblum went on to hint at the themes that director J.A. Bayona would be exploring in the movie: “Even though some might say it’s popcorn-y entertainment–top-notch, of course–in our conversation, [Bayona] was very focused on the serious issues of greed, the marvels of science and reason, and the very fascinating point at which our species finds itself.”
“I’m very interested in that myself, so I’m looking forward to this. I’ve got a few things to do. I’m nothing if not conscientious, so I’m enjoying working on it every day.”
