Josh Brolin Eyed to Star in JURASSIC WORLD

This week has been a bit of a casting bonanza for Jurassic World, and after adding two youngsters in Iron Man 3’s Ty Simpkins and The Kings of Summer’s Nick Robinson, director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) is now eyeing a major star for one of the film’s adult roles.  Josh Brolin is reportedly in early talks to star in the Jurassic Park sequel, which is barreling towards a summer 2015 release date.  Details regarding Brolin’s character are unknown, but one imagines an actor of his caliber is being eyed for a lead.  Previous reports have described Jurassic World as an ensemble piece, much like the first Jurassic Park film, and that would seem to gel with the kind of cast that Trevorrow appears to be assembling.  More after the jump.

jurassic-world-logoNews of Brolin’s casting comes courtesy of Variety, which doesn’t shed much more light on the secretive project.  Bryce Dallas Howard is also in negotiations for a role, and New Girl standout (and Safety Not Guaranteed star) Jake Johnson is apparently being eyed for a role.  One imagines Johnson would make a great Jeff Goldblum-esque foil to a more stoic Brolin, and I’m really liking the direction Trevorrow is taking his cast thus far.

Brolin has yet to close a deal for the pic but all signs point that happening sooner or later.  The actor has a pair of fascinating projects opening later this year, as he leads Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy next month and he stars opposite Kate Winslet in Jason Reitman’s drama Labor Day.  Universal Pictures will release Jurassic World on June 12, 2015 in 3D.
