James Cameron Wanted a Much Nastier Jurassic Park
For many horror fans, Jurassic Park is holy ground riddled with lots of thrills and dinosaur mayhem. The film is a modern classic, deserving of all the love and attention that it gets. Ever wonder what director James Cameron would have done with it? Read on to find out!
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Cameron revealed that he always wanted to make a Jurassic Park movie, but Steven Spielberg beat him to the punch. What would his approach have been like?
"I'd have gone further," says the director. "Nastier, much nastier. Mine would have been 'Aliens' with dinosaurs."
Cameron continues, "When I saw the film, I realized that I was not the right person to make the film; he was. Because he made a dinosaur movie for kids... Dinosaurs are for 8-year-olds. We can all enjoy it, too, but kids get dinosaurs and they should not have been excluded for that. His sensibility was right for that film."
Universal has set Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) to write the script for the fourth Jurassic Park film, which will be produced by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy. Spielberg won’t direct.
Look for more on this one (hopefully) soon!
