NEW ORLEANS — Universal Pictures' long-awaited Jurassic Park sequel, Jurassic World, will shoot in New Orleans for 11 weeks starting June 2.

The film is the fourth in the Jurassic Park franchise and will be executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, who directed the 1993 first installment, based on the book by Michael Crichton.

The latest production update from the Louisiana Film Office released Wednesday means the New Orleans area has landed its second high-profile sequel in just a few weeks.

Terminator 5 was confirmed in mid-January to be drawing actor Arnold Schwarzenegger to town for an extended shoot. Filming on that Paramount-backed project is expected to last from April 21 to Aug. 1, reported The Times-Picayune.

Other major projects on the horizon for the New Orleans area include Warner Bros.' Will Ferrell comedy Get Hard, set to start filming March 17; and Relativity Media's Nicholas Sparks-penned drama The Best of Me, starring James Marsden and set to start March 6.
