JURASSIC PARK IV

by

David J. Darabont

Based on Michael Crichton's


"Jurassic Park"

December 2007 Draft


EXT. ISLA NUBLAR - DAY

A downpour of rain...

A military caravan is trekking through the thick foliage of


the island, when they encounter a T-Rex. It looks at the team
of soldiers and twists its head like a curious bird.

EDDIE, the man in the clean black suit, steps out of the lead
truck with a high powered rifle. He looks through the scope
and aims carefully at the T-Rex’s eye.

EDDIE
You’re a big clumsy creature,
that’s why you became extinct. You
were wiped out by a meteor for good
reason. Now you will be wiped out
by me. You’re the last one, buddy.

Eddie pulls the trigger on his rifle. Nothing happens. He


pulls it again. Nothing happens. The T-rex charges toward the
caravan.

EDDIE
(pounding on rifle)
C’mon you piece of crap!

The T-rex slams into the lead truck, which crashes into the
vehicle directly behind, causing a domino effect. As Eddie
fiddles with his rifle, the T-rex goes around picking off
soldiers.

INT. TROOP TRUCK - DAY

It forces its head through the side of a troop truck. The


soldiers scurry back and huddle together. SOLDIER #1 nudges
SOLDIER #2.

SOLDIER #1
Shoot that goddamn thing!

SOLDIER #2
I’m outta ammunition!

The T-rex roars as its head presses against the canvas


ceiling.

EXT. ISLA NUBLAR - DAY

The T-rex backs up from the troop truck, its mouth stained
with blood. It swings back toward, Eddie. Eddie aims his
rifle again and pulls the trigger.
2.

A large feathered dart shoots the T-rex in the neck. It falls


down and splashes in the mud.

Eddie walks over to the T-rex. He pulls out the dart and
smirks.

EDDIE
Too bad you didn’t evolve for an
immunity against poison.

Eddie throws the dart behind his shoulder. It lands in a


puddle of water, which make concentric circles, as the island
reverberates from the clapping thunder.

DISSOLVE TO:

EXT. UNIVERSAL LOGO - DAY

A globe spins against a black background, encapsulated by


large letters which read, UNIVERSAL.

EXT. USC - DAY - ESTABLISHING

The University of Southern California. Lots of students.

INT. LECTURE HALL - DAY

The lecture is seen behind a tall thin man with brown hair,
facing out toward a huge crowd of students.

GRANT
(back facing)
Yes, most scientists believe that
the dinosaurs went extinct because
of a meteorite. But what most
people don’t know it was in fact
double impact...

A spirited looking boy raises his hand for a question.

GRANT
Questions will be answered after
the presentation.

MAX interrupts anyway.

MAX
Your meteorites are a fantasy! The
reason the dinos went extinct is
because of gradual climactic
change.
(MORE)
3.
MAX (CONT'D)
The disappearance of key plant
species and an inability to adapt
to colder weather is what really
did them in.

The camera turns to reveal Grant’s calm but irritated face.

GRANT
Would you please come up on stage
for a minute?

Max looks at the others, unsure.

GRANT
I’d like to show you something.

He reluctantly stands up and goes on the stage.

GRANT
(gestures)
Step here for a minute.

Max walks out, dead center for everyone to see. Grant leaves
for a minute and returns with a beach ball painted in the
likeness of a meteor.

GRANT
Now imagine for a second you are a
dinosaur. I know it’s difficult.
Just try.

Max is tense, motionless as Grant circles around him.

GRANT
Okay, here I have a meteor. You are
dinosaur, a little, little
dinosaur. I throw this meteor at
your head.

Grant throws the ball at Max, the crowd laughs as it bounces


off his head.

GRANT
Twice.

Grant picks up the ball and throws it again.

GRANT
So you’re alive, you’re still
standing, you’re still on stage.
Nothing has happened.

Grant takes out a tiny meteorite from his pocket and shows it
to the crowd.
4.

GRANT
(showing meteor)
But what if the meteor was made out
of a dense material, like this?

Grant throws the meteor at Max’s head. Max flinches.

GRANT
Hurts? Okay. Now take that little
pebble of a meteor and increase the
size by a million... Then multiply
the speed by a hundred... Do you
think you’d be dead?

Max concedes with shoulders slumped forward and an


embarrassed face. Grant pats Max on the shoulder.

GRANT
Go have a seat, son.

INT. BACKSTAGE - DAY

As the students leave, Grant tramps down a small set of


stairs. A lady in shadow appears in front.

GRANT
Sorry, I’m not signing any books
today.

ELLIE
(in shadow)
No?

GRANT
Unfortunately.

Grant walks forward. ELLIE comes out from the shadow. She is
absolutely stunning, more gorgeous than ever. Age has only
made her more attractive. The fine lines on her face draw
toward her pouty lips.

GRANT
Ellie?

ELLIE
I really enjoyed the lecture, Alan.
But you were a little rough around
the edges -- as usual.

GRANT
He’s a tough kid. He can take it.
5.

INT. CAFETARIA - DAY

Grant and Ellie are in line, waiting to buy food.

ELLIE
It’s a shame we can’t see more of
each other. I guess we’re all busy.

GRANT
When did we last meet? 2001, I
think... So why are you here?

ELLIE
Working on a little project for the
university.

GRANT
What’s it about?

The line moves forward. The lunch lady looks at Grant.

ELLIE
(teasing)
It’s a secret.

GRANT
(to lunch lady)
I’ll have a bagel with cream
cheese.
(to Ellie)
Oh come now. You can tell an old
friend, can’t you?

ELLIE
(to lunch lady)
A salad and water, please.
(to Grant)
Okay, I’ll explain it when we sit
down.

Ellie and Grant take their meals and sit down at an empty
table.

ELLIE
Do your remember, Jurassic Park?

GRANT
Don’t remind me... Wait, don’t tell
me...
6.

ELLIE
After InGen went bankrupt they
auctioned off their assets.

GRANT
What are you saying?

ELLIE
The university purchased some of
the technology Hammond invented.
They’re using it to replicate
velociraptor blood... They believe
it can fight disease, as a sort of
super antibiotic.

GRANT
Are you sure they aren’t using it
for something else?

ELLIE
It’s legitimate.

GRANT
Since when did you start getting
into medicine?

Ellie rests her face on her hands and smiles.

ELLIE
Wow. It really has been a long time
hasn’t it?

EXT. INGEN OFFICE - DAY - ESTABLISHING

The ghost of glory’s past. A quiet grey stone building sits


outside while the wind gently blows trash down the sidewalk.

INT. INGEN OFFICE - DAY

In a large empty room, a big black chair sits in the middle,


its back facing out. It spins around. HAMMOND sighs and
twirls a cane with an amber stone on top. He gets up and
ambles outside through the double doors.

INT. CIRCULAR ROOM - DAY

Hammond enters a circular room, the center of the former


InGen Office. He watches as repo men carry away his past in
cheap cardboard boxes.
7.

