Bryce Dallas Howard in talks to join Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World

Sep. 26, 2013by: Paul Shirey

TERMINATOR SALVATION and THE HELP star Bryce Dallas Howard is reportedly in negotiations to join director Colin Trevorrow's JURASSIC WORLD, according to The Wrap. Howard (daughter of director Ron Howard) has played in genre material before, including roles in SPIDER-MAN 3, THE VILLAGE, and THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, so she's certainly no stranger to big budget material. No details on what her role would be, as the lid has been kept pretty tight on this one.

The only other casting rumor we've heard for the project before Howard was John Krasinski, but everything else has been all quiet, minus the recent title change from JURASSIC PARK IV to JURASSIC WORLD. With the likelihood of the park being up and running, I would put my money on Howard's character somehow being attached to the park already. I sincerely doubt they're going to rehash the whole "specialists coming in to endorse a proposed park" thing. Any takers on that bet?

JURASSIC WORLD is set to open on June 12, 2015.

Beautiful, but Howard does not give me full confidence based on her previous material.

"SPIDER-MAN 3, THE VILLAGE, and THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE so she's certainly no stranger to big budget material."
Yup, she's no stranger to big budget letdowns either.

Just saying

She was in the movie that killed the first Spiderman franchise and a movie that ended The Terminator franchise, I smell a Jurassic Park reboot a few years after this is released.

She wasn't what was wrong with Spider-Man 3 though. And, if it's a bad luck charm you're worried about, she didn't end the Twilight franchise when she came aboard (though you could argue that actually validates your claim, too).

She also ended M. Night Shyamalan's string of good to great movies. She was in The Village, which really went downhill after the reveal and the shift to her character becoming the focus. Plus, she then starred in the awful Lady in the Water. Might as well blame her here as well.

But that would be stupid, because she did not write, direct, or do anything other than play one role in these films. It is ridiculous to blame her for quality issues in a movie, since she was not bad in them.

Besides, excluding Terminator, her other two franchises made a lot of money, so she is not box office poison.

A great lead for the film.

I'm happy to see Universal reaching for an actual actress instead of just eye candy.

I would love it if Bryce is the lead character in the film. I could get behind them letting a woman drive the JP franchise instead of just running and screaming for a change.

In a weird way, Howard seems very fitting for this type of movie. She has the look of a stereotypical scientist which is a necessity given the bewilderment of the scientists in the original.

I could see Howard as one of the scientists breeding the dinosaurs.

Would be happy with this casting :-)

I would be fine with her being casted. She's a great actress and is very pretty to look at. And hey, if they cast Krasinski too then even better. Maybe her character will be the new Ellie Sattler of this new film. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to cast like anther Alan Grant or Ian Malcolm just to have the similarities with the old cast and new cast.

It's just funny how she keeps joining franchises later on in the sequels. Spider Man 3, Twilight, Terminator, and now possibly this.
