While attending the River to River Florence Indian Film Festival, actor Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire) sat down with THR where, among other things, he discussed his latest stateside project, Jurassic World. Check out an expert from the interview posted below!
What can you tell us about your upcoming role in Jurassic World?
I'm playing the park owner, a very flamboyant person. When the first Jurassic Park came out, I barely had the money to see it and now I'm playing a part. He's trying to entertain the world with good intentions, but sometimes being flamboyant doesn't mean having much wisdom.
What can people expect from this film, different from the original?
For sure it will have more vibe. It's the [Jurassic World](movie:32752) of these times, with all the technical experimentation. It has now become a fully-bloomed dinosaur amusement park. Dinosaurs in this film will definitely be scary, but this is not a horror film, so it will be like a scary adventure.
Was the filmmaking process difficult, with so many CGI costars?
As an actor what's most important is how the story and the director make you feel on the set and that's immaterial if you have CGI or real partners. If you have a good chemistry with the director everything's fine and I really loved the playfulness of the script and Colin's approach.
Directed by Colin Trevorrow, with Steven Spielberg serving as executive producer, Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the hugely successful Jurassic Park franchise from Universal Pictures, opens on June 12th, 2015.
