DAWN OF EXTINCTION: JURASSIC PARK
WRITTEN BY JEFF LONG
AND CHASE KUERTZ
STORY BY CHASE KUERTZ
A puddle of water lay still in a muddy jungle. We can
here the crickets chirp, as well as other animals.
Then, they start to fade away until only the crickets
are left chirping. Then, immediately the crickets stop
and the puddle becomes active after a loud thump makes
rings in the puddle.
1 EXT. COSTA RICA – NIGHT 1
The sky is dark but clear.
To see the top of trees belonging to a jungle. This is
the edge of the jungle though and beside it is a grassy
field and a small one-story house.
HEREDIA, COSTA RICA
Outside, all is quiet as a slight breeze picks up.
Suddenly the ferns lightly rustle and a soft snarl can
be heard. But is this only tricks of the wind?
2 INT. HOUSE – DARK 2
Inside the house. All is dark, the occupants long asleep.
In one bedroom, a man and woman sleep soundlessly.
Suddenly, we are so aware of the quietness that we can
only notice the sounds that are not supposed to be there.
Still inside the house, but looking at the main door.
Suddenly the doorknob starts to rattle and slowly turn.
CUT BACK TO:
Man and Woman sleeping. The sound of the door creaking
open is heard, but they still sleep. Something can be
heard walking across the floor. Suddenly the footsteps
stop and a clicking is heard.
We then hear a sniffing sound and the footsteps start
up again as a shadow quickly passes by the doorway,
illuminated by the moonlight. It was a quick shadow,
But from what we see, it looked like it belonged to a VELOCIRAPTOR. We then hear a baby crying and both
parents snap their eyes wide open,
hearing the baby. They jump out of bed and rush out
into the hall and to the baby room, turning on the
light once they enter. They rush over to the crib, only
finding it empty, the sheets ripped up and blood
smeared on them. The father, ROBERTO CARTER, notices
the window was broken.
Julia, stay here!
ROBERTO turns and rushes out of the room, hearing his
wife crying back at the crib. He runs to the door,
finding it wide open and runs outside, barefooted and
no shirt on. He looks around, seeing nothing, but
hearing the baby crying. He runs to the back of the
house, where the sound is coming from, just in time to
see the ferocious beast turn and snarl at him. We can’t
exactly see what it truly is because it’s dark, only
guess. The dark creature’s foot rears back and slices
ROBERTO’S chest open. Blood spurts out onto the grass
as he cries in pain and agony. He SCREAMS.
3 INT. LEVINE’S APARTMENT – DAY 3
A NEWS REPORTER is sitting at her desk, a pile of
papers in front of her.
NEW JERSEY, 2004
This is the eighth reported ‘child
napping’ in rural locations close to
or surrounding the Costa Rican
jungles in the last month. Not to
mention, the reports all involve a
large or small creature entering the
house. Authorities are looking into
this as well as big name scientists
and zoologists. Roberto Carter, a local
resident and father of the two
month-year-old infant is unable for
interview because of his injuries.
To show that this is a news program on someone’s TV.
The apartment is only a small one-bedroom apartment
with a couple of extra rooms for whatever. (Including
a kitchen and bathroom.) clothes is all over the place,
posters are only half-hanging on the wall, the other
half drooping over. There is a map of COSTA RICA on the
wall, pins are marking certain locations on it. In the
kitchen, pots, pans, and dirty dishes fill the sinks
and counters. In the bedroom, the bed is unmade and
books and papers are all over the place, though a desk
by the wall is perfectly clean except for three neatly
stacked books by the side and a lamp at the top. Back
in the living room, a person in his late 30’s,
DR. RICHARD LEVINE, lay on his couch watching the News
report. He has short black hair and is kind of muscular.
Right now he’s focusing on his eye lids and the
report at the same time.
LEVINE is sitting on a subway train, looking around,
when suddenly a man dressed in black walks on and sits
in a seat close to him. LEVINE begins to snap his
fingers. We can see that he has recognised this man.
It’s no other than IAN MALCOLM. LEVINE walks close by
him and then sits in a seat in front. MALCOLM just
reads at the paper he has just picked up.
You’re him, right?
The scientist…The guy…I saw you on TV.
IAN MALCOLM simply turns his head away, ignoring him.
I believed you…
MALCOLM just shakes his head.
(CLASPING HIS HANDS TOGETHER)
LEVINE sits up as the REPORTER continues.
For more information on this, please
visit our website at www.cnn-news.com.
You can also send in any information
to us about these creatures. I’m Judie
Watson of CNN news.
The address appears on the bottom of the screen. LEVINE
smiles and heads on over to the computer, typing in the
address almost immediately. The excitement is
overwhelming him, this we can see. Suddenly, the main
page comes up. He clicks on the news heading and he
finds the many pictures of footprints.
I knew it!
4 INT. COLLEGE HALLWAY – DAY 4
The VELOCIRAPTOR’S jaws hang open just a tad, it’s eyes
piercing the two humans in front of him, and a roar
comes from the inside of his mouth. Some how though,
IAN MALCOLM isn’t impressed. The STUDENT beside him
moves over to him.
So…Dr. Malcolm…what do you think of
MALCOLM is dressed in black leather from head to toe.