HAMMOND
(to man trying to pry away
a fiberglass dino)
Be careful with that!

The repo man ignore him and tears away the bolted fiberglass
dino, leaving only its feet. Hammond looks crestfallen. He
sits down on the floor. A long shadow appears over him.

Hammond lifts his head. His grown-up grandchildren, TIM and


LEX, lift him off the floor. Tim puts his arm around Hammond.

TIM
Let’s go grampa.

The three quietly exit as a ray of light shines through


skylight, highlighting the sparkling dust hanging in the
musky air.

EXT. VERMONT AVE - DAY

An arm spray paints a white line across the asphalt. Two cars
pull up and we see a crowd of people. In the yellow car,
LOGAN. In the red Cadillac, Max and his girlfriend, SASHA.

LOGAN
You ready for this?

MAX
Those textbooks won’t buy
‘emselves.

Sasha looks at Max.

SASHA
Really, Max. Racing for textbooks?

MAX
It’s a guy thing, Sasha.

Max puts on his glasses.

MAX
If you wanna leave, you can.

Sasha buckles up her seat belt. A SCRAWNY kid raises a pistol


in the air.

SCRAWNY
(deep voice)
On your marks...
8.

The cars rev their engines.

SCRAWNY
Get set...

Max squeezes the wheel of his car.

SCRAWNY
Ready...

Logan hangs a pair of dice on his mirror.

SCRAWNY
Go!

Max and Logan step on the gas. Logan’s car zooms off. Max’s
car just sputters.

MAX
Aw! Not now!

Max hops out his car.

MAX
Pop the hood, Sasha!

Sasha pops the hood. Max takes out a multi-tool from his
pocket and fiddles around inside. He slams the hood down and
jumps back inside the car.

MAX
Let’s go!

Max presses on the gas. The car takes off at lightning speed.
It catches up to Logan’s yellow car. Logan looks out,
surprised.

LOGAN
Holy shit!

Sasha waves goodbye to Logan as the Cadillac zooms ahead and


goes past the finish line.

EXT. SASHA’S HOUSE - NIGHT

Max pulls the Cadillac into the driveway, along with Sasha.
He kisses her on the cheek.

MAX
I’ll see you tomorrow.
9.

Sasha gets of the car. She waves goodbye as Max takes his car
into the driveway next door.

EXT. GRANT’S HOUSE - NIGHT

Max blows Sasha a kiss, then he goes inside of the house.

INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - MAIN FOYER - NIGHT

Max enters the house, his ears pick up on a sound, a light


jazzy music.

INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - DINING - NIGHT

Grant and Ellie tap their wine glasses together and smile at
each other as the swig down the dark purple liquid. Max
enters the room.

MAX
Dad?

GRANT
Ellie, I’d like you to meet my
son... Max.

Ellie reaches across the table and shakes Max’s hand.

MAX
What’s going on here? You’re not
having a romantic dinner are you?

GRANT
Max, don’t be ridiculous. She’s an
old friend.

Max spots the wedding ring on Ellie’s finger.

GRANT
Have a seat, son.

MAX
No, I think I should...

GRANT
Sit down.

Max sits down on Grant’s command.

ELLIE
So, how old are you exactly?
10.

MAX
Old enough to drink.

Ellie raises an eyebrow. She smirks and pours Max a glass a


wine. Grant takes away the wine glass.

GRANT
No. He doesn’t drink.

ELLIE
Oh. My mistake.

MAX
I’m kind of a monk when it comes to
alcohol. I just don’t like the
stuff. For obvious reasons...

ELLIE
What do you mean by that?

Grant looks at Max and shakes his head.

MAX
My mom died in a car accident.

ELLIE
Oh that’s so sad.

MAX
And I think by my previous
statement, you can guess how it
happened.

Ellie looks at her watch. It’s way past midnight.

ELLIE
Oh shoot. I gotta go.

Ellie stands. Grant gets up from his seat.

GRANT
So soon?

ELLIE
I have to be at the lab six hours.

GRANT
Well, let me see you to the door.

Max continues sitting as Grant shows Ellie to the door. He


smells the wine, makes a disgusted face.
11.

INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - MAX’S ROOM - DAY

Morning has come. The alarm clock on Max;s night stand goes
off. Max searches with his arm, trying to find the snooze
button. But he reaches too far out and accidentally tumbles
to the floor.

Thud!

GRANT (OS)
Everything alright up there?

MAX
Yeah. I’m just exercising!

Max gets up and rubs his head.

INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - KITCHEN - DAY

Max runs into the kitchen and grabs his knapsack. Grant is
already awake, making breakfast -- orange juice, burnt toast
and tofu sausages.

As Max is about to leave...

GRANT
Breakfast is ready!

Max reluctantly takes a seat. Grant puts the food onto a


plate and serves the unappetizing melange. Max picks up the
blackened toast. It snaps in half.

GRANT
Eat up.

MAX
I’m not really that hungry.

GRANT
A growing boy needs to eat.

MAX
(to self)
Eat what, that’s the question.

GRANT
What was that?

MAX
I have a stomach ache.
12.

Max gets up.

MAX
I’ll eat the breakfast when I come
home!

Max runs out the kitchen.

EXT. GRANT’S HOUSE - BACKYARD - DAY

Grant puts on his famous hat and walks into the backyard. He
hears the sound of a child playing through the fence. He
walks over to look.

There is a toddler playing with disfigured G.I. Joes in a


sandbox.

GRANT
Whatcha got there, Jeff?

JEFF looks up.

JEFF
GI Joe!

Grant reaches into his back pocket and takes out a toy
dinosaur, a triceratops.

JEFF
What’s that?

GRANT
A triceratops.

JEFF
Twy-sawah-tops?

GRANT
Would you like to play with it?

Jeff waddles over to Grant and lifts his head. Grant reaches
over and hands him the toy. Jeff looks at the toy. He runs
back to his sandbox and uses it to fight with the GI Joes.

Grant lifts his hat and smiles.

EXT. BEACH - DAY

Max and Sasha are at the beach, relaxing under a big


umbrella. Max is reading a book, “The City and the Stars”.
13.

MAX
I love the weekend.

Sasha lifts her sunglasses and sees a crowd gathering by the


shore, staring out.

SASHA
Max!

MAX
What?

SASHA
I think something’s going on.

MAX
Let the coast guard worry about it.

Sasha takes Max’s book. Max looks at the crowd.

MAX
So there’s a bunch of people
staring at the water...

Sasha gets up. Max follows her as she goes to join the crowd.
They push through to the front.

MAX
I don’t see anything.

Sasha points to a little island.

SASHA
Over there.

There is a silhouette of an Apatosaurus, swaying its head


back and forth.

MAX
It couldn’t be...

EXT. LITTLE ISLAND - DAY

A stout man in overalls with the words “NuTech” emblazoned on


the front, is controlling a fake robotic dinosaur with a
radio.

