“Jurassic Park” star up for two new roles
We haven’t seen much of tween star Ariana Richards (“Jurassic Park”) for a while, but apparently she’s eyeing a return to the art that unravels from a noisy overhead booth.
‘Book Keeper’ tells us that the actress, now 26, is in talks for a couple of new film roles.
Firstly, she’s up for a small role in the redo of Bob Clark’s seminally cultish “Black Christmas”, joining the already-cast Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Michelle Trachtenberg, Katie Cassidy and Lacey Chabert. Looking forward to that one – if only because of those piloting it.
In addition, she’s being enlisted for Patrick Read Johnson’s “5-25-77”, about the only science-fiction obsessed teenager in a small rural town, that’s set within the day that “Star Wars” opened. John Francis Daley (“Kitchen Confidential”), Neil Flynn (“Scrubs”) and Justin Mentell (“Boston Legal”) co-star. That sounds like a goodie.
By the way. I hear the role of Lexie, the character she played in “Jurassic Park” and it’s sequel, has quite a big role in the script for the next “Jurassic Park” sequel, but unsure whether they’re going to have Richards play the character. I don’t see why not. She’d be the right age. Had quite the following from her role. And Spielberg apparently loved her. Don’t be surprised if she’s asked to return.
