Jurassic World: Dominion recently restarted production in England following months of lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, and star Jeff Goldblum said that Universal gave them a safety list, written in 109-pages, to ensure that everyone working on the set will not be at risk of getting sick.
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Goldblum said that the studio has been very thorough in establishing the safety measures against coronavirus. Among the precautions that they have to follow in filming Jurassic World: Dominion includes quarantine time for the cast and crew, as well as regular tests and other safety protocols.
“They invested all their heart and soul, and a lot of money, into making sure that we’re safe,” Goldblum said. “We’re going to be very safe, I think,” the actor assured the fans and the families of those who are on the set.
Third film bringing back Jurassic Park cast
Goldblum’s return was teased in the last Jurassic World film, Fallen Kingdom, to hit theaters. His character from Jurassic Park, Dr. Ian Malcolm, briefly appeared in the final scenes of the 2018 movie.
But he isn’t the only one from the original Jurassic Park cast who will be joining the new installment. Sam Neill and Laurea Dern are also reprising their roles as Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler, respectively, for Jurassic World: Dominion.
Neill said in an interview with Yahoo! Movies that their return won’t be just cameos.
“We’re all the way through the film, Jeff [Goldblum], and me, and Laura [Dern],” the actor said. “[I] probably won’t be running quite as fast as I was 27 years ago!”
‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ plot details, cast and release date
As production is slowly resuming, Jurassic World: Dominion is reportedly going to meet its theater date: June 11, 2021, assuming that there will be no further disruptions and work suspension that the cast and crew will have no control of.
The new film will delve into Biosyn Genetics, the company that started the dinosaur research almost three decades ago. It will bring back Lewis Dodgson (Cambell Scott), who helped Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) steal those dinosaur embryos from the very first Jurassic film directed by Steven Spielberg.
This explains why Grant, Sattler, and Malcolm will have bigger exposures in the upcoming film, along with the main characters Chris Pratt (Owen Grady) and Bryce Dallas Howard (Claire).
Jurassic World: Dominion producer Frank Marshall teased that this movie will be the “start of a new era” as the dinosaurs will now be in the mainland, wreaking havoc in cities. Colin Trevorrow is directing the movie again.
