Josh Brolin is in early talks to join the cast of Universal Pictures' Jurassic World. No details were given in regards to what character he might portray, although the actor was originally being considered for this unspecified role before production was briefly delayed for script rewrites.
Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson are also in talks to star, although none of their deals have been finalized yet. No official plot details have been released, although we reported earlier this week that Nick Robinson is playing the older brother of Ty Simpkins' character. We reported this week that New Girl's Jake Johnson is in contention for another role, although his involvement has not been confirmed. Another story revealed that an ensemble cast is being built for the sequel.
Colin Trevorrow is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with his Safety Not Guaranteed writing partner Derek Connolly, based on an earlier draft by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). No story details have been confirmed, although the plot reportedly centers on a working dinosaur theme park on Isla Nublar, where the first Jurassic Park took place. It isn't known when production will begin.
