After Bryce Dallas Howard entered early talks for the female lead last month, casting continues on director Colin Trevorrow’s highly anticipated sequel Jurassic World.  Deadline reports that 12-year-old Insidious and Iron Man 3 star Ty Simpkins has booked a lead role in the film, confirming that the franchise staple of children being terrorized by dinosaurs will continue in this fourth entry.  Additionally, the report notes that New Girl star Jake Johnson may be in the mix for a role, which would reunite the actor with his Safety Not Guaranteed director.

Plot details are being kept firmly under wraps, but the film was initially scripted by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and boasts rewrites by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.  Expect plenty more casting news in the coming weeks as production looks to begin early next year in anticipation of the June 12, 2015 release date.

    I don’t want cute kids and feel good family time. I want men with Guns. Big F**king Guns. I want to see a Tiranosar get blasted in the face with a bazooka and then eat the f**ker with the bazooka.

      I’ve always loved this chapter title in ‘The Cigarette Diet’….

    its pg, what do you expect? the movie is taking place at an Amusement park, so not having any kids would be kinda unrealistic.

  • LostWorldSucked

    kids being chased by dinos = good. Kids killing dinos by doing gymnastics = bad.

    Every JP movie has (preteen) kids in somewhat leading roles. I don’t see why this new entry shouldn’t.

    Surprisingly, I totally approve. Ty Simpkins is cool and has charisma. He’s also not annoying, which is damn rare in a child star.

    • Strong Enough

      he was annoying in Iron man 3

      • The Flobbit

        He was trying to be annoying.

      • Strong Enough

        he was being himself

      • The Flobbit

        He was playing a role.

      • Strong Enough

        yeah hopefully he won’t be annoying in this one

      • The Flobbit

        Hopefully.
