The thing I love most about the long-rumored Jurassic Park sequel/reboot/remake/relaunch/question-mark?!?!?!!?—which has now apparently been dubbed Jurassic World—is that I KEEP FORGETTING ABOUT ITS EXISTENCE. And then it's like dinosaur Christmas over and over again every time a new piece of info hatches under the watchful eye of B.D. Wong and I have to spend the rest of the week holding on to my butt in excitement. (What I'm saying is that I like Jurassic Park.)

JP's latest piece of dino news: Bryce Dallas Howard has confirmed her role as a female lead. Via The Mary Sue:

Bryce Dallas Howard‘s involvement in Jurassic World has been rumored for a while, but it wasn’t until she mentioned it offhandedly to USA today that we had confirmation. In a conversation that mostly revolved around her relationship with her dad, Ron Howard, and whether they’d ever work together, Bryce confided:

"They’re relaunching the Jurassic Park franchise, so I’ll be chasing dinosaurs. That’s going to happen next year."

Chasing dinosaurs, eh? Not the other way around? There’s very little we know about Jurassic Park IV, or Jurassic World, as it has been rechristened. But Howard isn’t the first to give the movie the “re-” prefix. Sam Neill himself says he was told that it would be a reboot. Whether we’re in for a brand new species or just a continued evolution, the movie’s going to have dinosaurs in it, and that will put my butt in a seat.

Now, on to the next big question: WILL SOMEBODY FINALLY APPRECIATE ALEJANDRO'S CHILEAN SEA BASS?
