Briefly: This year, the film The Kings of Summer, from Jordan Vogt-Roberts, was the feature debut of actor Nick Robinson. Playing the film’s lead, Robinson did a great job as a high school kid who, dissatisfied with his life at home, builds his own house in the woods, with the help of two friends. The Kings of Summer has an undeniable influence from Steven Spielberg, so there’s something appropriate to the fact that Robinson is now in talks for a big role in Jurassic World, which Colin Trevorrow is directing for producer Spielberg.
We still don’t have a lot of story details, but Bryce Dallas Howard and Ty Simpkins are in talks for roles, and Robinson is said to be set to play the older brother of Simpkin’s character. Jake Johnson is also said to be a possible cast member. With casting clearly gaining speed, we should start to get more details about the film soon. [Variety]
