Dinosaurs and bloodthirsty cyborgs are expected in Louisiana this summer.
According to reports from NOLA.com, Universal Pictures plans to shoot the fourth installment of the ‘Jurassic Park’ franchise this June in New Orleans. The film, which is being executive produced by Steven Spielberg, will reportedly star Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt and Jake Johnson.
The Louisiana Film office confirmed the ‘Jurassic World’ production earlier this week, which is now the second high-profile Hollywood project that has been booked in Louisiana since ‘Terminator 5’ announced production plans late last month.
Paramount plans to bring Arnold Schwarzenegger to Louisiana to reprise the role that made him most famous. Production is expected to begin April 21 and run through the beginning of August.
Other films slated for production in Louisiana this year are the Will Ferrell comedy ‘Get Hard’ and Twentieth Century Fox’s ‘Fantastic Four. Both films are expected to begin shooting in March.
