It took a long time for it to happen, and it came close to derailing at least once, but Jurassic World, the long awaited sequel / reboot to Jurassic Park, is finally rolling, and now it’s officially got a villain…acclaimed actor Vincent D’Onofrio.
This definitely makes Jurassic World even more enticing, and we think D’Onofrio could play a great, scenery chewing bad guy. He already joins a pretty good cast that includes Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Irrfan Khan.
As you would expect, there’s no word on the plot, which is being kept under wraps, but we doubt it will be much different than the previous Jurassic Park flicks. People will come to the island thinking nothing could go wrong, and then all hell breaks loose.
We wouldn’t be surprised if D’Onofrio played some kind of corporate scum kind of character, like Paul Reiser in Aliens, or the mayor of Amity in Jaws, someone who ignores everyone’s safety in favor of profits, until a big dinosaur gobbles him up too.
