Chris Pratt Sought for Lead in JURASSIC WORLD; Irrfan Khan Also Circling a Supporting Role

by     Posted 281 days ago


Riding sky-high off of his casting in the lead of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt is now in very early talks to join the latest installment of Universal’s prehistoric franchise, Jurassic World.  Talks are only in the earliest of stages at the moment and no plot details are available.  Pratt will have to make sure his Parks and Recreation commitments don’t interfere, and then his schedule should be clear for the Colin Trevorrow-directed picture.  Josh Brolin was previously reported as being eyed for the lead, but talks ended without finalizing a deal. The studio is also looking at Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi) for a supporting role.  Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins also star in the 3D sequel due out June 12, 2015. (Via The Wrap)

    Yeah Pratt no Khan. He couldn’t really act in English. Every time he was on screen in Spiderman his eyes were always looking off screen. I’m guessing que cards or something. He was better in Life of Pi but that was a smaller role

      I don’t mind his acting its just his weird accent which changes from time to time

        I know, right? Because Indians start speaking in American accent the moment they get off the boat.

    shizz i would quit parks and rec for this. lol

  • Adam Heatherly

    Whats holding the announcement of the original cast

    • The Flobbit

      Why would they ever return to the island, knowing what’s there?

      • Adam Heatherly

        I could possibly do one or the other again although i was . Looking for this one to reunite them all but no neill OR goldblum = no sale

      • The Flobbit

        I guess they might have a cameo – maybe as some old professor – “Don’t go to that island, son”…

      • Steven Ray Morris

        I too would love someone from the original cast to come back BUT this logic always makes me go, “Eh, it’s fine if they don’t come back, because who the hell would go willingly if they knew!!?!”

    I love Chirs Pratt, but I don’t know if he’s right for this role. His strength really relies on his comedic talent, something that I wouldn’t think would be a big part for the lead in a Jurassic Park movie. I would love for him to prove me wrong though.

      Have you seen him in Moneyball? Also don’t forget Vince Vaugh was a lead in The Lost World and he was great. I just hope at least one member of the original film is back, and I really hope its Lex, or Tim. This script must be amazing to be getting the talent they have coming together for this. I’m trying not to get to excited, but this is looking impressive.

      • Matty

        He was in Zero Dark Thirty too

      • MIXTER

        Tim would be a great Character to bring back, especially as he was great in The Pacific.

        Goldblum Cameo would be great if we see him leading a protest on the news to get the park shut down.

        Sam Neill, again, a Cameo maybe being interviewed. It always stuCk with me what he said in Jurassic Park 3, “Those aren’t Dinosaurs, they’re Monsters”

        WhiCh to me, is a great way of explaining the differences between the movie Dino’s and the real world Dino dinos. Either Mutated due to frog DNA, or, Engineered that way to be more palatable to audiences.

    • Alexander Calvo

      Comedic actors are almost always the best actors. It is much easier to make someone cry than to make them laugh.

  • The Flobbit

    Irrfan Khan…somehow that just seems right – Pi running from dinosaurs.

  • Jamesy

    Would be awesome if they got Idris Elba for a role in this, can just imagine him bitch slapping a raptor…epic.
