Why have one major franchise when you can have two?  A couple months ago, we reported that Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt was being sought for the lead in the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel, Jurassic WorldBryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer), and Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3) had already signed on, and now Ron Howard has tweeted that “Bryce and Chris meet for the 1st time on red carpet they will be co-stars in next Juraissic”.  We don’t know any details on Pratt’s role or anything on the plot beyond being “a new sci-fi terror adventure” that will take place 22 years after the events of the first movie.

Pratt’s voice will soon be heard in the lead role of The LEGO Movie on February 7th, and then he’ll be leading Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1st.  Filming on Jurassic World is set to begin in Louisiana on June 2nd for a June 12, 2015 release date.

    Someone in Hollywood really wants Chris Pratt to be an A-lister.

    If you had told me back when I first started watching Parks and Rec that Andy would have a significant part in two Oscar level dramas, the lead in a Marvel movie, and the lead in the next Jurrassic Park all while still on Parks and Rec, I probably would have laughed at you.

      Yeah, sadly he’s losing his hair before he can be a star. Better get those films done quick. He seems like a great guy though.

      • Pk

        Whoa so I’m not just seeing things. The guy really needs to do a hair transplant if he wants to make it as a A list lead actor.

      I just hope the filming doesn’t take him away from Parks and Rec too much (if they have another season). The show wasn’t the same without him in the first half of this season while he was filming GOTG.

    Someone seems hell bent to try and stick him in every film possible in the foreseable future. He’ll either be the next Taylor Kitsch or Michael Fassenbender pending on how well his performance turns out. Both of which are supporting actors but one is respected while the other not so much.

    • Leo Spaceman

      As long as he doesn’t become the next Shia LaBoof. Its hard to remember when he was just Louis Stevens.

      It would be heart breaking if he started doing porn.

        I miss those Even Stevens days. No sense of douchebaggery back then. Just a nice kid who like to act.

      • Leo Spaceman

        I know, whats living if you never pull your pants down and slide on the ice?

    • http://thenonessentials.blogspot.com/ Sean Chandler

      Those seem like three very strange people to compare. I kind of get Kitsch and Pratt since they’re both from a television background, But comparing Taylor Kitsch with Michael Fassenbender?

      • Leo Spaceman

        I think DNA was talking more about how they suddenly showed up in everything right when they got on the movie scene. Fassbender got the right roles and now is considered an acting powerhouse and Kitsch got John Carter and Battleship which were box office poison within months of each other and it sunk his ship.

        Both actors had tons of films that they had become attached to before anyone really saw if they had what people wanted to see in larger/starring roles. Taylor Kitsch’s it was John Carter, Battleship and Savages that were all released in the same year. Someone seemed to try and cram him in every movie possible to bank on the hype that he was the next big thing in Hollywood. The same w Fassenbender a little while after 300 came out but he actually is the real deal in acting. But again he was unproven but w a few performances and someone tried to get him to sign off on as many films as possible in a short amount of time. The same seems to be the same w Pratt. He’s been good in TV and in small supporting roles but never in the spotlight. This will be a good test to see if he can hold his own.

      Poor Taylor Kitsch. The man is a good actor, but he’s been dealt a shit hand in cinematic life.

  • Steven

    Why do I get the sense the world will end before 2015. Seeing all these massive films will be insane.

    • lordjim

      how is another sequel to a very tired franchise massive?

      • herpderp

        3 films in 21 years is hardly tired. If they have a good story then it will work.

    • Brett

      They just need to announce Jaws 19.

  • Crockett

    “Bryce and Chris meet for the 1st time on red carpet they will be co-stars in next Juraissic”. Ron Howard can’t spell Jurassic?

  • The Flobbit

    I don’t give a hoot about Chris Pratt. I want Idris Elba and Josh Brolin kicking T-Rex ass.

    This is my most anticipated Film of next 3 years.
    LOVE this cast.
    Loved Safety Not Guarenteed.
    Can’t wait.

  • Pk

    What’s next? He will be playing the lead Jedi in episode 7?

  • Mike

    Before you say something about how someone must want Chris Pratt to be the next big thing, consider the lesser buzzed about Jason Clarke. He is starring in the Planet of the Apes sequel as well as recently landing the gig for the next Terminator film. Producers see certain stars as dollar signs and will cast them in a series of films. Same thing happened to Sam Worthington back with Terminator Salvation, Clash of the Titans, and Avatar.
