“Jurassic” legends are reuniting and it’s cause for a song, as Sam Neil and Jeff Goldblum sang a duet to commemorate their return to the “Jurassic” set as they shoot “Jurassic World: Dominion.” Dr. Ian Malcolm and Dr. Alan Grant are back together, nearly 30 years after they were paired up in the original “Jurassic Park.”
With Goldblum on the piano, he and Neil sang “I remember you”, a song Goldblum called “apropos for our reunion.” The video shared on Twitter quickly garnered more than a million views, as the nostalgia for the original classic ramps up as the original stars film “Dominion.”

We’ve already known Dominion was gonna be awesome as soon as Neil, Goldblum, and Laura Dern decided to reunite in the third film of the Chris Pratt-led reboot. The original Jurassic Park is not only the best film of the franchise, but it was a genre-shifting movie. We’re even psyched for the Jurassic: Camp Cretaceous animated show coming to Netflix.
The Jurassic reboot in 2015 was an enormous success, so a sequel was only natural. “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” didn’t receive the same critical reception, but it was still a box-office smash. And the third film of the re-boot is supposed to be an even bigger celebration of what makes the franchise great, and that’s why we’re getting the old gang back together.
The movie, which is the third and final Jurassic World film, has been described by everyone involved more as a “Jurassic Park VI”, since it ties together the entire Jurassic universe. The actors have reportedly been blown away by the script, described as a “science thriller” that organically works the original trio into the storyline, rather than a Star Wars-esque heavy-handed re-entry.
It’s one of the first movies filming in the COVID era, so the entire production is undergoing rigorous safety precautions, including regular testing and different “bubbles” of production staff.
