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.