INT. NUTECH BOARD ROOM - DAY

Eddie, the CEO of National United Technology, is standing in


front of his peers in a dark room, lit only by a projector.
14.

On screen is a picture of tourists bunched together,


artificially smiling.

EDDIE
If we make this thing... we can be
bigger than Disney Land... There’s
no stopping us. We have the real
estate. We have the technology --
which we got for dirt cheap -- and
we virtually have no competitors.

The Chief Marketing Officer, the CMO, raises his hand.

EDDIE
Yes?

CMO
When you say ‘virtually no
competitors’, what exactly do you
mean by that?

EDDIE
I mean -- no competitors. Not even
the old, Jurassic Park. The U.S.
Military and I got rid of that
problem. It was a real hazard.

CMO
Even with what we have now, I still
think it’s too dangerous.

EDDIE
It’s been more than a decade and a
half since the original park
opened. Technology has advance
significantly. It would be nothing
but safe.

The CHAIRMAN rubs his chin with skepticism.

CHAIRMAN
I realize we have this technology,
Edward, but it doesn’t mean we have
to use it.

EDDIE
Did you not watch the video I
showed you. Did you see how the
people at the beach reacted? It
wasn’t even a real dinosaur...
Imagine what they would pay to see
a real one.
15.

INT. LARRY KING LIVE - NIGHT

Grant looks at LARRY King across the table. There’s a twinkle


in his eye.

LARRY
You are the dinosaur man.

GRANT
Some people call me that.

LARRY
Even after the horrific tragedy on
Jurassic Park, you still maintain
an interest in dinosaurs. Why is
that?

GRANT
I’ve grew up with dinosaurs all my
life, both in the dirt and above it
-- and I believe they’re creatures
that need our respect. My reverence
for them, what they’ve done to my
life, will never die down. Just
because you’ve loved and lost, does
not mean you can love again.

LARRY
And let’s talk about your book for
a moment...

Larry King lifts a book and shows it to the camera, “Dances


with Dinosaurs”.

LARRY
Why the strange title? Dances with
Dinosaurs.

GRANT
A dinosaur is an agile creature.
When you go face to face with one
it’s like a dance. Except if you
screw up you won’t get dumped,
you’ll get eaten.

LARRY
That actually make sense.

Grant and Larry snicker together.


16.

INT. HOTEL ROOM - NIGHT

Ellie turns off the television. She takes off her glasses and
puts them on the night stand behind. She turns off the lights
and spreads out her limbs.

There is a knock at the door. Ellie turns on the light. She


puts on a robe and goes to answer it. When she opens the door
there are two police officers standing in front of her.

OFFICER #1 folds his arms.

OFFICER #1
Are you Miss Sattler?

ELLIE
Dr. Ellie Sattler, yes.

OFFICER #2 speaks up.

OFFICER #2
Sorry to bother you so late in the
night, but we need to ask you some
questions.

ELLIE
What about?

OFFICER #2
We believe your laboratory has been
broken into.

ELLIE
You’re kidding me. What did they
take?

OFFICER #1
Microscopes, lab equipment... that
sort of thing.

OFFICER #2
At first we thought they were
taking something of more value, but
it turns they just might be
hoodlums -- trying to make a couple
extra bucks.

ELLIE
So what can I do?
17.

OFFICER #1
Come down with us to the lab. Let
us investigate the crime scene.
That sort of thing.

ELLIE
Why are you coming to me? Shouldn’t
you speak with the University?

OFFICER #1
Are you not the lead scientist of
the project?

ELLIE
Okay. I just need to put something
more appropriate.

OFFICER #1
Take your time.

Ellie closes the door.

INT. LABORATORY - NIGHT

Ellie does a retinal eye scan and enters the lab with the two
police officers. They use their flashlights to light the way.
The three of them walk together and look around.

ELLIE
It doesn’t appear as if the place
has been broken into.

OFFICER #1
I’m gonna go check ‘round back.
Officer Smith is gonna ask you some
questions.

ELLIE
Okay.

As Officer #2 questions Ellie, Officer #1 goes to the back.

CUT TO:

He finds a computer in the corner. He turns on the monitor,


where there is a password screen.

Officer #1 sticks a USB key into the tower case and uploads a
program. The program unlocks the computer and gives him
access to a menu.
18.

CUT TO:

Meanwhile, Ellie is still talking to Officer #2 as he jots


down notes.

ELLIE
I really don’t know.

OFFICER #2
So you don’t remember the last
people who visited this laboratory?

ELLIE
A lot of workers come in and out.
It’s hard to keep track. But
generally without authorization,
nobody can get in.

CUT TO:

Back with Officer #1. He is typing away on the keyboard in an


encrypted language. After punching enter, a message come up,
“Access Granted”.

A cylindrical tube pops up on the adjacent counter as cold


white smoke billows onto the ground.

CUT TO:

Officer #1 joins Officer #2 as he flips his note pad close.

OFFICER #2
Okay Dr. Ellie. Thank you for your
time. We’ll let you know if
anything crops up... Are you
alright to drive back alone to your
hotel?

ELLIE
I should be fine... It’s a bad
area, but I’m only there for a bit
‘till I find an apartment.

OFFICER #1
Well you know who to call if
there’s trouble.

Officer #1 and Officer #2 leave. Ellie looks back, as if she


feels something suspicious has just occurred.
19.

INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - DAY

Max is on the couch watching TV when a newscast comes on.

INT. NEWSCAST - LABORATORY - DAY

The JOURNALIST holds a microphone close to her mouth.

JOURNALIST
I’m Marie Ching, here at the
University of Southern California.
I am in the laboratory, where a
robbery has recently taken place.

INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM

Max shouts to Grant as he watches.

MAX
Dad my school’s on TV!

GRANT (O.S.)
I’m busy!

INT. NEWSCAST - LABORATORY - DAY

The newscast continues.

JOURNALIST
Nothing it appears, at first
glance, is missing. But if we go to
the back of the lab we can clearly
see a crime has taken place.

The cameraman follows the journalist as she goes back where


there is the protruding cylindrical tube -- empty.

JOURNALIST
(hand points to container)
Here you can see an empty
cylindrical container. This is
where the item in question, has
been stolen. Several tubes of
dinosaur DNA... Police are not sure
how it was stolen, as there is no
evidence of a forced break in...

The Journalist brushes back her hair.


20.

JOURNALIST
But say they are working on it.
Although it does not seem to be a
top priority for them, as there are
‘more important’ issues to deal
with.

INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - DAY

The phone suddenly rings. Max mutes the television. He picks


it up.

MAX
(on phone)
Hello? Oh hey, Sasha. Yeah. I’m not
really doing anything right now.
Okay. I’ll met you there. Bye.

Max hangs up the phone.

EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY

Protesters march around the construction site, holding anti-


Jurassic Park placards.

As they shout their slogans and scream, Max drives up with


his convertible. He spots his Sasha waving her fist in the
air.

SASHA
Jurassic Park is dangerous! We
don’t your Jurassic Park!

