Chris Pratt has confirmed that he will star in the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel.

The actor has been rumoured to be attached to a role in Jurassic World and has now been quoted by QMI as saying that he's definitely in the film, and that his role will be quite substantial, "It's a big deal for me to be any part of that, let alone this part that I'm going to be playing.

"I'm thrilled about it. Everybody around the world knows that franchise. When you say Jurassic Park, no-one is like, 'What's Jurassic Park?' More people know  Jurassic Park that just about anything. I'm thrilled."

Pratt also said he has been a huge fan of the franchise since childhood, "For me, Jurassic Park was really like my Star Wars. I lined up at the theatre to see it. I saw it opening night, I saw every sequel. I've seen it a whole bunch of times, for me that was my big movie, I think I was 13 or 14 when it came out."

Jurassic World is due to be released in June 2015 and director Colin Trevorrow has previously said that the film will be set 22 years after the original movie.
