has Fans of the 'Jurassic Park' series rejoiced when it was announced that Jeff Goldblum was returning as Dr. Ian Malcolm for the fifth 'Jurassic Park' movie being directed by 'A Monster Calls' helmer J.A. Bayona. Now, it has been revealed that Goldblum himself helped create many of his dialogues for the upcoming movie.

Screenrant noted that producer Colin Trevorrow, while speaking with MTV News on their 'Happy Sad Confused' podcast, talked about borrowing a lot of dialogue from Crichton's bestselling 1990 novel 'Jurassic Park.' He added that Goldblum had his own suggestions for the dialogues.

"You know, I did rely on [Michael] Crichton for a lot. I used a lot of Crichton dialogue. Maybe one of my highlights of this whole process is Goldblum. Jeff Goldblum called me – and I'm not going to do an impression – but he was like, 'Look, I've added a couple of things, and I thought I'd perform it for you.' [Laughs] Oh, great, okay. So, we sat on the phone for an hour as he ran these lines, and I talked about it. And, I mean, that's – it was almost better than being there on set. It was great," Trevorrow said.

It must be noted here that Jeff Goldblum had a very important influence on the direction of his character in the 1993 Spielberg film. As per the shooting script, Malcolm, as in the novel, was supposed to freak out and run away when the Tyrannosaurus was terrorising the kids inside the overturned Ford Explorer. But Goldblum suggested instead, that Malcolm should heroically risk his life and distract the dinosaur away from the kids, while Sam Neill's Dr. Alan Grant pulls them out towards safety.

The result is there for everyone to see in the final film. Malcolm distracts the T-Rex with a flare and makes it chase him instead, almost losing his life in the process and being severely injured for the rest of the film.

As for dialogues, Jurassic Outpost mentioned that in a previous podcast with the website, Colin Trevorrow had confirmed that dialogue from the first novel was used on the script of the Jurassic World sequel. "It makes me feel like such a good writer (...) Look at me, that's a hell of a sentence," Trevorrow had said during the InGeneral Podcast, episode 43, which can be heard here.

In the MTV podcast, as quoted by Jurassic Outpost, Colin Trevorrow also said about Jurassic World 2, that "It's just deeper, more character-based, and it definitely leans into suspense, especially in the second half. It does have the big action in the middle. There's a sequence in the middle that I've been watching – I mean, I watch dailies every day – but I've started to see stuff come together, and it's just insane."

Colin Trevorrow also spoke recently with ET Online about the approach to Jurassic World 2 saying, "It's a much more character-based film and it's just a deeper, richer movie. After Jurassic World, which really is intended to make you feel like a child for two hours and escape the rest of the world, which can be a pretty scary place right now, this movie is a little bit more about our world right now and all of those dangers."

Trevorrow also teased a scene in the upcoming movie which is sure to excite audiences and fans – "there's a sequence in the middle of this movie that is just as spectacular of a dinosaur action sequence as you'll ever need or want to see and J.A. has executed it beautifully," adding, "but in the end, it's about something a little more and I hope people are ready for that."

The untitled 'Jurassic World' sequel is set for release on June 22, 2018.
