Jeff Goldblum to Remain Two Dimensional in Jurassic Park Rerelease
Jurassic Park, the 1993 classic of tyrannosaurus proportions returns to the big screen next Friday, and this time in 3d—most of it anyway. Despite a huge special effects budget and remarkable computer wizardry, Jeff Goldblum’s character, Dr. Ian Malcolm, will remain completely two dimensional.
CG Artists worked sleepless nights trying to transform Goldblum’s character into something that would be more then a simple Cassandra-esque plot device, a task that turned out fruitless.
“When we shot the film in the early 90s we had hoped that technology would advance enough to give Jeff’s character some depth,” said Director Steven Spielberg. “Clearly were not there yet, but overall I’m very happy with the project.”
Mr. Goldblum’s character, a quirky “chaos theorist” was well liked by theater goers, even receiving a revival in the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day.
Jurassic Park 3d hits theaters Friday April 12.
