    By Carnotaur3





    DAWN OF EXTINCTION: JURASSIC PARK







    WRITTEN BY JEFF LONG
    AND CHASE KUERTZ



    STORY BY CHASE KUERTZ




    OPEN ON:

    DARKNESS.

    FADE TO:

    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.

    CUT TO:




    1 EXT. COSTA RICA – NIGHT 1

    The sky is dark but clear.

    PAN DOWN

    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.

    SUBTITLE

    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?


    CUT TO:




    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.

    CUT TO:



    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.

    ROBERTO CARTER
    (SCREAMING)

    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.

    CUT OUT.


    3 INT. LEVINE’S APARTMENT – DAY 3


    A NEWS REPORTER is sitting at her desk, a pile of
    papers in front of her.

    SUBTITLE
    NEW JERSEY, 2004

    REPORTER
    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.

    PAN OUT:

    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.

    FLASHBACK:

    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.

    LEVINE
    You’re him, right?

    MALCOLM
    Excuse me?

    LEVINE
    (SHRUGGING)
    The scientist…The guy…I saw you on TV.

    IAN MALCOLM simply turns his head away, ignoring him.

    LEVINE (cont’d)
    I believed you…

    MALCOLM just shakes his head.

    LEVINE (cont’d)
    (CLASPING HIS HANDS TOGETHER)
    Rawwwwr.

    END FLASHBACK.

    LEVINE sits up as the REPORTER continues.

    REPORTER
    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.

    LEVINE
    (Whispering)
    I knew it!

    CUT TO:


    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.

    STUDENT
    So…Dr. Malcolm…what do you think of
    it?

    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.

    MALCOLM
    It’s shit… There’s no menace.

    STUDENT
    No menace?

    MALCOLM
    Uh, they never stand like this,
    flatfooted on two feet. Give him a
    book.

    (GRABS STUDENT’S BOOK)

    …And he might be singing a Christmas
    carol.

    STUDENT
    Gee, I didn’t think it was that bad.

    MALCOLM
    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
    toy.

    He walks off, still shaking his head. The STUDENT seems
    Hurt, but MALCOLM’S just annoyed.

    MALCOLM walks to the entrance of his office.

    CUT TO:



    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
    answer.

    MALCOLM (V.O.)
    Ian Malcolm’s office.

    LEVINE
    Ian, it’s me, Richard.

    MALCOLM (V.O.)
    Richard? Oh, Richard! I haven’t
    talked to you in a few years. Are you
    still looking for your ‘lost world’?

    LEVINE
    Ian, I’ve found it. Meet me at Olive
    Garden at 2:00.

    MALCOLM
    Uh, Richard, I’m kind of busy with a
    new book and…

    LEVINE
    Catching up isn’t long to do, Ian.
    Besides, I have strong evidence. Have
    you not listened to CNN lately?

    MALCOLM
    Politicians…got to hate them.

    LEVINE
    Please meet me, Ian.

    Silence is over the phone. We see LEVINE waiting
    impatiently for MALCOLM’S answer.

    MALCOLM
    Ok, Richard, you’ve got yourself a
    date.


    CUT TO:


    6 INT. RESTAURANT – DAY 6

    PAN UP:


    From the briefcase next to LEVINE’S seat to MALCOLM and
    LEVINE, they just now ordered their meal and are
    putting their menus up.

    MALCOLM
    You expect me to believe you,
    Richard?

    LEVINE sits there, he doesn’t know what to say.

    MALCOLM (cont’d)
    I mean, from the moment I first met
    you you told me I was a goofball.
    Sure, I had no physical evidence, but…

    LEVINE
    I understand how you feel, Ian. But,
    unlike you did, I have substantial
    evidence in hand.

    MALCOLM nods.

    LEVINE (cont’d)
    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.

    MALCOLM
    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?

    LEVINE
    Costa Rica, Ian, Costa Rica!

    MALCOLM
    You can’t be serious?

    LEVINE
    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.

    MALCOLM
    And? What happened to it?

    LEVINE
    The remains were burned.

    MALCOLM
    So nothing was left?

    LEVINE
    That’s right. No photographs, no
    proof.

    MALCOLM
    So it could have been made up.

    LEVINE
    Perhaps, but I think it’s worth
    mounting an expedition, to find out
    about these reported survivals.

    MALCOLM grunts and eases in his seat.

    MALCOLM
    No offence, Richard, but a story
    means nothing. The evidence your
    withholding could be misleading.

    LEVINE
    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.

    MALCOLM
    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.

    LEVINE
    Nice offer…but I’m rich you know.
    I can pay myself. Would you go if I
    set up a team?

    MALCOLM
    No probably not.

    LEVINE
    I see.

    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.

    MALCOLM
    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.

    THORNE
    Freddy, you still working on the
    painting for that cycle?

    FREDDY, a worker of his, looks up from behind the motorcycle.

    FREDDY
    Yeah, what you need?

    THORNE
    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
    and smiles.

    THORNE (cont’d)
    How’s my little bro doing?


    ARBY
    Better than you, I hope.

    THORNE
    Just because you don’t have to work
    yet, doesn’t mean you should take
    advantage of me, Arb.

    ARBY
    Well…

    (BEAT)

    I did.

    LEVINE enters from the large garage door that was now
    open.

    LEVINE

    (YELLS)

    Thorne, how long we got on these things?


    THORNE turns around.

    THORNE
    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
    test.

    LEVINE shows a face that’s confusing. It looks as
    though he’s disappointed. But he shrugs it off
    immediately.

    LEVINE
    Alright, that’ll do.

    And with that, LEVINE was out the door. THORNE didn’t
    think nothing of it. He turned to ARBY.

    THORNE
    Well, kido, let’s set you up in my
    apartment.