The Construction workers try to get back to work, but they


are violently pushed back by the protesters.

INT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - CRANE - DAY

On top of a crane, Eddie is looking down at the protesters.

EDDIE
Damn hippies.

EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY

Max gets out of his car. He pushes through the crowd and taps
Sasha on the shoulder.
21.

MAX
Sasha!

Sasha turns around.

SASHA
Max! You came!

Sasha gives Max a placard.

SASHA
Hold this!

Max puts the sign down.

MAX
I didn’t know you wanted to meet me
for a protest... I have other
things to do.

SASHA
Like what?!

MAX
Actually, I’m not against Jurassic
Park.

SASHA
What?

MAX
I’m not against Jurassic Park.

SASHA
What?

MAX
I LOVE JURASSIC PARK!

Sasha and the others turn and stare at Max.

MAX
Uh...

They turn back and continue protesting. Sasha bring Max out
of the crowd and takes him aside to talk.

SASHA
What do you mean you love, Jurassic
Park?
22.

MAX
I’m just not against... I want to
see the dinosaurs.

SASHA
Are you crazy?! They’re building it
in the city.
(points to ground)
Here!

MAX
So what’s the problem?

SASHA
What’s the problem? Do you remember
what happened to your dad? Do you
know how dangerous these things
are?

MAX
My dad’s alive. Even if he was
dead... that doesn’t mean they
should ban an amusement park.

SASHA
This isn’t an amusement park. It’s
a bunch of businessmen playing,
God. And you know what happens when
people play, God.

MAX
No, I don’t Sasha. Why don’t you
tell me?

SASHA
Bad stuff! Bad stuff happens!

MAX
I’m not against Jurassic Park. You
can’t force me to take on your
beliefs -- against science.

SASHA
Don’t put words in my mouth.

MAX
Well -- don’t put values in my
brain!

SASHA
Are you going to protest or not?
23.

MAX
No.

SASHA
Fine! Fine! We’re not going out
anymore!

MAX
You’re breaking up with me because
I won’t protest?! That’s
ridiculous... Fine! Fine! I’m out
of here.

Max storms off and jumps into his Cadillac.

SASHA
Good riddance!

The wheels of Max’s car kicks up dust as it leaves the


construction site.

Eddie appears on the horizon. He walks confidently and


approaches the crowd. He steps on top of a box to address the
people.

EDDIE
Excuse me...

The protesters boo.

EDDIE
I know, I know! You’re angry...
Well I’m angry too.

A BIG DUDE steps out and bellows.

BIG DUDE
What’re you angry about?!

EDDIE
Global warming... Isn’t that why
y’all are protesting? Global
warming. I know, I know. The park
is going to take up a lot of
resources... But we’re using solar
energy to run it! We’re trying to
be as responsible as possible.

Sasha turns to one of the protesters, BIG LADY.

SASHA
Is that what we’re protesting
about?
24.

BIG LADY
Yeah.

SASHA
I thought we were protesting
against them ‘playing God’.

BIG LADY
No! We’re protesting against the
deforestation they’re doin’ to
build the park. It’s gonna
seriously contribute to global
warming.

SASHA
Oh no.

Sasha runs off.

SASHA
Max! I’m coming!

The Big Lady shrugs and turns back to the protest.

BIG LADY
Tree murderer!

INT. PARK - DAY

Grant is walking in the park with Ellie.

ELLIE
What’s it like being a single
parent?

GRANT
It’s not so bad... when I see him.

ELLIE
Aw, that’s how all kids are.

GRANT
Even yours?

ELLIE
(teasing)
No.

GRANT
Oh.
25.

ELLIE
So, did you hear about what
happened?

GRANT
I’ve been busy. Fill me in.

ELLIE
Somebody stole some DNA samples
from the laboratory.

GRANT
(sarcastic)
Is that all?

Grant and Ellie duck under a branch as they walk.

ELLIE
No... It gets worse.

GRANT
What could be worse?

ELLIE
I think I let the robbers in.

GRANT
What was that?

ELLIE
They were dressed as police.

GRANT
Are you in trouble?

ELLIE
No. They dismissed it.

GRANT
All is well then?

ELLIE
Not exactly. The DNA they took is --

A baseball hits Grant in his shin. He jumps up from the pain,


“Oooh! Ow!”

ELLIE
Alan are you okay?

Grant stops jumping. A LITTLE GIRL runs up to him.


26.

LITTLE GIRL
You okay mister?

Grant picks up the baseball and gives it to the Little Girl.

GRANT
I think this belongs to you.

LITTLE GIRL
Real sorry. I’m new at this.

The Little Girl takes the ball and runs off.

ELLIE
Kids, gotta love ‘em.

GRANT
Really...

EXT. TROPICAL RESORT - DAY

Officer #1 and Officer #2, now identified by their real


names, WES and DEAN, have a seat by Eddie, sitting at the
round glass table.

They shake hands.

EDDIE
So nice to see you.

WES
Likewise.

EDDIE
Do you have it?

DEAN
Of course.

Wes hands Eddie a package. Eddie puts it in a briefcase and


hides it under the table.

WES
Being a bit paranoid aren’t we?

EDDIE
You can never be too careful... By
the way, did anyone follow you?

WES
We were like ninjas.
27.

EDDIE
That’s great.

DEAN
...I don’t think it’s possible.

EDDIE
What’s not possible?

DEAN
I understand how they did it with
the other dinos. They extracted the
DNA from mosquitos and recombined
it with their modern ancestors.

EDDIE
Okay...

DEAN
So, there aren’t any mosquitos
underwater.

The WAITRESS arrives.

WAITRESS
Can I take your orders gentlemen?

Eddie takes out a hundred dollar bill and hands it the


waitress.

EDDIE
Beat it toots. The men are having a
discussion.

The Waitress takes the money and leaves.

EDDIE
What were we talking about?

WES
Dinos underwater.

DEAN
What’s the deal?

EDDIE
Right. A good question... I never
thought about it. You’ll have to
ask the scientist.

Eddie takes out a smart phone and connects a call to Ray


ARNOLD. Arnold squints on the LCD screen.
28.

ARNOLD
(waking, night where is)
Mm... Mr. Soros? What’s the matter?

EDDIE
I have a question for you. How do
you get DNA from a creature which
dwells underwater?

ARNOLD
Simple. Chip ‘em out.

EDDIE
Chip ‘em out?

ARNOLD
A lot of sea creatures from the
Jurassic, and even the Cretaceous
period, became frozen in bodies of
water when the climate changed...
thus preserving their genetic code.

EDDIE
Thank you.

ARNOLD
No problem, boss.

Eddie hangs up.

EDDIE
(to Wes and Dean)
Does that answer your question?

EXT. SEA - CRUISESHIP - DAY

John Hammond is lying down on a lounge chair with his hat


over his face. A hand reaches down and removes his hat.
Hammond looks up.

HAMMOND
Excuse me, I was using that to
cover my face from the sun. I’m
sure it was a mistake, if you’d
just --

The CRUISE-LINE WORKER throws that hat, it catches in the


wind and falls off board.

