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.”

The officials say Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's (boh BURG'-dahl) release was part of a negotiation that includes the release of five Afghan detainees held in the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The Defense Department violated U.S. law by failing to alert Congress before releasing five Taliban members in exchange for a captured U.S. soldier.
