Now that Jurassic World has wrapped filming and is now more than likely being admired over in the editing suite, news on the film is fairly quiet. I thought I'd round up some of the recent interviews that talk about the film. Speaking with ComicBookMovie.com, actress Judy Greer spoke about her role in the upcoming Jurassic World.
"And while she wouldn't reveal whether her character meets up with any dinosaurs, Greer did confirm that she'll be playing Bryce Dallas Howard's sister in a "small, but poignant" role."
Irrfan Khan spoke with First Post Entertainment about filming Jurassic World.
"It was so much fun," said Khan. "Though it is a huge epic project, everyone on the crew was so relaxed. There was no attempt to appear self-important. Throughout the shooting there was a sense of playfulness in the atmosphere. I felt completely at home and we wrapped up the film in record time." Talking about his director, Khan said of Trevorrow, "Just observing him at work I felt so much richer."
While he plays the park owner in the movie, it looks like he won't have a hefty amount of screen time, as he describes below.
When asked about the length of his role in Jurassic World, Khan was diplomatic. "I am very happy with what we’ve shot," he said. "How the role finally shapes up depends on so many things. I appeared for much less screen-time than I had shot for in Slumdog Millionaire and Spiderman. But that was for the betterment of the final product. No one in the West is waiting to upstage me or sabotage my career."
And finally, our friend Scallenger managed to get an interview with Trespasser writer Austin Grossman. Be sure to check that out here, and check out the full Jurassic Time website for more cool stuff.
Colin Trevorrow pays tribute to Richard Attenborough

Director of Jurassic World Colin Trevorrow has taken to Twitter to pay respects to actor Sir Richard Attenborough, who passed away yesterday at the age of 90. Richard Attenborough is most famously known as playing John Hammond in Jurassic Park and he often talked about how he'd love to return for Jurassic Park 4, if Steven Spielberg ever called him.
While in recent years we knew that it might not be possible, it looks like John Hammond will be remembered in the upcoming Jurassic World. The director tweeted this image with the quote "In Memoriam."
While not confirmed, it looks like this is an image from the set of Jurassic World - not to be confused with this statue from Universal Studios Japan. The building design matches the design of the Jurassic World IMAX theatre.
The tributes have been pouring in for Richard Attenborough, with Steven Spielberg saying "He was a dear friend and I am standing in an endless line of those who completely adored him".
Richard Attenborough has passed away at 90

According to the BBC, 90 year old Jurassic Park actor Richard Attenborough has passed away. The report states that he passed away lunchtime on Sunday, according to his son.
It was well known that the actor had been living in a nursing home with his wife and over the past few years had suffered deteriorating health. In 2008 he suffered a fall in his home after a stroke and was confined to a wheelchair ever since. In 2013 he moved into a nursing home with his wife as, according to his brother David Attenborough, they both needed full time care.
While I did find a weird article from 2 days ago that claimed his recent death report was a hoax, it does seem as though this is true, especially if the BBC have reported it.
Such a shame. Goodbye Pinkie Brown. Goodbye John Hammond. Goodbye Richard Attenborough. Rest in peace.
LEGO sets confirmed for Jurassic World!

We reported earlier this month that there may be LEGO sets made for Jurassic World after Chris Pratt let is slip during an interview. While there was a chance that he meant Hasbro's KRE-O brand, we now have another report from The Brick Fan which further confirms that there will be LEGO Jurassic World sets.
"Hulk_Smash on Eurobricks has seen some preliminary images of some of the 2015 LEGO sets and in those images, there will indeed be some LEGO Jurassic World sets. They did not mention how many sets will be in the wave or the details of them but at least there is now confirmation that there will be some sets in conjunction with the upcoming movie."
So there you have it - looks like you'll be able to grab some LEGO Jurassic sets next year, too! What kind of sets are you hoping for?
