After missing out on the previous sequels, BD Wong’s “Jurassic Park” character, InGen geneticist Dr. Henry Wu, made a surprise return in 2015’s “Jurassic World” – and then a surprise escape from Isla Nubar in the course of that film. Asked whether this meant Wong would return for the upcoming sequel to “Jurassic World,” executive producer Frank Marshall said, “When they take off in helicopters, you know they’re probably going to come back.”
Wu was responsible for the creation of Indominus Rex, the hyper-intelligent hybrid dinosaur that rampaged through the park in “Jurassic World.” Add this to his alliance with security chief Vic Hoskins (Vincent D’Onofrio), who wanted to weaponize and militarize the dinosaurs, and it wouldn’t be surprising if Wu played a more substantial, villainous role in a future “Jurassic” film. (After all, Wu had a much larger role in Michael Crichton’s original books.)
Filming for “Jurassic World 2” begins in March, and “Jurassic World” director Colin Trevorrow hopes to treat it as the second film in a planned trilogy. No word on whether Wong will also appear in the tentative third film.
Directed by J.A. Bayona and written by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, the as-yet-untitled “Jurassic World” sequel also stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. It is due in theaters on June 22, 2018.
