Scarlett Johansson is set to star in Universal’s new Jurassic World movie, according to recent reports. The film is scheduled for release on July 2, 2025, and will be directed by Gareth Edwards with a script written by David Koepp. Edwards took over the directing duties after David Leitch left the project shortly after joining.

Johansson has previously starred in various Marvel Studios films as Black Widow, including the Avengers series. However, despite her success in the superhero genre, she has also made a name for herself in other projects. She earned two Oscar nominations for her roles in Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit and is set to voice a character in the upcoming animated feature Transformers One. Additionally, she will appear in a big-budget Apple feature alongside Channing Tatum, both of which are scheduled for release this year.

The Jurassic World franchise has been ongoing for 30 years, starting with Steven Spielberg’s 1993 hit film Jurassic Park, based on Michael Crichton’s novel. This was followed by a sequel, The Lost World, directed by Spielberg in 1997 and Jurassic Park III in 2001 helmed by Joe Johnston. Universal revived the franchise with Jurassic World in 2015, which was a major box office success grossing $1.67 billion. This was followed by sequels Fallen Kingdom in 2018 and Dominion in 2022. The most recent trilogy of films was led by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard under the direction of filmmaker Colin Trevorrow.
