Jeff Goldblum has told EW that he will be reprising the role of Dr. Ian Malcolm in the upcoming game Jurassic World Evolution.
The title is set to release sometime this summer and will give players control of the entirety of Jurassic Park. Players will be able to build attractions, create dinosaurs, and keep dinosaurs from feasting on visitors. It will release on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
“I’m going to be with you the whole game, as Dr. Ian Malcolm—that’s the character that I play in those Jurassic Park movies,” Goldblum told EW. “I highly recommend it. It gets 10 Goldblums out of a possible 10 Goldblums—that’s my highest rating.”
It is unclear at this time what role Goldblum will play in the building sim. The most likely scenario involves Goldblum acting as the main adviser in the game, guiding the players with their decision-making in the in-game tutorial.
The news coincides with the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom this summer. In the film, Goldblum will be reprising his role of Dr. Ian Malcolm for the first time in over 20 years. He was last as Dr. Ian Malcolm in The Lost World: Jurassic Park when the film hit cinemas in 1997.
