R.I.P. John Hammond
Richard Attenborough’s spirit will have a presence in Jurassic World. Director Colin Trevorrow shared a photo today honoring the late actor.
The picture, from the set of Jurassic World, shows a statue of Attenborough’s likeness as John Hammond, the founder of the park. Attenborough, who passed away on Sunday, starred as Hammond in the original Jurassic Park.
Fantastic homage to recently deceased actor Richard Attenborough. Titled My park by Griggsnuff.
Farewell, Richard Attenborough. We knew you as Bartlett, Lauderdale, Hammond and Kringle. You introduced us to Gandhi, took us to war, and made us believe in Santa Claus and that dinosaurs could walk again. For this, we thank you. May you rest in peace.

Jurassic Park: The Return
Submitted by Jack De La Mare
This is a Jurassic Park fan film that fills the gap between the first trilogy of films (1993-2001) and the upcoming Jurassic World (2015). We are taking inspiration from the original Michael Crichton novels and developing a story that not only excites fans of the franchise, but also will excite the general audience. This will be a standalone Jurassic Park movie that can fit on your shelf right next to the current films.
Before we make the feature film - which is currently being written, we are heading to Oahu, Hawaii to film a short film to help promote the feature but also show what we as a team can make. We want to prove that we are the right people for a Jurassic Park fan film.
Our Visual Effects Supervisor, Sarah A. Char (Fast & Furious, I Am Number Four) will be bringing us a team of talented animators who will create and animate realistic dinosaurs in realistic surroundings. Realistic visual effects are something so important for a film like this so we only will take the best of the best.
When I was 14, my friends and I made a Jurassic Park fan film called Prime Survival. Now that we have all developed as filmmakers and come a long way since then, we want to finish what we started, as it were. I want to make a film that holds up alongside the originals and that people can be excited for!
Please help us make this become a reality!
