Josh Brolin may be offered the lead in Jurassic World

10.18.2013

Colin Trevorrow is building up quite the cast for JURASSIC WORLD. IRON MAN 3's Ty Simpkins and KINGS OF SUMMER's Nick Robinson will play the brothers at the center of the story while rumors are still swirling that Bryce Dallas Howard will be the lead female. Now The Wrap is reporting that Josh Brolin is close to being offered the lead male role in the film.

If Brolin gets cast, I wonder if he will play the father to Simpkins and Robinson or some sort of role similar to Sam Neill's Dr. Grant. I would like to see him play a scientist who is drawn into the mix and has to protect his kids in the wake of dinosaur mayhem. Or, that may be a little too easy. Brolin plays a good douche-bag so having him as the villain would work as well.

Whichever route they take, I just want the spirit of Steven Spielberg's movie to remain the inspiration for the project. Joe Johnston's JURASSIC PARK III may have been flawed but it was still in keeping with the first two films.

JURASSIC WORLD is slated to hit theaters on June 12, 2015.

He's an excellent actor, so that could work. Hopefully we find out in the not-too-distant future about Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill--whether they will appear or not. If they do, I really hope it is more than just an extended cameo for each.

I like Brolin and, for most other series, I'd be behind the 'reboot' casting.

But honestly, maybe because the first two sequels weren't masterpieces anyway, and I have such fond nostalgia for the original, I *WANT* the full original cast back for this one. I get that it would be forced and unrealistic for them to become trapped on an island again, but fuck it, it'd be cool as hell to see at the very least both Neill and Goldblum back again. Even if Brolin and the kids are in this (I get the vibe that Trevorrow is going for a Super 8-style Spielberg homage with the heavy

Even if Brolin and the kids are in this (I get the vibe that Trevorrow is going for a Super 8-style Spielberg homage with the heavy casting emphasis on kids, btw), they should still throw Neill and Goldblum into the mix. And this may sound cold-hearted but they should really take advantage of the fact that Richard Attenburough is still alive to put him in there too -- it's like not putting Sean Connery in Indy 4, it's a waste of great talent that won't be around much longer.

Awesome I'm a pretty big fan of Brolin especially after No Country For Old Men.

I hope he signs on. He's a terrific actor and would love to see him join the crew.

Now when is Goldblum going to sign on?
