Familiar 'Jurassic Park' Location Teased in 'Jurassic World' Set Photo
Following the death of Sir Richard Attenborough late last month, director Colin Trevorrow posted a picture of their tribute to him as John Hammond that will be seen in the forthcoming Jurassic World. Now another look behind the scenes shows off a familiar location to fans of Jurassic Park. In the original film, you might remember that Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) tried to smuggle dinosaur DNA out of the park in order to sell it on the black market But he got lost in a rainstorm and didn't know where to go. Well, since Jurassic World goes back to Isla Nublar, it looks like we're going to return to that area at some point.
Here's what Colin Trevorrow posted from the set of Jurassic World on Twitter:

And here's the original sign after Nedry knocked it down in Jurassic Park:
Now the film is done shooting, so this isn't a recent set photo. Trevorrow merely had the photo waiting to tease fans. This is the sign that Nedry crashed into and knocked over, leaving him unsure of how to get to the dock and deliver the stolen embryos. We're not sure how our characters end up at this location, or if we'll also see a certain Barbasol can stuck in the ground at some point (or any other remnants of the original park) but this is a nice touch and throwback to Jurassic Park.
Jurassic World is directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), who rewrote the script with Derek Connolly from an earlier draft by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). No plot details are available yet, but the film has been said to feature a new operational dinosaur theme park, just as John Hammond imagined over 20 years ago. The cast includes Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Jake Johnson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan and B.D. Wong, reprising his original role from Jurassic Park. Universal Pictures releases the film June 12th, 2015.
