Documentary-Style "Dinosaur" Film in Development

Posted: May 3rd, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Documentary-Style "Dinosaur" Film in DevelopmentSubmit Comment
StudioCanal has picked up a pitch for "Dinosaur Project" (tentative title), which will begin filming later this month in South Africa with a budget of $16 million.

The entire project came together in November, when Sid Bennet, Tom Pridham and producer Nick Hill met with StudioCanal executives with an idea about a father-and-son documentary team who discover dinosaurs in the African jungle.

They had an outline, a showreel, a budget, a plan for the visual effects and a clear timetable to progress rapidly into production -- but no script. The studio immediately jumped on board. Pridham, who previously directed CGI-driven nature documentaries on the Discovery and Animal Planet channels, will direct.

"It was a very gettable pitch -- what would happen if you went into the jungle and found dinosaurs?" said the studio. "What was different about Sid and Tom was that they had the experience, and already knew how to do it at a price, and quickly. They said they could deliver a certain number of setpiece moments for the budget, including the money shot where you'd see a significant amount of dinosaurs."

Yeah, why bother with a script, it's all about the visuals anyway. I bet these dinos will look horrible in comparison to Jurassic Park's. That film is not as good as I thought when I was young, but the effects still stand tall.

@Freudian - Agree re: Jurassic Park. One of my biggest cinema 'wow' moments as a teen was the dinosaur reveal scene where you first see them.
