After much speculation, Sam Neill has announced that he will in fact play a part in the upcoming Thor film. Sam Neill, who played Dr. Alan Grant in the Jurassic Park movie, will join fellow Jurassic Park alum Jeff Goldblum on the film. But there’s a massive distinction to be made: while Goldblum has been announced as Grandmaster, Neill revealed his role is a secret.
In a recent interview with Short List, Neill was talking with them about movie roles, and he revealed that he just did a couple of days on Thor. And as for why we don’t know his role yet? “If I say anything else, Marvel’s secret agents, and they are lethal, will come and get me and probably my children, as well,” he jokingly told the interviewer.
Working on Thor will reunite both Neil and director Taika Watiti, who directed Neill’s recent film, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Neill didn’t just talk about his future in the MCU, but his future in another film franchise, that being the Jurassic Park line of films.
Last we saw Dr Alan Grant, he was tricked into helping a family reunite on when their son went missing on another dino infested island. In the interview, Neill stated that he doesn’t know if he’ll be reprising his role in the upcoming Jurassic World sequel. Neill suggested that Grant “is retired, and probably sick to death of dinosaurs” Only time will truly tell, but fans of the franchise would probably love to see Dr Alan Grant back, and grumpier than ever.
