Another big movie for him...
Deadline reports that Ty Simpkins (Insidous, Iron Man 3) has been cast in one of the lead roles for Jurassic World.

Universal will release the sequel, directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) on June 12, 2015. It will be shot in 3D.
Simpkins previously worked with producer Steven Spielberg on his film War of the Worlds (with Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning), which was his feature debut. Spielberg is producing with Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley. Simpkins other film credits include Revolutionary Road, Pride and Glory and Little Children.
The first three Jurassic Park films earned over $1.9 billion worldwide. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver wrote this latest film, with the most recent draft by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.
