Independence Day star Jeff Goldblum has revealed that he is in talks to return for the sequel Independence Day 2. Though, he hasn't received a call to reprise his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm in the upcoming Jurassic World, which he's okay with.
A vast majority of the news regarding Independence Day 2 has revolved around whether or not Will Smith will return to star. Earlier this month, director Roland Emmerich confirmed the actor turned down the sequel, though Will Smith's decision is still not "set in stone" as of today (there's a slight chance he may return). The better news is that Jeff Goldblum plans to reprise his role as David Levinson from the original blockbuster.
"Yeah, they've talked to me about it and I've talked to them about it and they're excited and I'm anxious and eager to see -- I haven't read anything -- what they cook up. You know, I think they're trying to put it together."
Three years before the first Independence Day, Jeff Goldblum starred as Dr. Ian Malcolm in director Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, a role he reprised in the 1997 sequel The Lost World: Jurassic Park. When asked about the possibility of bringing Ian Malcolm back to the big screen in Jurassic World, the actor revealed he hasn't been approached to come back.
"Yeah...they haven't called me for "4," I know Steven Spielberg isn't directing it ..."
"No, nobody asked me, but I was perfectly satisfied with the two that I did. I'm still satisfied with that and I'll be the first in line to see anything else, so, you know."