HAMMOND
Oh my.
29.

CRUISE-LINE WORKER
You’re, John Hammond. I know it!
Aren’t you?!

Hammond stands up. He adjusts his shirt.

HAMMOND
I think we have a misunderstanding.
Yes, I am John Hammond... but
likely not the John Hammond you are
looking for.

CRUISE-LINE WORKER
John Hammond of Jurassic Park?

HAMMOND
Okay. I am the John Hammond you’re
looking for... What is it you want
from me?

CRUISE-LINE WORKER
Do you know who Thomas Cory is?

HAMMOND
I haven’t the slightest.

CRUISE-LINE WORKER
Let me refresh your memory.

The Cruise-Line Workers bows forward and starts acting like a


T-Rex.

HAMMOND
Oh my!

The Cruise-Line Worker stands straight and stares Hammond


deep in his eyes.

CRUISE-LINE WORKER
Your little project ‘Jurassic Park’
killed my dad!

HAMMOND
I’m terribly sorry? What is it I
can do for you?

The Cruise-Line Worker grabs Hammond by the shirt.

CRUISE-LINE WORKER
Stop the new Jurassic Park from
opening!
30.

HAMMOND
I can’t! I’m powerless!

CRUISE-LINE WORKER
You’re a filthy rich businessman!
And you can’t stop it from
happening?!

HAMMOND
The lawsuits... I haven’t enough
money.

The Cruise-Line Worker pulls back his fist. Hammond closes


his eyes. He hears a yelp. He looks and sees Tim and Lex
shoving the Cruise-Line Worker into a pool of water.

The Cruise-Line Worker falls in with a giant splash.

LEX
You bastard! Pick on someone your
own age!

Tim goes over to Hammond.

TIM
Gramps, you okay?

Hammond adjusts his glasses.

HAMMOND
Yes. I’m fine.

CRUISE-LINE WORKER
(splashing)
Help! I can’t swim!

Lex rolls her eyes and throws the Cruise-Line Worker a rescue
pole. She drags him in. The Cruise-Line Worker crawls on the
chilly blue tile and coughs out water.

INT. COFFEE SHOP - DAY

Ellie, Grant and Max are in a coffee shop. Max looks


dejected, extremely anxious. His hands are folded, kept close
to his body.

GRANT
What do you think the robber plan
on doing with that DNA?
31.

MAX
(lamenting)
Can we stop talking about stupid
dinosaurs for a minute?!

GRANT
Son, you shouldn’t interrupt the
grown-ups.

MAX
I’m just saying. It’s stupid.
Dinosaurs are big and dumb.

Max sinks down.

GRANT
Oh trust me son. They are not dumb.

Max rolls his eyes.

GRANT
Max. Sit up.

Max groans and sits up.

GRANT
Why did you come here? I thought
you wanted to speak with Dr.
Sattler?

MAX
Well...

GRANT
Now, act like an adult please.

MAX
Okay... Dr. Sattler...

ELLIE
You can call me Ellie.

MAX
Dr. Ellie...

ELLIE
Just Ellie.

MAX
Ms. Ellie...
32.

GRANT
(irate)
Max...

MAX
Dad.

Grant rolls his eyes. He takes a sip of his coffee.

ELLIE
Max, what are you taking at USC?

MAX
The usual. Archaeology.
Anthropology. Genetics. Anything
science. No arts. Yuck.

ELLIE
Ha, ha. Like father, like son.

GRANT
There are subtle similarities.

ELLIE
(to Max)
So you like dinosaurs?

MAX
Yeah. I do. But here’s the thing...
You can only do so much with bones.
And that’s left me a little bored.

ELLIE
Dinosaurs are best left
underground. Trust me on that one.

MAX
I wanna see their teeth, I wanna
see their saliva. Full flesh
creatures, not these computer
simulations and junky stuff like
that... Boy I hope they open that
new Jurassic Park soon.

GRANT ELLIE
What? What?

MAX
Are you two not aware? They’re
creating a new, Jurassic Park.
They’re calling it, the zoo of the
twenty first century.
33.

GRANT
How come I never heard about this?

MAX
What’re you talking about? The news
was everywhere online.

GRANT
I hate computers.

MAX
Well you should’ve known. Why’d you
think they called you to do those
lectures at the University?

GRANT
I thought it was about my book.

MAX
That book is boring.

ELLIE
Where are they building the new,
Jurassic Park?

MAX
I can take you there if you want.

Grant and Ellie stand up. They rush for the door.

GRANT
Come on, Max!

EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY

Ellie, Grant, and Max, get out of the Cadillac. With Grant
leading the way they walk through the construction site;
which is now more substantially built. They go over to a
trailer where Grant knocks on the door.

GRANT
Hello! Is anyone there?

The door slowly opens. Eddie smiles.

EDDIE
The famous Dr. Grant.
(looks at Ellie)
And the famous Dr. Sattler! What a
pleasant surprise!
34.

GRANT
Why are you doing this?

EDDIE
Doing what? Living in a trailer?
Well I like to keep a close eye on
things. Quality and safety is
always my policy.

GRACY
Jurassic Park!

EDDIE
Oh that.

Eddie steps aside.

EDDIE
Let’s speak in my office.

INT. TRAILER - DAY

Grant, Max, and Ellie sit down on the couch. Eddie is in the
kitchen area putting on a pot of water.

EDDIE
Can I offer you anything to drink?
I’m having some tea myself.

GRANT
No, thank you.

Eddie puts a tea bag into a cup and pours hot water onto it.
Then he splashes it with milk and sugar. He sits down with
the others.

EDDIE
Now what questions do you have Dr.
Grant? I know you must have many,
considering your checkered history.

MAX
What the hell does that mean?

GRANT
Relax son.

ELLIE
Mr. Soros. You have all the money
in the world. Why do you want to
open a new park?
35.

EDDIE
I love dinosaurs. What can I say. I
love the past, I love
paleontology... This isn’t a
project just for money you know...
although that’s one of the
incentives.

GRANT
Jurassic Park is not safe.

EDDIE
Wrong Mr. Grant! The OLD Jurassic
Park wasn’t safe. This one is
entirely new. It has state of the
art technology. And I mean state of
the art. Not even the US military
has access to it.

GRANT
Your company is not God.

EDDIE
Close to it.

ELLIE
National United Technology is a
great company, but what you’re
doing is beyond comprehension.
Don’t you understand?

EDDIE
NuTech has sunk nearly half a
billion dollars into this thing...
Do you really think I’m gonna stop
it because of two retired
paleontologists?

GRANT
Whatever it is, we’re just trying
to warn you. Building an amusement
park for dinosaurs in the middle of
suburbia is a really, really, bad
idea.

EDDIE
It’s not an amusement park, Dr.
Grant, it’s a zoo. A Jurassic Zoo.

MAX
(to self)
That’s a catchy name.
36.

