If you've ever dreamed of being part of the "Jurassic Park" film franchise, your big chance is a little over a week away. The only problem? You'll need to be on the Island of Kauai in Hawaii to make that dream come true.
Casting officials for director Colin Trevorrow's "Jurassic World
" film, the fourth in the franchise, have announced a call for extras starting March 16th at Kauai Community College. They're looking for men and women, and children between the ages of 10 and 15, as well as military types, and a variety of ethnicities: Asians, Europeans, Middle Easterners, African Americans, South and Latin Americans and North Americans.
With "Jurassic World" expected to revolve around a successful dinosaur theme park on Isla Nubar (the setting, according to Trevorrow is 22-years after the events of the first film
), it's no surprise that casting directors are looking for families as extras.
Location shots on Kauai are expected to include, according to The Garden Island
, the Blue Hole, Lawai, Olokele Valley, Hanapepe Valley and Manawaiopuna Falls.
"It's important to make a movie for the fans but I also have to remember that there's a lot of people who just couldn't care less and need me to make a solid case for why the hell there's a 'Jurassic Park 4' in the first place and I want to make a movie for them too," Trevorrow said last year
. "... This is not a paycheck gig for me and it's not the movie that I'm making so I can make the movies that I really want to make. I actually want to make a kick-ass 'Jurassic Park' movie."
