Bryce Dallas Howard In Talks For 'Jurassic World,' Will Mark First Lead Role Cast For Sequel


Now that we have a title and an official release date, "Jurassic World" is roaring right along. Producers are negotiating with Bryce Dallas Howard to star in the film, The Wrap reports.

The actress was rumored to be in consideration for the movie for some time, but we now officially know she received an offer. The rest of the cast remains unknown, meaning there's still hope that "Jurassic Park" alumni Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum will verify the rumors that they've considered reprising their roles for the long-gestating sequel.

"Jurassic World," originally titled "Jurassic Park 4," hits theaters summer 2015, a full 13 years after the movie was first announced. Colin Trevorrow ("Safety Not Guaranteed") will direct, based on a script he and "Guaranteed" scribe Derek Connolly wrote.
