Over at Bloody-Disgusting, this is quickly shaping up to be the Week of News About Sequels You Will Not Want to See -- hot on the heels of yesterday's report about Alone in the Dark II, the site is offering up a bit of incredible (in the worst sense of the word) news about Jurassic Park IV.From: Rotten Tomatoes
According to the item, casting for the sequel -- which has already been confirmed to feature Laura Dern -- is officially under way, with filming set to begin in Kauai later this year. But that isn't the incredible part, oh no. Straight from the article:
We're told that the film is about the government which has trained dinosaurs to carry weapons and use them for battle purposes.
Okay, not that the original Jurassic Park was Citizen Kane or anything, but we remember the thrill of seeing the first movie in the theater, and even though we long ago wrote off further installments in the series as deeply unnecessary, we're really struggling with the notion that anyone on the entire planet would think this storyline is a good idea. It really sounds like the kind of thing that might have been dreamed up by a precocious seven-year-old after a few too many bowls of Fruity Pebbles. Which puts it half a leg up on some of the other stuff we've seen in development, but still -- they have to be kidding, right?
