Chris Pratt circling lead role in Jurassic World - Josh Brolin out?

A few weeks ago we shared that OLDBOY star Josh Brolin was in talks to take the lead role in director Colin Trevorrow's upcoming JURASSIC WORLD but now The Wrap is reporting that the talks failed to lead to a deal, leaving the door open for another actor to take the lead in the Steven Spielberg-produced flick. Now it seems that JURASSIC WORLD is beckoning GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and "Parks and Recreation" star Chris Pratt for the role.

Discussions are in the early stages and Universal is not commenting on casting speculation, but if Pratt lands the role he will be joining Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins in the 3D sequel, which is also courting Irrfan Khan (LIFE OF PI) for a supporting role.

Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a draft of the screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley join the team as fellow producers.

JURASSIC WORLD has been scheduled for a June 12, 2015 release.
