Scarlett Johansson in discussions for lead role in upcoming ‘Jurassic World’ film

Scarlett Johansson Joins Universal’s New Jurassic World Movie: A Return to Franchises after Marvel Success

Scarlett Johansson is in talks to star in Universal’s new Jurassic World movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film is set to be released on July 2, 2025, and will be directed by Gareth Edwards, with a script written by David Koepp. Edwards took over the directing responsibilities after David Leitch left the project shortly after joining.

Johansson’s return to franchises comes after her successful roles as Black Widow in various Marvel Studios films, including the Avengers series. Despite her success in the superhero genre, Johansson has also established herself in other projects and received two Oscar nominations for her roles in Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit. She is also set to voice a character in the upcoming animated feature Transformers One and will appear in a big-budget Apple feature alongside Channing Tatum, both scheduled for release this year.

The Jurassic World franchise has been ongoing for 30 years since Steven Spielberg’s 1993 hit film Jurassic Park, based on Michael Crichton’s novel. This was followed by a sequel, The Lost World, directed by Spielberg in 1997 and Jurassic Park III helmed by Joe Johnston. Universal revived the franchise with Jurassic World in 2015, a major box office success grossing $1.67 billion. The most recent trilogy of films was led by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard under the direction of filmmaker Colin Trevorrow.
