See Terrifying Concept Art From The Jurassic Park 4 That Never Happened
Jurassic Park 4 is actually currently in the works, with Rise of the Planet of the Apes writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver writing the script, and a release date of summer 2014 in mind. But when you're making a sequel to a movie that enormous, of course there have been earlier versions of the story, and a glimpse at the Jurassic Park 4 that might have been has just emerged, and perfectly timed to Halloween, as it turns out.
The rejected concept art images come from a 2005 script written by William Monahan (Oscar-winner for The Departed) and John Sayles (director of indies like Lone Star and Matewan, but also write of more Hollywood films like The Spiderwick Chronicles and Battle Beyond the Stars). Around that time producer Frank Marshall was out there suggesting that Jurassic Park 3 director Joe Johnston would be returning and they were firming up the script, but of course, the movie in question never got made. And when you look at the human-dinosaur hybrids that would have been at the center of it, you might know why. Take a look at the handful of images below.