GRANT
Well when you do open it, would you
please let us know?

EDDIE
Absolutely! I can even give you
free tickets if you want.

Eddie takes out four tickets and gives them to Grant. Grant
puts them aside on the coffee table.

GRANT
No. We want to know when you’re
opening it up so we can get the
hell out of here.

EDDIE
Oh, is that how it is?

ELLIE
It’s not that we don’t like you Mr.
Soros. It’s just that... Dinosaurs
have a tendency to eat people.

GRANT
Dr. Sattler’s new apartment doesn’t
have security to stave off
velociraptors.

Max bends over to tie his shoelaces. He looks up through the


glass coffee table and with sleight of hand, grabs the four
tickets. He puts them into his pocket.

EDDIE
I know you’re only here temporarily
Dr. Sattler -- but it’ll be
perfectly safe.

MAX
Excuse me.

EDDIE
Yes?

MAX
Is there a washroom in here? I
really have to go.

EDDIE
There’s a port-a-potty outside.

MAX
May I...
37.

GRANT
Hurry up, Max.

Max gets up and leaves the trailer.

EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY

Max goes around the trailer. He walks ahead, through an


assortment of dinosaur paraphernalia. He reaches a bright
aqua port-a-potty.

Max opens the door. His face goes sour as a rancid smell
drifts his way.

MAX
Oh God!

Max slams the door shut. He sees a crew of workers pushing a


large opaque cage on wheels. What’s inside cannot be seen.
However Max’s curiosity is piqued.

When they set it down and leave, Max tiptoes over. He goes up
to the cage and looks through the holes.

MAX
Hello?

He doesn’t see anything -- but something sees him. It looks


back through the inside of the cage.

MAX
Must be empty.

As Max pulls his face back a roar is heard and a claw jumps
out the hole. Max falls back from the surprise.

MAX
Holy crap!

Max stands. He takes a flashlight and shines it inside,


trying to get a better look.

MAX
What are you?

More roars as the cage rumbles with commotion.

MAX
I know what you are.

Max circles around the cage, thinking, listening to the


noises.
38.

MAX
Velociraptor? No, couldn’t be...
Segisaurus? Naw. Struthiomimus? No!
I know, I know this...
Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Max gets closer to the cage.

MAX
A baby.

The baby T-rex makes a shrill cry.

MAX
Looking for mommy, huh?

Max reaches into his back pocket and takes out a pepperoni
stick. He peels off the plastic and sticks it through one of
the holes. The pepperoni stick quickly pulls back. A munching
noise is heard.

MAX
That’s a good boy.

GRANT (OS)
MAX! WHERE ARE YOU?!

MAX
See yah!

Max dashes off, follows the voice of Grant.

EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - NIGHT

Rain has drenched the construction site...

It is now surrounded by a high chain link fence, to keep out


protesters and dissidents -- but it’s quickly dismantled when
a jeep smashes through.

A man in a white suit hops out of the vehicle. He hobbles


through the puddles of water carrying a cane. He makes his
way over to a big gray box rooted in the ground.

HAMMOND
This ought to hamper their little
venture.

Hammond pries it open. There is an LCD screen with a


keyboard. Hammond hacks through the system and types
something we don’t see. Then he closes the box and walks away
with a grin.
39.

EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY

The construction site is more built up than ever. It’s


actually starting to look like a park. There are workers
busily getting thing prepared; every little detail, from the
placement of rocks, to the angle of the lights. Nothing is
too small to look over.

Eddie walks to the gate at front. He looks up and guides the


crawler crane operator with his hand gestures, the one
holding the big electronic sign.

EDDIE
A little to the left!
(looking)
Yeah! That’s it!

The crane lowers the sign, somehow, perfectly onto the


ground. It looks great, angled just right for visitors to
see.

Eddie gives a thumbs-up. The crane swings away and leaves.


Eddie grabs a cord from the back and connects it into an
outdoor socket.

The sign lights up: LOADING WIRELESS INFORMATION

The loading bar completes, 100%. Eddie smiles.

A message pops up: WELCOME TO JURASSIC HAZARD

EDDIE
(to self)
What the hell?
(to others)
Alright?! Who’s the wise-guy?!
Whoever it is, you’re fired!

EXT. SASHA’S HOUSE - BACKYARD - DAY

Max is in Sasha’s backyard, throwing pebbles at the window on


the left.

MAX
Sasha! Come on! Talk to me! I’m
sorry about the argument we had!

The window opens. An older man sticks his head out the
window, SASHA’S FATHER.
40.

SASHA’S FATHER
For the love of Pete! The other
window boy!

MAX
Sorry!

Max throws a pebble on the window to the right. The window


opens.

MAX
Sasha!

Sasha sticks her head out.

SASHA
We broke up remember?

MAX
That protest wasn’t even about the
dinos and you know it!

SASHA
I know! That’s why we have to stay
broken up, otherwise I’ll look like
a doofus. Although my IQ does
border on that of a genius.

SASHA MAX
130. 130.

MAX
Yeah, okay. We all know.

SASHA
Just saying.

MAX
So, can we get back together or
what?

SASHA
Don’t be so desperate, Max. We
always get back together. It’s just
an episode. I need some space.

MAX
But I have tickets for Jurassic
Park!

Max shows the tickets he swiped from Eddie’s trailer.


41.

SASHA
You just don’t get it do you? I’m
against it!

MAX
Why?

SASHA
My dad was a scientist on the ol’
JP.

MAX
He was a scientist on the original
Jurassic Park?!

Sasha throws one of her stuffed toys out the window, at Max’s
head.

SASHA
Keep it down would you!

MAX
So are we going to Jurassic Park or
what?

SASHA
You really don’t -- ugh!

Sasha slams her window shut.

MAX
Sasha! So what’s the answer?!

EXT. GRANT’S HOUSE - MAIN STAIRS - DAY

Max creeps down the stairs, very slowly, trying to keep quiet
against the creaking and squeaking.

GRANT (OS)
You’re not going to Jurassic Park
are you?!

MAX
(to self)
Crap.
(to Grant)
Yeah...

GRANT (OS)
I’m coming!
42.

MAX
What?

Grant joins Max on the stairs.

GRANT
I said I was coming.

MAX
I thought you...

GRANT
I can’t stop you from going, so I’m
coming with you.

MAX
Gonna try and stop a dino rampage,
huh?

GRANT
Don’t joke about that.

Grant puts on his famous hat.

EXT. NEW JURASSIC PARK - DAY

Grant and Max walk up to the humongous gates as a sea of


people easily walk past them. Grant is extremely
apprehensive.

GRANT
I know it’s not the same, but it
still gives me a chill.

MAX
You never know if you don’t try.

GRANT
Problem is, I have.

EXT. NEW JURASSIC PARK - INSIDE GROUNDS - DAY

Grant, still cynical as ever, stares at the smiling families,


posing with the dinosaur statues.

GRANT
Oh they have no idea...

Max takes Grant by his arm.


43.

