According to Deadline young actor Ty Simpkins has joined the cast of Jurassic World, the fourth movie in the Jurassic Park franchise which will be directed by Colin Trevorrow. Simpkins is only 12 years old but he’s already appeared in a number of popular movies such as Revolutionary Road and both Insidious films. He’s probably best known for playing the kid Tony Stark bonds with in Iron Man 3.
So far Simpkins is the only confirmed cast member. Bryce Dallas Howard (The Village) is said to be in talks for the female lead, and New Girl actor Jake Johnson is also said to be in the mix, but neither have been confirmed by Universal.
A 2015 release date is being eyed, and filming will begin next year.
