Colin Trevorrow is directing the Jurassic Park sequel

After taking its time putting a finishing polish on the script, Universal has moved fast to start casting with Bryce Dallas Howard in talks to star in “Jurassic World.”

The studio had been looking at Dallas Howard for some time, which Variety first reported in May. With the studio now setting a June 12, 2015 release date for the Jurassic Park sequel, Universal has returned to Howard with offers.

The studio has one more big role to cast before moving forward in the pre-production.

Colin Trevorrow will direct with a screenplay he co-wrote with Derek Connolly.

Plot details have not been released. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are producing.

In May, Uni postponed production on the project in order for Trevorrow and Connolly to take a pass at an original draft by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver and allow exec producer Steven Spielberg to give his notes as well.

Dallas Howard, who is repped by ICM Partners and Management 360, was most recently seen in “50/50.”

    Who cares about waiting until June 2015 for a sequel to JP4? Spielberg and company have been searching for a suitable script for 11+ years, Recently published, “Re-Creating the Cretaceous: A Tale of Survival” is the real thing. It’s an original story which runs circles around the JP4 sequels and which more than holds its own against the original JP novel. This is a story which Hollywood does not want you to read. Based upon the most recent DNA genome research, its story is now only well researched but also plausible. Forget the splicing of dino DNA with amphibian DNA, extraction of dino DNA from mosquitoes preserved in amber, and the cloning of lysine deficient female dinos. “Re-Creating the Cretaceous also introduces numerous recent discoveries of new dino species and incorporates them into its tightly woven story. For the very first time, it also introduces numerous species of marine dinosaurs in a realistic manner. Available now from all Amazon sites worldwide, as well as Barnes & Noble online and in Nook,Kindle and iPad e-book formats, “Re-Creating the Cretaceous” will make you not only forget the 13 year wait until 2015, but also the so-so actors and scripts being foisted upon moviegoers.

    Considering her dad is no oil painting, this Bryce Dallas Howard girl certainly looks pretty; though, her convincing performance as a racist housewife a couple of years back has made her scary.
