Jeff Goldblum on possibly returning to 'Jurassic' franchise: 'I'm nothing if not open'

LOS ANGELES, April 15 (UPI) — Jeff Goldblum claims that his door is always open when it comes to the possibility of starring in another Jurassic film.

“Yes, in 20 years!” Goldblum joked with Fandango Thursday when asked if there was any plans to involve him in the upcoming sequel to Jurassic World. Goldblum was last seen in The Lost World: Jurassic Park almost 20 years ago, the same amount time he spent away from Independence Day of which he is now the star of its sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence.

“Nah I have no plans. They’re doing very well without me,” he continued before becoming more positive about the idea after being pressed further.

“I’m nothing if not open. I’m like an open-faced sandwich. My door is not always open — I took the door off,” Goldblum remarked.

“I removed the hinges from the door. I’m too open. I’m like a chicken piccata. What was I about to say? Oh yes, the two [Jurassic] movies I did with them were plenty. If I never did anything more, I’d certainly be well satisfied.”

Currently, Jurassic World 2 is still in early development with a release date of June 22, 2018 already locked in. The sequel has no director official attached as original helmer Colin Trevorrow has signed on to direct Star Wars: Episode IX. Trevorrow is still signed onto Jurassic World 2 as co-writer and executive producer.

Resurgence sees Goldblum reprise his role as David Levinson from the original 1997 sci-fi thriller, the computer expert who first warned the White House of an impending alien attack, albeit too late.

The 20 years in the making sequel reunites director Roland Emmerich and Goldblum with original castmates Bill Pullman as Thomas Whitmore, Vivica A. Fox as Jasmine Dubrow, Judd Hirsch as Julius Levinson and Brent Spiner as Brackish Okun. Newcomers Liam Hemsworth and Jessie Usher will also star.

Independence Day: Resurgence arrives in theaters June 24, 2016.
