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

Scarlett Johansson recently attended the premiere of ‘Asteroid City’ in NYC on June 13. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that she is now in talks to star in Universal’s new Jurassic World movie, set to be released on July 2, 2025. This news marks a return to franchises for Johansson, who has previously showcased her talent in multiple projects and received two Oscar nominations for her performances in Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit.

Gareth Edwards is directing the movie, with a script written by David Koepp, who previously worked on Jurassic Park. This new role for Johansson follows her successful big-budget film with Channing Tatum this year and her upcoming animated feature Transformers One. The Jurassic World franchise began with Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park in 1993 and has been going strong for over 30 years, including sequels like The Lost World (1997) and Jurassic Park III (2001), before being revived by the successful Jurassic World (2015). This revival led to sequels like Fallen Kingdom (2018) and Dominion (2022), with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard taking the lead roles. Colin Trevorrow oversaw the most recent trilogy of films, and the upcoming movie is expected to continue the legacy of this beloved franchise.
