The villain of Michael Crichton‘s original Jurassic Park and The Lost World novels to return for Dominion!
Dodgson, Dodgson, we’ve got Dodgson here!
Life continues to find a way to make Jurassic World: Dominion awesome. Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World threequel already boasts the acting talents of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard who will star alongside the returning legacy actors Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum – and now we are hearing that Dominion just got Dodgson!!
Aside from a memorable blink and you miss it cameo from Lewis Dodgson in Steven Spielberg’s original Jurassic Park, Lewis Dodgson plays a pivotal role in Michael Crichton’s original novels. In both Jurassic Park and The Lost World, Dodgson was the key villain behind the theft of the dinosaurs and was obsessed with pillaging Site B and using its creatures to make his company – BioSyn the new market leader of genetic research. Sadly, the movies omitted many of these glorious original storylines and in the case of The Lost World, scriptwriter David Koepp replaced Dodgson’s BioSyn completely – instead opting to use InGen as the big bad corporation of the movie.
Well, Colin Trevorrow appears to be correcting the failings of the past. Collider is reporting that Lewis Dodgson will be returning for Jurassic World: Dominion. The role will be played by Campbell Scott, known for his role as Peter Parker’s father in The Amazing Spider-Man. The role has been re-cast following the original actor’s conviction as a registered sex offender. As of press time, there is no information regarding the size of the part Dodgson will play, however, with Michael Crichton’s original storylines just begging to be told, we can expect to see him return to pillage John Hammond’s creations once again.
Jurassic World: Dominion, the third installment of the Jurassic World trilogy, will find Owen (Chris Pratt), Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), and others dealing with a world where dinosaurs roam around the world freely and the ramifications of unleashing them at the end of Fallen Kingdom.
Jurassic World: Dominion is scheduled to hit multiplexes on June 11, 2021, however, the COVID-19 shutdown may hamper things somewhat. Check back for the latest updates as they emerge!