He shakes his head back in forth. We see that he’s
apparently disgusted by it.
It’s shit… There’s no menace.
Uh, they never stand like this,
flatfooted on two feet. Give him a
(GRABS STUDENT’S BOOK)
…And he might be singing a Christmas
Gee, I didn’t think it was that bad.
Uh, bad? This is an insult to a great
predator. Give a great predator his
due. Uh, look at the jaw, it’s
supposed to be wide open. Open it’s
jaws. Uh, take that foot down there
and rear it up in attack mode. And
take out that silly roar, this thing
needs to be ferocious, not a child’s
He walks off, still shaking his head. The STUDENT seems
Hurt, but MALCOLM’S just annoyed.
MALCOLM walks to the entrance of his office.
5 INT. LEVINE’S OFFICE – DAY 5
Holding his cordless phone in his hands, LEVINE dials
MALCOLM’S number. He nods his head, waiting for an
Ian Malcolm’s office.
Ian, it’s me, Richard.
Richard? Oh, Richard! I haven’t
talked to you in a few years. Are you
still looking for your ‘lost world’?
Ian, I’ve found it. Meet me at Olive
Garden at 2:00.
Uh, Richard, I’m kind of busy with a
new book and…
Catching up isn’t long to do, Ian.
Besides, I have strong evidence. Have
you not listened to CNN lately?
Politicians…got to hate them.
Please meet me, Ian.
Silence is over the phone. We see LEVINE waiting
impatiently for MALCOLM’S answer.
Ok, Richard, you’ve got yourself a
6 INT. RESTAURANT – DAY 6
From the briefcase next to LEVINE’S seat to MALCOLM and
LEVINE, they just now ordered their meal and are
putting their menus up.
You expect me to believe you,
LEVINE sits there, he doesn’t know what to say.
I mean, from the moment I first met
you you told me I was a goofball.
Sure, I had no physical evidence, but…
I understand how you feel, Ian. But,
unlike you did, I have substantial
evidence in hand.
Alright, look at these pictures.
(Hands Malcolm papers)
What you see is what you get… Those
are footprints, Ian. Footprints of
the very things that used to walk the
earth 65 million years ago.
Sizes of them vary from two inches in
length to five feet in length.
MALCOLM stares blankly at the photos.
I’m sure you have more stuff…
Remember back in 1998, when we looked
forever to find a location. We got to
the point of South America. Went up
there…didn’t find anything. Where
else is there to go?
Costa Rica, Ian, Costa Rica!
You can’t be serious?
Sure am. I keep getting calls about
these animals appearing. The last
call I had was nine months ago.
Unfortunately, I was in Siberia
looking at a frozen mammoth, and I
couldn’t get back in time. But I’m
told it was some kind of very large,
atypical lizard, found dead in the
jungle of Costa Rica.
And? What happened to it?
The remains were burned.
So nothing was left?
That’s right. No photographs, no
So it could have been made up.
Perhaps, but I think it’s worth
mounting an expedition, to find out
about these reported survivals.
MALCOLM grunts and eases in his seat.
No offence, Richard, but a story
means nothing. The evidence your
withholding could be misleading.
And wonder if it’s not. It’s the
chance of a life time, Ian. A chance
to see real breathing creatures that
were always a mystery to us.
I’ve had my share of them… More than
I can chew.
(Takes a sip of coke)
Listen, I’ll fund your expedition
there, but I still think it’s pure
fantasy. But I’ll do anything to see
you get proven wrong! In the mean
time, find more convincing evidence.
Nice offer…but I’m rich you know.
I can pay myself. Would you go if I
set up a team?
No probably not.
MALCOLM takes a glance at LEVINE. He notices that his
eyes look to blank. He sees that he’s got dark circles
around them as well.
Richard, go talk to Thorne about it,
and get some sleep, you look terrible.
7 INT. THORNE’S WORKSHOP – DAY 7
JACK THORNE walked around looking at the development of
his two new vehicles and motorcycle. We can here them
doing a lot of drilling. THORNE is a bulky man in his
middle 20’s, he has on a blue T-shirt with dirty blue
jeans. There are a couple of tears in them, but he
doesn’t seem to care about it.
Freddy, you still working on the
painting for that cycle?
FREDDY, a worker of his, looks up from behind the motorcycle.
Yeah, what you need?
You’ll see, just finish the second
coat and meet me in my office.
ARBY, THORNE’S 15-year-old brother, runs to him, throwing
his sleeping bag at him. THORNE catches it in mid-air
How’s my little bro doing?
Better than you, I hope.
Just because you don’t have to work
yet, doesn’t mean you should take
advantage of me, Arb.
LEVINE enters from the large garage door that was now
Thorne, how long we got on these things?
THORNE turns around.
I’d say about three weeks tops. I
have to get the rest of the vehicles
built, paint job done, the air pumped
in the tires, and definitely a field
LEVINE shows a face that’s confusing. It looks as
though he’s disappointed. But he shrugs it off
Alright, that’ll do.
And with that, LEVINE was out the door. THORNE didn’t
think nothing of it. He turned to ARBY.
Well, kido, let’s set you up in my
