It’s been about a couple of months since we told you guys anything about the upcoming cinéma-vérité effort from StudioCanal featuring nature’s greatest creatures, dinosaurs, but there’s been a slight development we wanted to keep you abreast of.
Variety is reporting that The Dinosaur Project (tentative title) starts shooting this month in South Africa.
The film marks the directorial debut feature from CGI experts Sid Bennett and Tom Pridham, who recently formed their own production company Kent Films. StudioCanal is handling world sales.
The project is described as “Jurassic Park meets Blair Witch in the style of District 9.” But producer Nick Hill also notes: “It’s not grainy hand-held; it will look beautiful and crisp and clear.”
The Dinosaur Project will tell the story of a father-son expedition in the Congo, being followed by a TV documentary crew. After all the parties mysteriously go missing, recovered footage shows stunning images of dinosaurs thought to be extinct for 65 million years.
Look for more soon!
