There is a new human entering the Jurassic world franchise, and he’s going to fight for his life in this new film.

By Deadlineactor Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, best known for The Magnificent Seven 2016 Reboot and Netflix The Lincoln Lawyer– signed on for a lead role. (Unfortunately, he probably won’t be a public dinosaur advocate or a dinosaur cowboy, two things this franchise could use.) Details on his character are currently under wraps, but he’s joining Scarlett Johansson And Jonathan Bailey in the Gareth Edwards-film made. For Garcia-Rulfo, who also headlines Netflix Rock Paramo, it is her biggest film role to date.

Unlike the last Jurassic trilogy, this new film does not plan to bring back returning actors from previous series like Chris Pratt or Laura Dern. At the moment, we don’t even know exactly what it will be about, beyond the general premise of humans running away from dinosaurs who want to eat them. Written by Jurassic alum David Koppthe film has previously been described as a “new version” of the material, the last installment of which was Jurassic World: Domination in 2022. Filming is expected to begin in the UK in June, then in Malta from July to September.

Jurassic World 4 is currently dated July 2, 2025. (A busy month which will, between that, Superman, And Fantastic Four.) We’ll have more news on the film as things develop.
