Asked about Independence Day 2, he said: “They’ve talked to me about it, and I’ve talked to them about it and they’re excited and I’m anxious and eager to see – I haven’t read anything. I think they’re trying to put it together.”

However, when asked about his possible involvement with Jurassic World, Goldblum – who starred in both the original dinosaur film and the follow-up The Lost World – replied: “They haven’t called me for it. Nobody asked me, but I was perfectly satisfied with the two that I did. I’m still satisfied with that and I’ll be the first in line to see anything else.”
