Jurassic World 2 is currently in production mode, as they establish enough of the cut in London before packing up and moving to the more tropical climate of Hawaii. With director J.A. Bayona taking the reigns of the sequel alongside producer Frank Marshall, fans are beginning to get a glimpse of what dinosaurs will be part of the blockbuster.
There will be some returning faces including the Dilophosaurus, but the teasers that have been dropped indicate a fresh cast of killers on the loose. As the Spanish filmmaker takes over from Colin Trevorrow, one of the key complaints in the first reboot was an over-reliance on CGI technology. And itnow appears as though Bayona has responded in kind.
Jurassic Journeys Underwater For An Epic Chase Scene
"Almost at the halfway point..." Yet again Frank Marshall posts another set picture showing us very little about the filming of #JW2 which is to be expected due to spoilers and piracy etc. Judging by the interior decor in this camera shot, the photo could have been taken in the new chosen set for filming, which is the mansion. We know the mansion might play a very important role in the sequel. As we can see there is a model dinosaur behind the glass. This suggests that the mansion could be John Hammond's old mansion or simply belongs to Ingen and maybe a rival company like Biosyn, could be a possibility. #jurassicworld #jurassicpark #jurassicworld2 #dinosaurs #dino #prehistoric #fossil #bones #dna #jp #jw #jw2 #filmmakers #filmmaking #new #film #jurassictrilogy #spielberg #tyrannosaurusrex #indominusrex #danger #action #actorslife #jurassic_park_fanpage_101
Speaking to MSTF Management, newly cast actor Kevin Layne explained that he will be given the part of a submarine pilot. As he went into detail, one key scene that he describes could steal the whole show.
"I remember getting advice from Lennie (his agent), 'Make sure you go looking like the part. You're a soldier, you're a mercenary. Think it. Be it,'" Layne recalled. "I read for two parts, and ended up getting the role of 'submarine pilot', which was the role I wanted as it is quite an epic scene. So I should have a nice cinematic moment on screen in a massive studio film. Filming starts in May hopefully I'll be in one of their amazing contraptions, pretending that there's dinosaurs around me. I've never worked with CGI before so it's fun and challenging. But I can now say to people 'You know there's no dinosaur there right?'"
Animation vs. Animatronics Decision Always Based On Movement
Although Trevorrow has taken a backseat as far as directing duties are concerned, he outlined the key principle behind their choice to create lifelike dinosaurs against occasions where CGI is necessary. From his perspective, the choice has always come down to the movement of the creature as the inclusion of the Indominus Rex altered the landscape for what they could use.
"I think the lack of animatronics in Jurassic World had more to do with the physicality of the Indominus, the way the animal moved." he remarked to Jurassic Outpost. "It was very fast and fluid, it ran a lot, and needed to move its arms and legs and neck and tail all at once. It wasn't a lumbering creature. We've written some opportunities for animatronics into (Jurassic World 2) - because it has to start at the script level-and I can definitely tell you that Bayona has the same priorities, he is all about going practical whenever possible.
There will be animatronics for sure. We'll follow the same general rule as all of the films in the franchise which is the animatronic dinosaurs are best used when standing still or moving at the hips or the neck. They can't run or perform complex physical actions, and anything beyond that you go to animation. The same rules applied in Jurassic Park."
