Jeff Goldblum on Jurassic World sequel: "My door is always open"
JA Bayona also announced as director of Jurassic World follow-up
Getty Sammy Maine, 18th April 2016 Jeff Goldblum has opened up about the possibility of returning to the Jurassic Park franchise, with JA Bayona also announced as the director of the new film.
Goldblum, who starred in 1993's Jurassic Park and 1997's Jurassic Park: Lost World has yet to return to the franchise with rumours of his return to Jurassic World in 2015 proving false.
However, speaking to Consequence of Sound, he said of a potential return: "I'm nothing if not open. I’m like an open-faced sandwich. My door is not always open – I took the door off. I removed the hinges from the door. I’m too open. I’m like a chicken piccata.
Proud to collaborate with one of my favorite filmmakers on the next Jurassic adventure. JA Bayona, it's all yours.

"What was I about to say? Oh yes, the two [Jurassic Park] movies I did with them were plenty. If I never did anything more, I’d certainly be well satisfied."
His cryptic message is sure to frustrate a few avid Jurassic Park fans. Meanwhile, Ja Bayona has been announced as the director of the Jurassic World follow-up.
The Spanish filmmaker is known for his work on 2007's The Orphanage and 2012's The Impossible. He'll be working from a script written by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Conolly.
Filming is yet to start and no release date for the Jurassic World sequel has been announced. Lead star Chris Pratt is set to return.