MAX
Come on, this is the safety zone.
The dinosaurs are up ahead.

GRANT
But --

Max grabs Grant and drags him along.

EXT. COASTER ZONE - START AREA - DAY

Max and Grant are inside a car, reminiscent of the old,


Jurassic Park... Except these vehicles have no roofs

GRANT
This is crazy. These things don’t
even have roofs.

There’s another set of people in the vehicle. The LITTLE BOY


with the stuffed dino looks at Grant.

LITTLE BOY
The park shuts down at night and
when it rains. The place is solar
powered. There’s no need for a
roof.

GRANT
You obviously haven’t been around
dinosaurs.

The cars speed up and go further down, past the flat plain
land and into the denser jungle.

EXT. COASTER ZONE - JUNGLE AREA - DAY

There are no wires or barriers to keep the dinosaurs away.


Grant of course notices this right away.

GRANT
No fences. No barriers. This is
madness.

MAX
Dad, you’re bein’ a buzz-kill.
Enjoy it for what it is.

EXT. AMONGST THE TREES - DAY

An unseen creatures gallops, running fast, running forward.


44.

EXT. COASTER ZONE - JUNGLE AREA - DAY

A raptor jumps out from the bushes. It shrieks and flashes


its teeth. Everyone but Grant and Max becomes startled. His
eyes look down and see the creature has a thick cable
attached to its leg.

GRANT
How clever...

The raptor tries to tug itself forward, looking at the


tourists like they’re the next meal.

MAX
(stunned)
Wow. A real velociraptor... Hey
what if somebody crazy decides to
jump outta these things?

GRANT
They’re lunch.

LITTLE BOY
Actually the cables have hollow
tubes attached in ‘em. If a
passenger jumps out of the vehicle,
a sedative is released into all
carnivorous creature... and if that
doesn’t work it has electric wires
to zap ‘em... It’s also to prevent
chewing.

MAX
You seem to know a lot about this
stuff.

LITTLE BOY
I’ve been preparing for the grand
opening all my life.

MAX
All your life? How old are you?

The Little Boy raises his fingers, gesturing seven. Max


raises an eyebrow. The car starts moving forward. It takes
them toward the tunnel area.
45.

EXT. COASTER ZONE - TUNNEL AREA - DAY

The cars go underground into the tunnel area. It’s lit by an


orange light, torches lined against the wall. A very eerie
atmosphere.

MAX
What do you think we’ll see in
here?

GRANT
Not something good I assure you.

The car stops by an enormous glass panel, part of an


aquarium.

MAX
(excited)
Oh no. Oh no. We’re going to see,
sea creatures!

One of the passengers takes a picture. The bright flash dazes


grant. He rubs his eyes.

GRANT
I don’t see anything...

LITTLE BOY
I bet it’s a T-rex.

MAX
T-rexes don’t go under water.

LITTLE BOY
Gimme a break, I’m seven years old.

Max turns back, stares at the glass. The car starts moving.

MAX
Hey! What a rip-off! We never saw
anything.

As Max leans out of the car, Grant pulls him in.

SPEAKER IN CAR (VO)


Please do not lean out the vehicle.

EXT. NEW JURASSIC PARK - DAY

Grant and Max are leaving the park.


46.

MAX
Man! What a rip-off. I hardly saw
anything.

GRANT
It’s probably for the better.

MAX
I’m glad we got these tickets free.
You know how much it costs to get
in? A hundred bucks!

GRANT
Max, there’s no need to complain...
It’s a well run park.

MAX
That’s not what you said the last
time you went.

GRANT
Those were different
circumstances... Very different.

A HEFTY MAN in a blue suit accidentally bumps into Grant,


causing his hat to fall.

HEFTY MAN
(face not seen)
I’m terrible sorry.

Grant and the Hefty Man bend over at the same time. Their
eyes meet. AL GORE smiles. He grabs Grant’s hat and hands it
back to him.

MAX
Is that?

GRANT
Al Gore!

AL GORE
That’s me, alright.
(smiles)
So nice to meet you Dr. Grant. I
loved your book.

Al Gore shakes Grant’s hand.

GRANT
I never knew you had such a keen
interest in dinosaurs.
47.

AL GORE
Actually, I’m visiting the park to
commend them on their
environmentally friendly practices.
The park uses 100% alternative
energy -- mainly solar power... Oh
and I also received free tickets.
(jokingly)
Who doesn’t want to see dinosaurs
for free, am I right?

GRANT
Yes...

AL GORE
So are you gents environmentally
friendly? If you don’t mind my
asking.

MAX
We try.

AL GORE
You know, global warming is an
important issue -- especially in
California. The west coast is one
of the most vulnerable areas.

MAX
I think it’s pretty safe.

AL GORE
To each his own I suppose... It was
nice meeting you, Dr. Grant.
(looks at Max)
And...

MAX
Max.

AL GORE
Yes, Max. Nice meeting you both.

Al Gore nods. Grant tips his hat as he walks away into the
park.

GRANT
(to Max)
Now surely you cannot say your
visit was boring.

MAX
Pure luck. The park stills stinks.
48.

GRANT
Yeah -- too many dinosaurs.

EXT. LONELY ROAD - DAY

A boxy Hertz RENTAL CAR whizzes down the road, through the
rain, thunder, and lightning.

INT. LONELY ROAD - RENTAL CAR - DAY

Ellie squints as water pounds down against her windshield,


the wipers going back and forth. She turns on the radio.

RADIO (VO)
Look out Californians! We are going
through some severe weather! Take
out the umbrella, the cats and dogs
are falling! It is strongly advised
that you do not drive in this
stormy weather.

ELLIE
Now he tells me.

RADIO (VO)
Stay indoors and lock the windows!
A hurricane warning is in effect.
If you are bombarded by hail,
please do not --

The radio fizzles and goes out. Ellie reaches for the big
black knob and turns it off. She continues driving,
struggling to see where she is.

ELLIE
God, where the hell am I?

Ellie brakes. She reaches into the glove compartment and


takes out a map. As she reads the map a baseball size chunk
of hail falls onto her windshield -- crack!

ELLIE
(screams)
Jesus!

Ellie folds the map and throws it to the side. She steps on
the gas.
49.

EXT. LONELY ROAD - DAY

The car moves forward, the front wheel falls into a pothole
full of water.

INT. LONELY ROAD - RENTAL CAR - DAY

Ellie tries to gas it, but her car is totally stuck.

ELLIE
Damn it...

Ellie grabs a magazine wedged between the seats, she jumps


out the car and uses it for cover. She looks at the stuck
wheel. Then she takes out a cell-phone.

INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - GRANT’S ROOM - DAY

Grant is putting supplies into a large green military back


pack, when the phone on his night stand rings. He drops what
he’s doing and goes to answer it. The reception is not very
clear.

GRANT
(on phone)
Hello?

INTERCUT TELEPHONE CONVERSATION

ELLIE
(on phone, in car)
Grant!

GRANT
Ellie?

