How cool does a Pirate and Zombie Dinosaur crossover flick sound? You could have Johnny Depp in his Jack Sparrow outfit fighting off hordes of zombified pterodactyls as they swoop down from the sky! Okay, as much as we’d love to see that happen, unfortunately movie producers have not picked up on the idea. Instead, you can see all the action in different movies like Pirates of the Caribbean 5, World War Z 2, and Jurassic Park 4.
Let’s start with the sword-wielding pirates! Disney has postponed the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales from July 10, 2015 until sometime in summer 2016, because the script is not whipped into shape just yet. “Like audiences around the globe, we have high expectations for Jack Sparrow’s next adventure and we want to have all the right elements in place,” said Disney production president Sean Bailey. “We’re not there yet and we want to make sure this project is everything these wonderful characters and of course the fans deserve.”
Now, how about the highly anticipated sequel to World War Z? You know… that movie where Brad Pitt saved the world from a fatal zombie attack? Well, Pitt recently told the website Variety that he and producers are certainly considering making a part 2. “We gotta get the script right first to determine if we go further,” he said before adding, “We have so many ideas and so much information — we think we have a lot of stuff to mine from.” World War Z, which was based on the 2006 novel by Max Brooks, is Pitt’s most successful movie to date, raking in $533 million in the worldwide box office.
So, if it were up to me, I’d demand a new Jurassic Park movie every year! You can never get enough of dinosaurs, right? Well, that’s exactly what director Colin Trevorrow thought too. Universal Pictures announced this Tuesday that they’re releasing Jurassic Park 4, which is now named Jurassic World, on June 12 of 2015. The first three films in the series have made a total of $1.9 billion (woah!), while the re-release of the original film Jurassic Park brought in $114 million globally. That’s a lot of dough for a bunch of reptiles, but hey, if it means we get to see more dinosaurs then keep them coming.
Note to any producers out there reading this: if you’d like to make my Pirate vs Zombie Dinosaurs into a movie… please do. We’ll discuss the payment options after we cast Johnny Depp and Zac Efron.
