JURASSIC WORLD Casting Call for Extras in Louisiana


According to the Hawaii Film and Video magazine, one of Hollywood’s most profitable movie franchises, Jurassic Park, now will return as Jurassic World to shoot in April at least four weeks on Oahu, followed by two weeks on Kauai.

Filming locations reportedly include the eleventh weeks at Celtic Media Centre in Baton Rouge,the largest film and tv production studio in the state of Louisiana, followed by the exterior locations in Sadn Diego.

As you certainly know, Colin Trevorrov-directed sequel now includes Jake Johnson, Chris Pratt, Bruce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, and Ty Simpkins (not mentioned Omar Sy?!), along with Steven Spielberg as an executive producer.

Jurassic World due to Trevorrow is set 22 years after the original film. What director will shoot there remains to be seen, but it’s been said that the film, originally set for a $200 million-plus budget, will feature underwater dinosaurs and a return to the Isla Nublar location that was seen in Spielberg’s 1993 original. Moreover, production sources claim an early script set the story in present-day isla Nublar, which is now an actual theme park as originally intended by the John Hammond character in the original film.

We all remember, Jurassic World set up shop on Oahu on the 18th floor of the Waikiki Trade Center, under the name Ebb Tide, back in January. Oahu locations will reportedly include the Honolulu Zoo, where the first day of filming is scheduled, and Kualoa Ranch, doubling for Isla Nublar.

Velociraptors, not known for their tolerance of that sort of thing, now will be used to help fight the threat, which begins in the form of a new dinosaur – not seen in the previous Jurassic Park installments – much smarter than originally and is the main cause of havoc breaking out at the park.

Jurassic World is slated for release on June 12th 2015.
