Scarlett Johansson recently attended the June 13 premiere of ‘Asteroid City’ in NYC. The actor is currently in negotiations to join the cast of Universal’s upcoming new Jurassic World movie. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed this news.

Scarlett Johansson, who previously starred as Black Widow in various Marvel Studios films, is set to return to the world of franchises with the new Jurassic World movie.

Johansson has received two Oscar nominations for her work in Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit. She also has a voice role in the upcoming animated feature Transformers One and is set to star alongside Channing Tatum in a big-budget Apple film releasing this year.

The latest Jurassic World film is part of a franchise that began with Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park in 1993, based on Michael Crichton’s novel. The original film was followed by a sequel, The Lost World (1997), directed by Spielberg, and Jurassic Park III (2001) directed by Joe Johnston. The trilogy was revived with Jurassic World in 2015, which grossed $1.67 billion and led to sequels Fallen Kingdom (2018) and Dominion (2022). Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard were the leads in the trilogy overseen by filmmaker Colin Trevorrow.

Universal has set a release date of July 2, 2025 for the new Jurassic World movie, which will be directed by Gareth Edwards. Edwards replaced David Leitch after he left the project shortly after joining. David Koepp wrote the script for this new installment of the franchise, having previously worked on Jurassic Park
