Scarlett Johansson Celebrates Joining Her 1 Dream Franchise After ’10 Years’ Of Trying

Scarlett Johansson has decided to endorse the park, following her recent confirmation as a cast member in the upcoming fourth installment of the “Jurassic World” franchise. The Oscar-nominated actor shared that this role is something she has been pursuing for over a decade. “I’ve been trying to get into this franchise in any possible way for over 10 years,” Johansson told “I’m like, ‘I’ll die in the first five minutes! I can get eaten by whatever! I’ll do the craft service!’ I’ll do anything for it.” She expressed her disbelief and excitement about finally joining the series, stating, “The fact that it’s happened … is actually unbelievable. I can’t believe it.”

Johansson is set to join the ranks of female actors like Laura Dern and Julianne Moore, whose characters narrowly survived the perilous park in the earlier films directed by Steven Spielberg. The “Jurassic Park” series, after a long hiatus following the poorly received “Jurassic Park III” in 2001, was revived with the “Jurassic World” trilogy in 2015. Despite their critical reception, these films were box-office successes. Having appeared in nine Marvel movies since 2010, Johansson is no stranger to blockbuster franchises. When asked what attracted her to the “Jurassic World” series, she enthusiastically replied, “Everything.” She shared her long-standing admiration for “Jurassic Park,” recalling it as one of the first films she saw in theatres and describing it as a life-changing, mind-blowing experience.

While some fans of the original Michael Crichton novel and Spielberg movies have grown weary of the sequels, the upcoming instalment brings new hope. It features prominent actors like Oscar winner Mahershala Ali alongside Johansson and is directed by Gareth Edwards, known for “Godzilla” (2014). Additionally, the original “Jurassic Park” screenwriter, David Koepp, has returned to write the script, bringing his passion and expertise back to the series. Johansson expressed her excitement about the project, praising the script and Koepp’s involvement. “The script is so incredible,” she told “David Koepp wrote it. He returned after, like, 30 years to write the script. He’s so passionate about it, which is awesome.”
