Alan Grant won't be back...
Jurassic World will be moving forward without a veteran in battling genetically-created dinosaurs. Sam Neill told Examiner that he won't be showing up in the Colin Treverrow-directed entry of the franchise, hitting theaters on June 12th, 2015.
Neill said of the film, "I'm sure it's going to be great, but they don't need me... I think there's a whole new cast and a whole new look at things, and I think that's great. As I said, I'd never say no, but I wish them [well]."
The film will star Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson and Irrfan Khan.
