We know already that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard (the latter hopefully in more sensible footwear) will be back for the Jurassic World follow-up. Now director Juan Antonio Bayona has zeroed in on two more actors, with Rafe Spall and Toby Jones in talks to go dino-dodging.

Much of what the movie will be about – beyond the obvious ramifications of corporate plans for the dinosaurs and whatever else they get up to – is still being kept behind giant gates. Colin Trevorrow, who co-wrote and directed the first World is back on script duty for this one, alongside fellow dino-scribe Derek Connolly.

"It will be more suspenseful and scary," Trevorrow has told the Jurassic Outpost site. "It’s just the way it’s designed; it’s the way the story plays out. I knew I wanted Bayona to direct it long before anyone ever heard that was a possibility, so the whole thing was just built around his skill set."

Obviously, Jones and Spall's characters are similarly under wraps, but according to Variety Bayona and co. have offered them their parts and are now starting an audition process to fill other cast parts.

Jurassic World 2: Raptor Boogaloo – or whatever the title ends up being – will be out in the UK on 8 June 2018. Jones will be popping up in the new season of Sherlock as a villain starting on New Year's Day, while Spall will be seen in emotional true-life drama Mum's List, due out on the 25th of this month.

Juan Antonio Bayona confirmed to direct Jurassic World 2.
