The highly anticipated upcoming Jurassic World: Dominion will be gaining a new cast member, as Chris Pratt revealed that DeWanda Wise would be joining the film.
Pratt confirmed the news via a post on Instagram, which shows a still from the film of Wise standing next to Pratt. Judging by the photo, the two look to be fending off some sort of threat, as Pratt can be seen with a knife in one hand while Wise is sporting what looks to be a taser in hers.
Wise broke out during her starring role in Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It series, which was based on the legendary Spike Lee film. Recently, she also starred in Netflix’s The Harder They Fall.
Jurassic World: Dominion will be led by Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy Daniella Pineda, Justice Smith, and BD Wong. It will also see the highly-anticipated return of original Jurassic Park stars Laura Dern, Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Campbell Scott. The third installment will also be introducing new characters, portrayed by Mamoudou Athie, DeWanda Wise, Dichen Lachman, Scott Haze, and Isabella Sermon.
The film is once again directed by Colin Trevorrow from a screenplay he co-wrote with Emily Carmichael, based on a story by the first two Jurassic World films’ scribes Derek Conolly and Trevorrow. Executive producers are Trevorrow, Steven Spielberg, and Alexandra Derbyshire
Jurassic World: Dominion is currently set to debut in theaters on June 10, 2022.
