Scarlett Johansson in negotiations for role in Gareth Edwards’ upcoming ‘Jurassic World’ film at Universal

Scarlett Johansson, a 2-time Oscar nominee, is in discussions to join the reboot of Jurassic World, which is being directed by Gareth Edwards at Universal. This information has been circulating for some time and now seems to be becoming a reality. Following her time as Black Widow at Marvel, Johansson will become involved in another major movie franchise.

During the 2021 pandemic release of Black Widow, Johansson sued Disney after the studio decided to simultaneously release the movie in theaters and on Disney+, impacting box office revenues. Eventually, the two parties reached a settlement.

Universal is fast-tracking the production of Jurassic World for a scheduled release date of July 2, 2025. David Koepp, who previously adapted the first Jurassic Park film from Michael Crichton’s novel, is writing the script for this latest installment. The new movie will bring a fresh perspective to the Jurassic era, with the expectation that cast members from previous Jurassic World films, such as Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, will not be returning. Additionally, actors from the original Jurassic Park trilogy, including Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neill, are not expected to appear in the new film.

Jurassic World will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment
