Josh Brolin is reportedly in talks to star in Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World.
The Wrap says a deal has not been made yet, however. Also in talks to star are Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson. Last month, the studio announced that Jurassic World will be released in 3D on Friday, June 12, 2015.
Deadline is reporting that 12-year-old actor Ty Simpkins of Insidious and Insidious Chapter Two has landed one of the lead roles in director Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, the fourth film in the dinosaur-fueled series.
The site also says that New Girl star Jake Johnson is reportedly in the mix for a role in the film, but that remains unconfirmed. Steven Spielberg returns to produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series with Trevorrow both directing and co-writing alongside Derek Connolly.
The first slice of Jurassic World casting news has arrived. The Wrap reports Bryce Dallas Howard is in talks to star in the film. No word yet as to who she will play.
Colin Trevorrow is directing the next installment in the series.
Universal will release the film on June 12, 2015. Apparently, Howard has been circling the project for a little bit now.
Universal announced last evening that Jurassic Park 4 is going to be called Jurassic World and, now, check out – what we can confirm is – a pitch trailer for the film. Take it for what it is, merely a pitch trailer… Frank Marshall clarified via Twitter that the scene featured is “not part of the movie.”
According to the YouTube poster who ran the video: “All I can say is this video was shown as part of Iain McCaig’s presentation at the recent Star Wars convention in Germany (he’s the fantastic concept artist and designer of Darth Maul). I can only presume it was part of a pitch for reigniting the JP movie franchise, if anyone can confirm please let me know. It was apparently shown to Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg. Mr McCaig actually said “it certainly got Steven interested in dinosaurs again…” I just think is so cool.”
We think it’s cool, too. Check it out!
Universal announced today that Jurassic Park 4 is now being called Jurassic World. Furthermore, the film is now set to debut on June 12, 2015, making that summer absolutely HUGE.
That’s the summer we’re supposed to see a new Star Wars, a new Avengers film, a new Terminator movie, a Batman vs. Superman film… I’m sure I’m missing a few others.
What did we learn from yesterday’s story about Jurassic Park 4?
Well, if you actually listened to the podcast we linked to – which had director Colin Trevorrow discussing the film – you learned that the film’s script isn’t done and that there is the potential of the film sliding a bit further into the future if it needed to so the sequel could be done properly. That’s news.
And that makes me believe today’s bit of “casting rumor” news is bunk, but we’ll report it anyway for the sake of being thorough.
After hitting an unexpected delay, development on Jurassic Park 4 is back on track with a general release window of 2015 being given to the film a few weeks ago.
Now, director Colin Trevorrow spoke with the Schmoes Know about the progress of the film and seemed very optimistic about its future.
“It’s incredible to have Steven, who’s done this for decades and has such an incredible filmic knowledge and just understands the language of the story in a way that for us is very refreshing. It’s not like getting notes from a studio executive, it’s really just trying to crack this and make it the best it can be.”
Earlier this week, we learned Jurassic Park 4 is back on track and targeting a 2015 release. Today, JoBlo has an alleged plot description for the much anticipated big screen sequel.
As teased by director Colin Trevorrow in May, the site claims that the new adventure will return the action to Isla Nublar, the island upon which the first film took place (as opposed to Isla Sorna, which appeared in The Lost World and Jurassic Park III). There, a new Jurassic Park is already up and running as a successful theme park attraction with new, “tame” versions of some familiar dinosaurs. All is going well until a new (still unknown) dinosaur wreaks havoc.
