So, this latest rumor is based on pure speculation, however we felt it was still worth reporting on. Abbie Cornish recently appeared on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson", and let drop that she would soon be going to Hawaii. When asked if it were for a movie she coyly replied "It's a big secret, I am not going to tell anybody."
Check out the video here, starting at 32:22.
While this obviously could be anything, Jurassic World is the only high profile project that is filming in Hawaii soon without an offically anounced cast. While Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson have all been confirmed via various sources, Universal Pictures have yet to comment. Is Abbie Cornish up for a prominant supporting role in the film, much as Jake Johnson is expected to? Sound off in our comments and let us know what you think, and as always stay tuned for the latest on Jurassic World!
Early Jurassic World fence render leaked?

The image was posted on Reddit, but I've yet to find the original post or commented associated with this image. The user apparently posted this with the image:
"Another day at the office :) just thought you guys deserved a little "preview" Hold onto your butts...EBB Tide - The human toast"
At this point we cannot confirm it's legitimacy. The fences do look much more modern than the ones in the first Jurassic Park film. ILM are working on the visual effects for the film so it'd be interesting to find out if the software they generally use has a black interface.
First look at Jurassic World set construction!

OnLocationVacations.com is reporting that set construction has begun in Hawaii for the upcoming Jurassic World and have posted some pictures of the set being built that they received via a tipster.
The set is being built on the Kualoa Ranch where the original film was shot back in 1993. According to the website, the set can be seen from Pali Lookout, near Chinaman’s Hat and the fishpond. Apparently the tipset also spotted directional signs posted at the construction entrance that say 'EBB'.
'Ebb Tide' is the production name for Jurassic Park 4, and the film is set to film on Hawaii in April of this year and then move to Louisiana on June 2nd.
We also have some apparent set construction pictures from New Orleans - the first was posted a week ago on Instagram by the user Gerald Callahan, a set builder who claims to have arrived in New Orleans to work on #JurrasicPark. Take this currently as a rumour, but it looks like Jurassic World will be making use of the abandoned Six Flags amusement park in New Orleans. The user posted another photograph of set construction happening at the park.
We've not heard anything other than this about Jurassic World using the abandoned Six Flags park, but we know that the movie is filming in New Orleans so it's possible that this is true.
Stay tuned for more information as it comes in! Follow us on Twitter for more up to date information!
UPDATE: JPLegacy forum user SpielbergFan found a PDF containing the minutes from a meeting that the Industrial Development Board of the City of New Orleans had April 9th, 2013, which confirms that Jurassic World will be filming at the abandoned Six Flags park in New Orleans.
"Ms. Martin received and responded to several calls for use of the Six Flags site including Ebb Tide (Universal Studios), Reed Street Productions and Operations Black Sheep - two denials were sent out, the Ebb Tide request is pending"
The PDF can be found here. So it looks like set construction really has begun in New Orleans for the film and the abandoned Six Flags amusement park will be used. Here are some photos:
UPDATE [19/02/2014]: A new image of the set construction in Hawaii has surfaced. This one shows a bit more detail as to what's being built - which looks a bit like an auditorium of sorts. There's also a second new image, this time from Instagram, which shows construction of something in a different area in Hawaii.
What do you think is being built? Let us know in the comments!
