Sam Neill teases return to shooting 'Jurassic World: Dominion'
Jurassic World: Dominion got a new fillip to its shooting plans after actor Sam Neill on Sunday announced his return to this colossal franchise thrilling viewers globally for over two decades. He will reprise the famous role of paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant, with the film probably continuing from how dinosaurs spread apart in the world at the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
The pandemic hasn't bogged Neill down. He is one of the few movie stars to bring some comic relief to his audience and the world with his homemade Cinema Quarantino video series. Neill plays different roles in each of the videos of this series where he uplifts the mood of his audience. One of the videos even features Helena Bonham Carter as his partner.
Getting widespread love for his video series, Neill's tweet on Sunday got back all the Jurassic movie buffs talking about how this film would pan out. In his tweet, Neill said he is getting his old hat back and that dinosaurs in this flick are going to be the best yet. He also mentioned his co-stars in his exciting tweet. Let's look at it.

In what can be termed as a pioneering move for safe shooting schedules for films, Dominion has a "drive-thru coronavirus test facility" that should be used by everyone in the cast and crew before accessing the film set. Extensive safety measures are taken as actors Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt flew to London, self-quarantined themselves, and then started shooting.
This will be the final Jurassic World film and will feature Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum alongside Neill, Howard, and Pratt. With shooting impacted due to the COVID-19 lockdown, director Colin Trevorrow is set to resume shooting on Monday. With a robust on-site healthcare facility and actors adhering to post-lockdown norms, the film looks set to achieve its release date of June 21, 2021.
