Ron Howard Confirms Chris Pratt For 'Jurassic World'

Like a proud father on prom night, Ron Howard snapped the above photo of his daughter, actress Bryce Dallas Howard, with Chris Pratt on Sunday at the Golden Globe Awards, and in the process confirmed the Guardians of the Galaxy star for a role in Jurassic World.

"Bryce and Chris meet for the 1st time on red carpet they will be co-stars in next Juraissic," Ron Howard tweeted.

Pratt will presumably play the lead, although no details have been unveiled just yet. Colin Trevorrow of Safety Not Guaranteed fame is directing the fourth installment of the Universal Pictures franchise, which reportedly takes place 22 years after the original.

Pratt and Howard join Jake Johnson (New Girl), Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer) and Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3) in the movie, which opens June 12, 2015.
