Mr. Sunday Movies made a wild claim that Sam Neill could be returning to Jurassic Park as Dr. Alan Grant in J. A. Bayona‘s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
According to the video, Neill was spotted in a blacked-out SUV on set during filming, which suggested he could be making a surprise cameo. In regards to the source, they previously broke the news about Matt Damon’s cameo in Thor: Ragnarok. Take it for what it’s worth.
It’s surprising they’ve kept this secret being that they made a whole bunch of noise behind Jeff Goldblum‘s return as Ian Malcolm, which was confirmed in the first trailer debut earlier this week. Goldblum is rumored to just be a cameo, with the trailer implying he’s testifying as to why these dinosaurs need to be saved. Is this the same sequence that we’d see Neill make his return? Personally, I hope we see them both back in a larger capacity. Neill last battled dinos in Jurassic Park III.
J. A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) directed the new installment. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning for the sequel, which also stars Jeff Goldblum, along with Justice Smith, James Cromwell, and Toby Jones. Colin Trevorrow, who directed Jurassic World, wrote the script for the sequel with Derek Connolly.
