The India Times is reporting that Irrfan Khan has been signed on for Jurassic World and that he is set to undergo flight training for his role in the film!
"Irrfan will play a rich NRI in the film, who owns the Jurassic Park. It's a new character as the film is more of a reboot than a sequel. Irrfan will be seen flying a helicopter in the film, for which he will be undergoing flight training abroad."
The website also spoken with Irrfan and he confirmed that he is attached to star in Jurassic World:
"Yes, I will be leaving for the shoot of Jurassic World by the end of this month and look forward to working with Colin Trevorrow. He is a new director. I loved his previous film Safety Not Guaranteed. He will bring in a new perspective and thus, a new look to the franchise."
It would appear that our article from Monday contained outdated information about Irrfan Khan's involvement with the film, and that he is now cast and awaiting the shoot. What are your thoughts? Could this be his helicopter pad?

KDramaStars is reporting the recent Kauai casting call for Jurassic World, and managed to speak with director Colin Trevorrow about the casting and the film. We know from the casting call that the production team is looking for men and woman, as well as children and twins ages between 10 and 15. They are also encouraging military types and people of different ethnicities.
The article also confirms a number of filming locations for Jurassic World in Kauai, which include the Blue Hole, Hanapepe Valley, Olokeke Valley, and Manawaiopuna Falls. The director had this to say:
"It's no surprise that casting directors are looking for families as extras. 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."
He went on to say that:
"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."
It's great to see Colin Trevorrow speaking more about the film and it looks like the film really is going to be about a new park that's more operation than in the first film! Stay tuned for more information as it comes in.
Open casting for Jurassic World set for Kauai!

Khon2 have reported that the open casting calls for Jurassic World in Hawaii are not over! This past weekend's open casting in Oahu went well, with people queuing up for several blocks, and now the casting team are heading to the island of Kauai for another casting on Sunday, March 16th.
The casting call will begin at 10:30am and end at 3:30am and will take place at Kauai's Community College's performing arts center. The call is asking for men, women and children ages 10-15 who are comfortable on the water and military. All ethnicities are welcome as the company is casting for international scenes.
The article also states that the auditions are completely free, so what are you waiting for?
On a side note, I think it's pretty safe to say that the film is about a new park and will show numerous visitors from all over the world visiting and seeing the dinosaurs. Nothing has been confirmed, but it certainly looks that way from the rumours and casting info we've been getting! Stay tuned for more. Thanks to Oviraptor for the article!
