Idris Elba rumored to be cast in Jurassic World?

Actor Idris Elba went head to head with monster kaiju in this summer’s Pacific Rim. Could the actor now be gearing up to tackle dinosaurs?

According to Jurassic World Movie News, Elba is now in talks to join Universal and Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World — this reported by a source who’s “fairly close to Jurassic World’s development.”

Additionally, Acting Auditions — a completely different source — has Elba’s name listed as one of the cast members, along with the previously reported Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson and Josh Brolin. Interestingly, Brolin is marked as “in talks,” while Elba is listed as if he’s already been confirmed. Also, there’s no mention of New Girl’s Jake M. Johnson, who was also rumored earlier this month.

This is by no means confirmation that Elba will be in the movie, but the fact that this news comes from two different websites is a good sign.

Jurassic World is coming out June 12, 2015.
