Has Jason Schwartzman Joined the Cast of ‘Jurassic Park 4’?
Jason Schwartzman hasn't done much in the way of big action movies (unless you count 'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World') but that could all change as the Wes Anderson staple is in talks to join the cast of 'Jurassic Park 4.'
Hypable is reporting that Schwartzman, who recently wrapped 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' for Anderson, has been cast in the film, joining a cast that includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins ('Iron Man 3') and Josh Brolin. When reached for comment, Schwartzman's reps had no comment on the potential casting. (It's interesting to note that the casting of Simpkins is the only one that has been officially confirmed by Universal Pictures, though Howard confirmed her involvement.)
Directed by Colin Trevorrow ('Safety Not Guaranteed'), 'Jurassic Park 4' (formally titled 'Jurassic World') has been reported to be taking place at a now fully-functional theme park titled Jurassic World. As you might expect, dino hijinks ensue.
Schwartzman has a multitude of projects on the way including the aforementioned 'Grand Budapest,' the Tim Burton film 'Big Eyes' and this December's 'Saving Mr. Banks' with Tom Hanks.
Filming on 'Jurassic Park 4' is scheduled to take place early in 2014 for a June 12, 2015 release date.
