As director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) prepares to begin production on Jurassic World next year, he’s adding a Jurassic Park veteran to his team.  Trevorrow has confirmed that Phil Tippett, who acted as “Dinosaur Supervisor” on Steven Spielberg’s original film, will be working on Jurassic World.  Tippett, a visual effects supervisor specializing in stop-motion, initially planned to head up the stop-motion dinosaur effects on Jurassic Park before Spielberg opted to try out the nifty new CG technology after seeing tests of James Cameron’s Terminator 2.  Nevertheless, he stayed involved with Jp and supervised the animation of the dinosaurs given his extensive background in animal movement and behavior.  He also became a pretty funny internet meme. Not necessarily a reboot, Jurassic World is described as “a new sci-fi terror adventure” and will take place 22 years after the events of the first film.  The confirmed cast thus far includes Bryce Dallas Howard, »
