  • The new ‘Jurassic World’ movie is adding Manuel Garcia-Rulfo.
  • His role is unknown for now.
  • Gareth Edwards is in the director’s chair.

Anyone who watches Netflix’s series adaptation of ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ knows that Manuel Garcia-Rulfo has proved –– at least as main character Mickey Haller –– can figure his way around a legal scrap.

But he’s going to need more than a firm grasp on the principles of prima facia to tackle his next challenge: he’s now joining Scarlett Johansson and ‘Bridgerton’ veteran Jonathan Bailey in the next ‘Jurassic World’ movie.

If we’re honest, a fast Lincoln might be more help against hungry dinosaurs. Beyond his casting though, Deadline had no details on his role.

What’s the story of the new ‘Jurassic World’ movie?

Universal is mostly keeping the details of the new movie trapped behind fences and concrete barriers for now. What can we predict? Big-toothed beasts causing trouble for the humans that foolishly interact with them.

A bigger question, though, is which humans… It’ll reportedly be set in the ‘Jurassic World’ era, but won’t directly connect to the previous three movies, so an appearance from characters such as those films’ Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) or Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) appears unlikely for now –– though we won’t rule anything out at this point.

From the sounds of it, this new movie would take the franchise in a fresh new direction, so we’re also not predicting (for now) the return of ‘Jurassic Park’ trio Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) and Jeff Goldblum’s chaotician Malcolm.

While Garcia-Rulfo joins Johansson and Bailey on the “confirmed” list, there have been other potential pieces of casting, though they remain in the rumor-sphere.

Among them? Dev Patel, who recently made a strong directorial debut with ‘Monkey Man’ (which Universal picked up to distribute when Netflix left it in limbo) and Colman Domingo, who was up for awards for ‘Rustin’ (and just appeared in Universal’s ‘Drive-Away Dolls’).

It remains to be seen if either of them graduates from the world of rumors to reality.

Who is making the new ‘Jurassic World’ movie?

Gareth Edwards, the director of ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ and more recently, ‘The Creator’, is overseeing the new movie.

David Koepp, who wrote both the 1993 classic ‘Jurassic Park’ (directed by Steven Spielberg) and its 1997 sequel, ‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’ (also directed by Spielberg, to less critical praise, but still healthy box office), crafted the new movie’s screenplay.

Longtime producer Frank Marshall, who worked on all three of the ‘Jurassic World’ movies is on board this one also, and the studio seems bullish about the progress so far. And of course, Spielberg will weigh in since he helped birth the franchise.

When will the new ‘Jurassic World’ movie be in theaters?

The dinosaurs should be roaring onto screens on July 2nd, 2025.
