Scarlett Johansson in Negotiations to Star in Upcoming ‘Jurassic World’ Film

Scarlett Johansson has recently attended the premiere of ‘Asteroid City’ in NYC on June 13. Following that, she is now in talks to star in Universal’s new Jurassic World movie, set for release on July 2, 2025. The news was confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, indicating that the production is moving swiftly ahead. Gareth Edwards is directing the film, with a script written by David Koepp, who previously worked on Jurassic Park. After David Leitch left the project shortly after his attachment to it, Edwards stepped into the director role.

The new role in the Jurassic World film represents a return to franchises for Johansson. She has previously showcased her talent as Black Widow in various Marvel Studios movies and has also worked on other successful projects. For her outstanding performances, she has received two Oscar nominations for Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit. In addition to this latest project, she will also voice a character in Transformers One and star alongside Channing Tatum in an upcoming big-budget film set to be released this year.

The Jurassic World franchise has been thriving since its beginnings with Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park in 1993. It includes sequels like The Lost World (1997) and Jurassic Park III (2001). A revival led to successful movies like Fallen Kingdom (2018) and Dominion (2022), with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard taking leading roles. Colin Trevorrow oversaw the most recent trilogy of films, and this upcoming movie continues the legacy of this beloved franchise.
