Jurassic World casting update: Chris Pratt confirmed to star

Minor JURASSIC WORLD update for you today, some days after learning that Sam Neill's Dr. Alan Grant would likely not be returning to the series. You'll recall that, since November, ZERO DARK THIRTY/GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY star Chris has been rumored to be the lead in the upcoming dino-sequel, due to be released in 2015. And while we've not heard anything close to a confirmation, we get one today from an unusual source: Ron Howard!

You see, Ron's daughter Bryce Dallas Howard is confirmed to be in JURASSIC WORLD, along with Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins. At Sunday's Golden Globes, Ron snapped a pic of Chris and Bryce together, providing the following caption: "Bryce and Chris meet for the 1st time on red carpet they will be co-stars in next Jurassic."

Well, that's one way to meet your co-star…

Colin Trevorrow is directing JURASSIC WORLD; Universal will be releasing it on June 15, 2015.
