We have just about seen it all. Ninjas vs. Zombies. Aliens vs. Predators. Freddy vs. Jason. King Kong vs. Godzilla. Hot lead vs. Osama Bin Laden. Yet the biggest and most psychotic monster mash-up is still just on the horizon!
According to Deadline Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black) has come up with a new spin on the alien film genre. Sonnenfeld is at the center of a publishing/movie deal with Liquid Comics and producer Arnold Rifkin and his Cheyenne Enterprises. Sonnenfeld will team with comic book writer Grant Morrison to develop a graphic novel and movie under the title: Dominion: Dinosaurs Versus Aliens. Morrison, whose comic book work includes Batman and The Invisibles, will write both the graphic novel and the script. Sonnenfeld will direct the film.
“Growing up, my fascination was all things dinosaur, and as an adult, I’ve had some success making films about aliens, so this is a dream come true,” said Sonnenfeld.
The graphic novel will chronicle a secret prehistoric world war battle. When an alien invasion attacks Earth in the age of the dinosaurs, the planet’s only hope is the giants that roam the planet with, it turns out, a lot more intelligence than previously realized. Sonnenfeld, Rifkin and Liquid Comics founder Sharad Devarajan will produce, while Liquid cofounder Gotham Chopra will be executive producer. WME will package the film.
