Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neill, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard have all roamed this land with the dinosaurs, but now it’s in danger of being ravaged by Mother Nature … so everyone’s gotta get the hell out.
The Kualoa Ranch in Oahu, Hawaii — a famous filming location known for “Jurassic Park” and “Jurassic World” — has canceled all of its tours and closed its facilities as the island prepares to take a possible direct hit from Hurricane Lane.
The category 3 storm already dumped a ton of rain on Hawaii’s Big Island Thursday, and is threatening to become the first hurricane to make landfall on the state since 1992 when Hurricane Iniki struck … and interrupted filming of ‘JP’!
Even if Hurricane Lane doesn’t make landfall, residents are still being warned of life-threatening conditions, such as treacherous winds, flash floods and possible mudslides.
TV shows, like “Hawaii Five-0” and “Magnum P.I.,” that film on the island have shut down production for safety purposes as well.
Along with being well-known for the ‘Jurassic’ movies, Kualoa has also been featured in films like “Godzilla,” “50 First Dates,” “You, Me and Dupree,” “Mighty Joe Young” and some of Elvis Presley‘s 1960s classics.
