Scarlett Johansson to Join the Jurassic World Franchise in Upcoming 2025 Film: A Look at the Iconic Film Series and Its Recent Resurgence

Scarlett Johansson is in talks to star in Universal’s new Jurassic World movie, which will be released on July 2, 2025. The film is directed by Gareth Edwards and written by David Koepp, and production is moving quickly. If Scarlett Johansson signs on for the role, it will mark her return to franchise films after starring as Black Widow in Marvel Studios movies. However, she has also earned critical acclaim with Oscar nominations for Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit.

The new Jurassic World movie is part of the 30-year old franchise that began with Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park in 1993. Over the years, it has spawned sequels such as The Lost World (1997) and Jurassic Park III (2001). However, the franchise was revived by Jurassic World in 2015, which led to sequels like Fallen Kingdom (2018) and Dominion (2022). Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard have led the most recent trilogy of films, but Scarlett Johansson’s involvement adds another exciting element to an already star-studded cast. Filmmaker Colin Trevorrow oversaw these films, making this a highly anticipated project for fans of the franchise.
