Failed 'Jurassic Park 4' Concept Art Shows How the Movie Might Have Looked


Steven Spielberg first brought us onto the dino-riddled island in 'Jurassic Park.' For 'Jurassic Park 2,' the dinos came to us, and 'Jurassic Park 3' brought some familiar faces back from the first. Not much is known about what we can officially expect from 'Jurassic Park 4,' other than that it's supposedly coming to theaters in 2014. But newly scrapped concept art for the fourth movie installment suggests it might be a whole lot different than we were probably expecting.

The most popular rumors surrounding the plot of the film involves genetically altered dinosaurs used as soldiers. Turns out, this idea was probably not far off from what was actually being developed for 'Jurassic Park 4.' Concept artist Carlos Huante presumably created the draft images (shown below), which were posted on Reddit.

As io9 points out, a draft of a potential 'Jurassic Park 4' script by John Sayles and Bill Monahan was published online a while back, and it gave us a possible background plot for these humanoid dino warriors:

The UN has created a task force to exterminate the dinosaurs [...] A bad-ass heavily-armed United Nations task force versus the dinosaurs. Bring it on! But then the script throws its first major curve ball, introducing Nick Harris, an unemployed soldier of fortune. Nick's the lead in the movie. Not Alan Grant. Not Ian Malcolm. Despite all the rumors to the contrary, those characters are not back for this film [...] Hammond's got a big idea: breed some new dinosaurs that can't reproduce and introduce them into the wild population. A Judas strain that will kill off the dinosaurs within one generation. Easy enough, except the UN has outlawed any breeding of new dinosaurs by anyone and they've prohibited the sale, mining, or possession of amber worldwide. Hammond's got scientists ready and waiting to go, but he needs genetic material to work with.

Do you think this could be the start of something amazing for the 'Jurassic Park' series, or is it disastrous? Check out the concept art below and decide for yourself.
