Bryce Dallas Howard is in early talks to take on one of the lead roles in Universal Pictures' Jurassic World. The actress had been rumored to be in contention for some time, although an offer was only recently made.

The only details regarding the story that have been confirmed is the addition of a brand new dinosaur and the setting of Isla Nublar. We reported in June that the story may center on an actual working park with real dinosaurs, that attracts millions of tourists each year. However, those details have not been confirmed as of yet.

Colin Trevorrow is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with his Safety Not Guaranteed collaborator Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley are producing for Universal, which has set a June 12, 2015 release date. It isn't known when production may begin.
