The new “Jurassic Park” movie is to shoot in an abandoned New Orleans, Louisiana theme park.

The production will take over the former Six Flags site just outside the city next week.

The park has been closed since just before Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans in 2005.

It was most recently used for scenes in “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” while it also featured in “Killer Joe” and “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.”
