There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Jurassic World 3 Casting Extras For British Columbia Shoot Later This Month!

Jurassic World 3 - BC 1

It looks like the pre-production phase of Jurassic World 3 may almost be over – as our good friend Reel News Hawaii stumbled upon a casting call for the upcoming production in Merritt, British Columbia which evidence points to being Jurassic World 3, AKA ‘Arcadia’ (Update: it has since been confirmed to be casting for Jurassic World 3 by the British Columbia Film Commissioner).

Merritt is a smaller town about 3 hours outsid of Vancouver, with surrounding area featuring landscape which looks incredibly cinematic – with gorgeous, sprawling vistas, woodlands and hills creating a truly picturesque location which is bound to translate well when it comes to the big screen. It also looks quite a bit like where we last saw Blue the Velociraptor at the end of Fallen Kingdon.

This also matches up with additional information which we at Jurassic Outpost learned some time back, which pointed to the production heading to the Cache Creek area for some of the production time in Canada. Cache Creek is a village in British Columbia not too far from Merritt – so it certainly seems as though some of the shoot will be taking place in the surrounding areas.

The excitement doesn’t end there, however, as the casting call itself does have a few interesting details which we wanted to break down.

As we can see from the casting call in question, the casting agency are looking for both males and females to play Mill Workers, Fishermen and Townsfolk as part of the feature film. This could potentially suggest that the film will include sequences where we see civilians interacting with the dinosaurs – something which could be an interesting and meaningful way of picking up from the end of Battle at Big Rock. Indeed, a Carnotaurus rampaging through a busy mill, tearing it apart, or a Mosasaurus hunting down fishing ships in a Jaws-esque homage certainly sounds appealing and fulfilling for some initial set pieces within the film.

Regardless of whether this news has you excited or not, I think it is safe to say that this confirms that we may be seeing more than our standard isolated dinosaur incidents. It certainly looks like Jurassic World 3 is ramping up to provide larger-scale, city-sprawling events which will have real implications and ramifications for the world which our characters inhabit. How these events escalate within the new film, and how our return cast of characters will tackle them is entirely up to debate right now – but it is exciting to know that production on the third instalment of the Jurassic World saga is now within reaching distance.

As previously stated in an update to the article, the casting call has since been confirmed to be for Jurassic World 3! This is bound to be an exciting opportunity for anyone who lives in the area – and we encourage any readers living in British Columbia to get involved in this project. You never know – you might just see a dinosaur…

  6. Maybe post a link to the agency because I think a few commenters here are a bit confused. Yes it’s nice you’d like to be a part of the movie- if I could get up there I would too- but this is just an article giving people a heads up, not the actual casting call.
    I’d honestly love to be one of the extras that dies a horrible death lol
