Steven Spielberg and Fox Television May Travel Back to Prehistoric Times

     February 17, 2010


Steven Spielberg may never return to Jurassic Park again, but it looks like he hasn’t lost his love of dinosaurs.  Variety reports that Spielberg and producer Peter Chernin are in talks to join the drama series Terra Nova, which follows, “a family from 100 years in the future who travel back in time 150 million years to the strange and inhospitable environs of prehistoric Earth.”  Perhaps the protagonists will be named Marshall, Will, and Holly and they’ll be on a routine expedition.  It’s possible they may encounter the greatest earthquake the world’s ever known.

Since the project would require elaborate sets and special effects, Fox is talking about picking up the series without the creation of a pilot “because it would be too expensive to shut down and start up again during the downtime.”  Additionally, there’s the added expense of paying the guy whose sole job is to whistle the theme from Jurassic Park.
