"I don't want to pass on gossip like my character," Goldblum said, referring to his role in Jurassic Park as the silver-tongued scientist, Dr. Ian Malcolm. "But it would be good news to me and to everyone, [to] millions and billions of people all over the world… all over the universe and cosmos when Ellie Sattler returns."
Goldblum went on to praise Dern -- with whom he formed a brief romantic connection following their time on the set of Steven Spielberg's dino-packed action-adventure -- for being "a very powerful, brilliant woman," two characteristics he says she shares with her iconic character.

"[It] could be fun," she teased. "I mean, I love Ellie Sattler."
Dern praised the character, sharing, "She's a tough feminist! We need her back."

Goldblum -- who has worked with Anderson twice before on The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou in 2004 and The Grand Budapest Hotel in 2014 -- said the critically lauded auteur is "a genius, of course, and a delightful person and great to work with."
"He's an actor's director and I love playing with him and making stuff up," Goldblum shared "If you liked [Anderson's 2009 animated film] Fantastic Mr. Fox, this is pioneering some very new territory. He got a band of brilliant artists and the cast members for this… and I believe that this movie will take its place in the important continuum of cinema throughout the decades. I think it's a monumentally beautiful movie."
Isle of Dogs -- also starring Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Angelica Huston and Tilda Swinton, among a score of other celebrated performers -- opens in theaters in limited release on March 23, before expanding nationwide on April 6.
