“For me, Jurassic Park was really kind of my Star Wars. I lined up at the theatre to see it, I saw it opening night, I saw every sequel, I’ve seen it a whole bunch of times… for me that was my big movie, I think I was 13 or 14 when it came out. And so it’s a big deal for me to be any part of that, let alone this part I’m going to be playing. I’m thrilled about it.”
The film is directed by Colin Trevorrow (who helmed Safety Not Guaranteed). Steven Spielberg is attached to the project as producer. Besides Chris Pratt, the cast also includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, and Irfan Khan.
The release date of Jurassic World is set to June 12, 2015.
