KINGS OF SUMMER Star Nick Robinson in Talks to Join JURASSIC WORLD

by     Posted 317 days ago


Director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) continues to fill out the cast for the fourth Jurassic Park film Jurassic World, and it appears that he’s casting the younger roles first.  We learned yesterday that young Insidious and Iron Man 3 star Ty Simpkins had landed a lead in the film, and now Heat Vision reports that 18-year-old Nick Robinson is in talks to sign on.  Though plot details are being kept under wraps, Robinson is apparently in line to play the older brother of Simpkins’ character, with the film being built as an ensemble.  Robinson had a breakout lead role in this summer’s indie The Kings of Summer, and he should make a fine addition to the Jurassic Park franchise.

Bryce Dallas Howard is also in talks to star in Jurassic World, with New Girl standout Jake Johnson apparently in the mix for a role as well.  This certainly doesn’t feel like a “traditional” blockbuster cast, and that’s a good thing; it’s nice to see Trevorrow bringing his indie sensibilities to the JP series.  Expect plenty more casting news in the coming weeks.  Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015.

    This cast needs some diversity (and Goldblum). How about a Life Decoy Model of Mr. Arnold?

    I liked this guy in The Kings of Summer, so I’m excited for him. I would also like to see more diversity as well, such as those diverse in age (Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum), gender (Laura Dern and Julianne Moore), and race (Samuel L. Jackson).

      Samuel L. Jackson, sans one arm, no?

    yeah i’m definitely not liking how many kids they are casting. if it gets any more “kid-centric” than 3 was i’ll be disappointed.

      Somewhere along the way someone in Hollywood determined that Jurassic Park movies need kids to appeal to families. Because kids don’t want to watch a movie about dinosaurs if there are no kids. Or something.

      But if early reports are true and the action does take place in a functioning theme park, this would be the first time that having kids in the park actually makes sense.
