There was Almost a Jurassic Park about Mutant Dinosaur Commandos


After years of gestation, scripts being worked on, scrapped, and worked on again, there appears to finally be some movement on a Jurassic Park IV, titled Jurassic World. It’s set to be released in 2015, and so far Bryce Dallas Howard is heading up the cast, with Chris Pratt rumored to join her as the other lead. But no matter how good or bad Jurassic World turns out to be, it will never, ever be able to match the insanity we nearly got about a decade ago. It was an idea so off the wall that the only explanation is an acid flashback by some guys who spent way too much time watching Dino-Riders and Ninja Turtle cartoons.

When Jurassic Park III was released and did solid box office despite being basically a high budget B-movie, rumors began swirling about what the next Jurassic Park could be. And out of the giant mess emerged one of either the most insane or genius ideas imaginable. The ┬ámost notorious script for Jurassic Park IV involved a plan to create a Dirty Dozen-style platoon of mutant dinosaur commandos, led by a mercenary named Nick Harris. Basically, it would have been like The Expendables except with humanoid dinosaurs instead of Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren…

Actually, you know what? It’s a lot more like The Expendables than I originally thought.

  1. This would have been a fun movie. Seriously there is no way all those scientists are going to be happy just making normal dinosaurs. Im sure a few would decide to mix the dna up a bit and cross breed some.
