DeWanda Wise has been cast in a leading role in the upcoming Jurassic World 3 sequel.
The She’s Gotta Have It star will join Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard which we interviewed here on BGN last year.
According to an exclusive from Variety, Colin Trevorrow, who helmed the first Jurassic World, is returning to direct the pic, which he co-wrote with Emily Carmichael. The script is based on a story by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, who penned the previous two scripts. The recent casting news comes on the heels of Trevorrow’s Jurassic World short film Battle at Big Rock, which earned rave reviews and a massive response from Social media in anticipation of the next film. Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow return to executive produce.
DeWanda Wise starred as Nola Darling in Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It which was canceled this year. She went on to star in another Netflix film Someone Great co-starring along Gina Rodriguez and Brittany Snow. The indie film The Weekend directed by Stella Meghie, Wise played Margo in the whimsical rom-com about two ex-lovers who spend a weekend at a bed and breakfast only to discover that maybe their break-up was just a “break”.
Jurassic World 3 is scheduled to release June 11, 2021.
