Even though Wanted is sure to lose this weekend’s box office battle against the most adorable robot in history, the R-rated, super-violent action movie is already paying dividends for those who made it. Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, the screenwriting team behind Wanted as well as last fall’s classy Western 3:10 to Yuma, have another screenplay in the works at Warner Bros., according to The Hollywood Reporter .

Not only are these two talented screenwriters getting more work, but their screenplay sounds pretty awesome. Titled All Creatures Great and Small, it imagines a future in which animals like lions and bears have evolved past humans, leaving us cowering in huts while they rule the world. “Because of people's inability to quench their thirst for oil and consumption of resources, we basically ruin the planet, and the planet fights back," Brandt explains, sounding probably unintentionally like M. Night Shyamalan talking about The Happening. But here’s the quote that probably is what got the screenplay in development: “[Creatures is a] big, fun, fantastic Jurassic Park-type movie."

Yup, I’m sold. These are screenwriters, after all, who are about to make an R-rated hit about a bunch of people who take their killing commands from a loom. They’ve got talent, and an original idea that is playing off all those global warming fears that everyone in Hollywood seems to be capitalizing on these days. Say it with me now: “Giant lions and giant tigers and giant bears, oh my!”
