Welcome everyone! The last week or two have been pretty active in my home. It's been officially declared that we'll be doing our Easter presentation, "The King on a Cross" this year at our church! I'm SO excited! Over the last couple of weeks, we've had a sign-up sheet in our church for everyone interested in either acting in or helping with the play. So far, we've had quite a few people sign up. We haven't decided on a casting call date yet, but now that we have the participation, we'll be doing one pretty soon.
Anyways, let's do our "usuals" for this week!
It is: 4 days till Martin Luther King Jr. Day
It is: 17 days till Abraham Lincoln Day
It is: 27 days till Groundhog Day
It is: 29 days till Valentine's Day
In the Spotlight
|It seems as if Dr. Alan Grant won't be making a main part in Jurassic World.|
This week, we finally have something new concerning the upcoming movie, Jurassic World! Though it isn't what I'd actually call "good news". It seems as if Sam Neill, who portrayed Dr. Alan Grant in both the first and third Jurassic Park movies won't be in JW. This was revealed in a recent interview with The Examiner:
"I'm sure it's going to be great," says Neill, "but they don't need me . . . I think there's a whole new cast and a whole new look at things, and I think that's great. As I said, I'd never say no, but I wish them [well]."
Does this mean Dr. Alan Grant won't be in the movie at all? In fact, Neill only said "they don't need me". This doesn't seem to rule out the possibility of a cameo appearance.
As anyone who knows anything about JW will tell you, the confirmed actors for the film so far are Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson. There have also been numerous other rumors for other potential Jurassic World actors and actresses that have yet to be confirmed.
Well, this week, we now know another actor that will be in the new movie: Chris Pratt! This was revealed by Bryce Dallas Howard's father, Ron Howard. We don't yet know what part Pratt is playing, but we hope to know soon!

Another piece of news for the film is that we know they'll actually start filming JW. One of the locations they'll be filming in is somewhere in Louisianna, presumably New Orleans. Click here for a fuller story.
Jurassic World will be released on June 12, 2015. If this seems to long to wait, why not take a look at my version of the movie by clicking this link.
Also, the film Dolphin Tale 2 is finishing up the filming process in Florida. As with Jurassic World, there isn't much known about the film's plot, but hey, at least we know the majority of who's in it! (Unlike Jurassic World). The film is set to come out on September 19, 2014.
