Vincent D’Onofrio to Play Villain in ‘Jurassic World’ – Along With Dangerous Dinosaurs

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard star in Universal’s 3D sequel that is being directed by Colin Trevorrow (“Safety Not Guaranteed”)

In an inspired casting choice, Universal Pictures has turned to Vincent D’Onofrio to play the villain in “Jurassic World,” an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.

Colin Trevorrow (“Safety Not Guaranteed”) is directing from a script he wrote with Derek Connolly, though plot details remain under wraps.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard star alongside Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins and Irrfan Khan, who will play Patel, the billionaire owner of a new Jurassic Park. An individual familiar with the casting breakdown tells TheWrap that D’Onofrio will play the CFO of the Patel Corp.

D’Onofrio is a potent choice to join the franchise, as he knows how to play both menacing and sleazy. Over the course of his esteemed career, he has played crazed Private Pyle in “Full Metal Jacket,” a racist, homicidal LAPD cop in “Strange Days,” a freaky-looking alien in “Men in Black,” a comatose serial killer in “The Cell,” a sadistic drug dealer Pooh-Bear in “The Salton Sea” and a double-crossing scoundrel in “Escape Plan,” which may come the closest to his “Jurassic World” character.

“Jurassic Park” director Steven Spielberg is producing the 3D sequel with Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley, and Universal will release “Jurassic World” on June 12, 2015.

After saying goodbye to his beloved role as Detective Goren on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” D’Onofrio has been working overtime lately, as he recently wrapped a pair of Warner Bros. movies in “The Judge” and “Run All Night,” as well as a Pele biopic in which he plays a soccer coach. However, the movie I’m most excited to see D’Onofrio in is “Mall,” which is based on Eric Bogosian’s excellent first novel. D’Onofrio not only produced and co-wrote the edgy drama, but he also stars as a peeping tom who has his eye on Gina Gershon’s naughty housewife.

Chlorine: Film Review

Vincent D'Onofrio and Kyra Sedgwick play a long-married couple dealing with financial and relationship issues in this satirical comedy/drama

It takes more than chlorine to make a pool swimmable, and it takes more than a rehashing of familiar themes of suburban moral rot to make Chlorine watchable. Jay Alaimo’s drama about a long-married couple dealing with familial and financial tensions features fine performances from the veterans in its cast. But it ultimately comes across as little more than a compendium of clichés.
Set in the seemingly bucolic New England town of Copper Canyon, the film concerns the strained relationship between the hapless Roger (Vincent D’onofrio), a banker who has slaved away for years in the hope of getting the promotion that has been perpetually dangled before him, and his wife Georgie (Kyra Sedgwick), who strives to maintain her youth with a newfound passion for racing motorcycles while looking on enviously at the lavish lifestyle of Roger’s boss (Jordan Belfi) and his free-spending wife (Elisabeth Rohm).

Their children are no less disaffected. Daughter Cynthia (Flora Cross) is struggling with adolescence, experiencing her first period while swimming in the country-club pool whose frequent doses of chlorine provide the film with its all too symbolic title. Her older brother Henry (Ryan Donowho), who spends his free time reading The Art of War, works part-time at a local construction site whose contractor (Tom Sizemore) forces him into cutting corners.

When a sleazy tennis pro and part-time drug dealer (Rhys Corfio) asks Roger to help him invest his ill-gotten gains, Roger sees an opportunity. His ensuing financial chicanery sparks a crisis that forces the main characters to reassess their values and relationships, resulting in an improbable happy ending.

Director Alaimo-- working from a screenplay co-written with Matt Fiorello--never manages to plumb the socially resonant situations with the necessary depth. The film, revealing its low-budget limitations with its washed-out visuals, never achieves a consistent tone, veering uneasily between forced satirical humor and sappy melodrama. While the ever-reliable D’Onofrio and Sedgwick manage to invest their characters with subtle emotional depths, their fine efforts are not enough to rid Chlorine of its odious elements.
