Hello again ladies and gentlemen of the internet, time for another LATE film news update thing haha. I wasn’t gonna blog about this before but as I’ve said before, if it is casting news related to a big enough film or one that I’m looking forward to, then I’ll blog about it. And Jurassic World is a film has me giddy for the epic summer that’ll take place in 2015. The following information comes from superherohype:

“Deadline is reporting that 12-year-old actor Ty Simpkins has landed one of the lead roles in director Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World. The site also says that New Girl star Jake Johnson is reportedly in the mix for a role in the film, but that remains unconfirmed.
Steven Spielberg returns to produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series with Trevorrow both directing and co-writing alongside Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are attached to produce alongside Spielberg. Actress Bryce Dallas Howard is also in negotiations for a role in the film.
Though most well known for playing Harley in this summer’s Iron Man 3, Simpkins has been acting for eight years and has had roles in Spielberg’s War of the Worlds and both Insidious films.
Jurassic World will be shot in 3D and is planned to hit theaters on Friday, June 12, 2015.”
Well this is a surprise. I mean the first person to be announced for the fourth film in the Jurassic Park film series and it’s a bloody kid! Random or what right? But in all honesty I’m not too fussed about it. If he was some proper unknown kid then it would bother me, and while technically he’s not overly well-known he’s been in some notable films including this summer’s Iron Man 3 where I thought his character was amazing and hilarious. So it seems like this film is staying true to the series by having children involved once again, what role he’ll play is beyond me, but I can only assume that he’ll be a son of some couple and he’ll join in all the dinosaur madness when that kicks in.
Anywho I think the kid has talent so I’m down with his involvement in the film, how about you lot? Whatever your thoughts, drop them below and I’ll see around, laters! 😀
