Universal Locks Date and Renames 'Jurassic Park 4,' Three Actors Eyed for Roles

Literally within hours after Disney pulled Pirates of the Caribbean 5 from the summer 2015 schedule, Universal has slotted its next Jurassic Park movie into the summer fray.

Jurassic Park 4 has been renamed Jurassic World and will arrive in theaters June 12, 2015.

Plot details were not revealed, but Universal has previously delayed production of the film in May so that director Colin Trevorrow and producer Derek Connolly could take a pass at the script, with input from Steven Spielberg.

Variety reports that the studio is moving into the casting phase now and has been eyeing Bryce Dallas Howard, David Oyelowo and Garrett Hedlund as potential actors for the film.

Howard played Victoria in two Twilight movies (Eclipse and Breaking Dawn--Part 2) and also starred in The Help, Spider-Man 3 (as Gwen Stacy) and Terminator Salvation (Kate Connor).

Oyelowo can currently be seen in Lee Daniels' The Butler and was recently added to Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. He's also starred in Jack Reacher, Lincoln and Red Tails among a number of other movies.

Hedlund is one of those actors Hollywood seems determined to make into a star. He's played the lead in Eragon and TRON: Legacy and can be seen later this year in Inside Llewyn Davis.

Would you like to see any of these actors in the movie? Do you have someone else in mind for this next Jurassic Park movie? How excited are you to have a new chapter in the Jurassic Park franchsie finally back on the big screen?
