After experiencing some delays in production, the fourth movie in the "Jurassic Park" series is back on track and looking to finalize its cast.

Variety reports that Josh Brolin is in talks for the lead role in "Jurassic World." This comes on the heels of unconfirmed rumors that Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins ("Iron Man 3"), and Nick Robinson ("Kings of Summer") are also set to join the cast. Very little is known about any of the characters except that Simpkins and Robinson would play brothers.

Director Colin Trevorrow ("Safety Not Guaranteed") will begin filming "Jurassic World" in 3D early next year for a June 12, 2015 release date. The dinosaur saga's newest installment was initially tabbed for a summer 2014 date, but Universal decided to delay due to concerns over the script. Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly undertook revisions.

"This is not a paycheck gig for me and it's not the movie that I'm making so I can make the movies that I really want to make," Trevorrow said on a podcast last month. "I actually want to make a kick-ass 'Jurassic Park' movie."

"Jurassic Park" fans very much want that, too.
