We might have dodged a bullet when William Monahan and John Sayles‘ 2005 Jurassic Park 4 script never made it off the ground. Some recently-uncovered—but not official, according to ILM—concept art has given us a look at the truly weird movie their story concept would have resulted in. How weird, you ask? Dinosaur-human hybrids. That can use guns.
According to Reddit user sketchampm, who originally posted the pics, in the rejected script:
“…a secret genetics lab has been cross-breeding humans with dinosaurs. The result is an army of grotesque and intelligent humanoid dino freaks with problem-solving intelligence and the ability to fire automatic weapons. Yeah. Their storyline was scrapped but it apparently got much farther along in production than anyone realized.”
Hmmmm. I dunno—apparently Jurassic Park 4 is actually happening now, and this would certainly be an… interesting… way to renew the franchise. Whaddaya say, Spielberg? Is it too late for dinos with AK-47s?
