news.avclub.com has posted a resurfaced interview James Cameron gave The Huffington Post in which he shared he also wanted to make a Jurassic Park movie, but Steven Spielberg beat him to the rights. James Cameron explained that his version of Jurassic Park would have been “much nastier” than Spielberg’s film. He also compared his take to what he did with Aliens by calling it, “Aliens with dinosaurs.” James Cameron is a brilliant filmmaker and his Jurassic Park would have definitely been interesting and probably much darker than Spielberg’s. It does excite me to think about Jurassic Park made like Aliens—but Jurassic Park is one of my favorite Spielberg films and I am more than happy with his take on the franchise.
