Thailand warns ‘Jurassic world’ producers not to damage beaches, parks

THAILAND officials warned producers of the multimillion-dollar action film ‘Jurassic world’ not to damage natural resources in the country while filming the next installment of the blockbuster franchise.

Thailand will soon host another blockbuster movie decades after a Hollywood film made a natural wonder in the kingdom one of the most famous destinations in the world.

The director-general of the Department of Tourism last week said a world-class film crew from Hollywood is preparing to shoot the movie “Jurassic World 4” in Thailand.

The shooting period will run for about one month, from June 13 to July 16, 2024.

Shooting for parts of the long-running dinosaur series will take place in Bangkok and at national parks in Krabi, Phuket, Phang-nga, and Trang.

Hollywood superstar Scarlett Johansson has reportedly been lined up to star in the seventh movie of the blockbuster franchise.

The Minister for the Natural Resources and Environment said Thailand was “honored” to host the filming but warned the producers of the movie to comply with relevant laws and regulations, and not to damage the country’s natural resources.

A big-budget Hollywood movie titled “The Beach” and starred by Leonardo di Caprio filmed in southern Thailand’s Maya Bay made the natural wonder one of the world’s most famous destinations but also gained widespread criticism from local authorities for its environmental impact.

Thai officials made the warning after local authorities filed a lawsuit in 2022 over the environmental harm of the Maya Bay.
