Universal Studios in Discussions with Scarlett Johansson for Role in Gareth Edwards’ ‘Jurassic World’ Film

Scarlett Johansson, a two-time Oscar nominee and successful actress, is currently in talks to join the Gareth Edwards-directed reboot of Jurassic Park at Universal. After her successful run as Black Widow in the Marvel movies, Johansson is now looking to be a part of another major movie franchise.

Jurassic World will be a fresh take on the Jurassic era, with cast members from the previous Jurassic World movies not expected to return. The new movie will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg through Amblin Entertainment, with Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley producing through Kennedy-Marshall. The Jurassic Park franchise, which is celebrating its 30-year anniversary, has grossed $1.67 billion at the global box office. The first movie was followed by two sequels, and then the franchise was revived in 2015 with Jurassic World.

Scarlett Johansson has received critical acclaim for her roles in films like Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit, where she earned Oscar nominations. In addition to her work on blockbuster movies, Johansson has also been recognized for her talent in independent films.
