TOBY Jones and James Cromwell have joined the sequel to Jurassic World.

The duo will line up alongside returning actors Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the production, which also has Get Down star Justice Smith among its ensemble.

Shooting on the follow-up begins later this month with J.A. Bayona, of A Monster Calls and The Impossible fame, directing. As yet, plot details remain sketchy. Indeed, there were no character details for either Jones or Cromwell revealed as part of the announcement.

Universal has set June 22, 2018, as the release date.

Jones was most recently seen as a villain in the latest series of hit BBC drama Sherlock and was also a part of the Marvel universe as another bad guy in the Captain America films.

Cromwell, who has been acting for more than 50 years, earned an Oscar nomination for the much loved children’s movie Babe and has appeared in movies ranging from LA Confidential to The Green Mile. He won an Emmy for his work on the third season of American Horror Story.
