Right now, writing work is underway on the planned Jurassic Park 4, with the plan being still to have it in cinemas around 2014-ish. But it's taken a long time to get this far, with a couple of previous attempts to get the movie having hit the buffers.
One of those was centred around a script from John Sayles and William Monahan, which would have seen, er, genetically mutated dinosaur/dog/human creatures, made as a result of the DNA experiments that have underpinned the film series thus far.
This treatment did get quite far, with concept art and sculptures produced before someone, wisely, decided to pull the plug. According to the Jurassic Park IV fan site, who spoke to the artist Carlos Huante, when the artwork we're about to show you made it to the heads of Amblin, "they shut down the project almost instantly".
It's not hard to see why. It's no slight on the art, rather the idea behind it. Can you imagine a Jurassic Park 4 with creatures like these...?
