Every wonder what would happen if aliens and dinosaurs were pitted against each other? Neither have I, but apparently Barry Sonnenfeld has. According to Deadline, Sonnenfeld will join forces with comic book writer Grant Morrison to develop both a graphic novel and movie titled, ‘Dominion: Dinosaurs Versus Aliens.’ Morrison will be responsible for writing both the graphic novel and the script while Sonnenfeld will be directing the movie.
“Growing up, my fascination was all things dinosaur, and as an adult, I’ve had some success making films about aliens, so this is a dream come true,” Sonnenfeld was recently quoted as saying. In terms of when he first met Liquid Comics founder Sharad Devarajan when he wrote a forward for one of Liquid’s graphic novels, “We’ve been trying to do a project ever since.”
Mike Fleming from Deadline reported that “the graphic novel will chronicle a secret prehistoric world war battle. When an alien invasion attacks Earth in the age of the dinosaurs, the planet’s only hope is the giants that roam the planet with, it turns out, a lot more intelligence than previously realized. Sonnenfeld, Rifkin and Devarajan will produce, while Liquid cofounder Gotham Chopra will be executive producer. WME will package the film. The graphic novel will be published later this year in print and digital formats.”