ELLIE
I need some help.

GRANT
Where are you?

ELLIE
I’m on the road -- stuck!

GRANT
What’re you doing on the road?
Everyone’s evacuating the city.
50.

ELLIE
What?

GRANT
There might be a flood... There’s
something wrong with the dam.

ELLIE
Just come and get me will you?

GRANT
You want me to go out in the midst
of hurricane weather? You gotta be
kidding.

ELLIE
Grant!

GRANT
I’m only teasing! I’ll be over
there in a minute. Where are you?

INT. LONELY ROAD - MAX’S CAR - DAY

Grant is driving Max’s car. Max in the backseat with his arms
folded.

MAX
I still don’t see why you won’t let
me drive. It’s my car!

GRANT
I paid for it... Plus, I’m a better
driver.

MAX
Yeah right.

Grant sees Ellie waving in the rain.

EXT. LONELY ROAD - DAY

The Cadillac stops by Ellie. The front right door swings


open. Ellie, dripping wet, gets inside.

INT. LONELY ROAD - MAX’S CAR - DAY

Ellie shivers as Grant spins the car around and drives in the
opposite direction.
51.

ELLIE
Thanks for coming so soon.

GRANT
It was nothing.

ELLIE
So there’s a hurricane, huh?

GRANT
Apparently. We’re going to leave
the city... Only temporarily of
course.

ELLIE
The weather here is never usually
this bad. It’s unusual.

GRANT
When’s the last time you been here?

ELLIE
I was fifteen.

GRANT
Well, there you go. Times change.

MAX
Will you two stop flirting with
each other, please?

GRANT
Max, don’t be so rude. We’re not
flirting with each other...
(look to Ellie)
Are we?

ELLIE
I guess some flames never die.

MAX
(rolls eyes)
Oh my God.

EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY

The Cadillac slows down as a long line of cars appears ahead.

INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR - DAY

Max wipes the fog off his window and looks.


52.

MAX
Jeez that’s a long line up.

GRANT
Patience is a virtue.

MAX
I don’t even know what that means.

GRANT
It means to pipe down... It’s not
so bad.

MAX
Compared to what?

GRANT
Exactly.

EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY

The cars are going mad, people honking their horns and
screaming. But Grant is calm, he slowly moves the car
forward.

INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR - DAY

Ellie slumps back.

ELLIE
This is the pits.

MAX
Speaking of the pits... Dad, can I
use your cell-phone? I gotta call
Sasha, see if she made it outta the
city.

GRANT
It’s not gonna work.

MAX
How do you know?

GRANT
Trust me. Not in this weather.
Lines must be jammed with people
calling their loved ones.

MAX
Will you just --
53.

Grant tosses Max the cell-phone. He picks it up and dials,


Sasha. He puts the phone to his ear and waits.

GRANT
Well?

Max frowns and gives the cell-phone back to Grant.

GRANT
I’m sure she’s fine.

EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY

A tidal wave washes out the bridge, taking the car in people
into the “drink.”

INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR - DAY

Grant, Ellie and Max lean forward and look in shock.

MAX
Did you just --

EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY

A car in the back bumps into Max’s Cadillac, pushing it


forward. More cars fall into the water.

INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR - DAY

Grant looks in his rearview mirror.

GRANT
What the...

The car is moving forward.

ELLIE
The bridge is out.

GRANT
It’s not me. I’m not...

Grant steps on the brake, the car keeps moving. Grant looks
in the rearview mirror, sees the car pushing forward. Grant
winds down his window and screams outside.

GRANT
The bridge is out! Can’t you see!
54.

INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - OTHER CAR - DAY

An old lady with coke bottle glasses steps on the gas. She
can barely see.

EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY

Max’s car keeps moving forward. The old lady keeps pushing
against the bumper.

INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR - DAY

Grant puts the car in reverse.

GRANT
Come on.

The car barely budges.

GRANT
What’s wrong with this piece of
junk?!

MAX
Why do you think I asked you for
all that money last week?! I needed
cash for a new set of tires...
These are bald!

EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY

Max’s car is the last vehicle, besides the old lady pushing,
ahead the remains of the bridge. It’s being pushed to the
edge.

INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR

Grant tries to turn the wheel.

MAX
Turn the wheel, get this thing
around!

GRANT
Can’t you see I’m trying that!

MAX
Try harder!
55.

GRANT
Get ready to jump!

MAX
What?!

EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY

Grant, Ellie, and Max jump out of the car. It falls into the
water and gets swept away. Grant gets up, angrily. He goes up
to the last standing car, the one with the old lady.

GRANT
What’s wrong with you?! You almost
killed my wife and kid?!

ELLIE
Huh?

GRANT
(flustered)
I mean -- YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!

No response. Grant opens the car door of the BUICK. The old
lady is passed out. Grant leans over and puts two of his
fingers on her neck to check her pulse. She’s dead.

GRANT
She’d dead.

EXT. LONELY ROAD - DAY

The old lady’s car, the Buick, speeds down the road.

INT. LONELY ROAD - OLD LADY’S CAR - DAY

Grant and Ellie are up front. Max is in the back cornered


with the old lady’s corpse.

MAX
Uh... Can we switch seats?

GRANT
What’s wrong? Not enough room back
there?

MAX
A mansion wouldn’t be enough room.
56.

EXT. NEW JURASSIC PARK - DAY

The water is getting high, several inches.

EXT. SOLAR PANEL FIELD - DAY

A park worker surveys the solar panel field. He looks up at


the sky, the clouds covering every bit of the sun.

INT. POWER CENTER - DAY

A worker sits down at a computer monitoring the energy


levels, they’re quickly depleting. GEORGE turns his head back
to Eddie.

GEORGE
Sir, I don’t think we’ll have
enough power to run the park. It’s
too cloudy.

Eddie takes a sip from his glass of scotch.

EDDIE
What do you mean there isn’t enough
power? What about battery storage?

GEORGE
Same thing.
(clicks around on
computer)
I think we overestimated its
capabilities.

EDDIE
Wind?

GEORGE
Knocked out. The wind knocked ‘em
down.

EDDIE
Use the gas.

GEORGE
I don’t think there’s enough.

EDDIE
Don’t patronize me.
57.

George moves the mouse cursor and clicks on an icon to engage


gas usage.

EXT. WATERY ROAD - DAY

The Buick’s wheels roll through the water.

INT. WATERY ROAD - OLD LADY’S CAR - DAY

Max is at the back of the car, sitting in the middle, the old
lady is gone.

MAX
Where are we going?

GRANT
I don’t know.

MAX
But you’re dad. You gotta know.

GRANT
Parents seem like they know
everything -- but it’s usually just
ad-lib.

MAX
And you’re telling me this now?

GRANT
Max, stop chattering. Look to see
if there’s any place we can take
shelter.

Max rolls down his window and sticks his head out. The rain
falls on his face as he looks up at large hotel building.

MAX
Hey how about that?

Grant looks out and stops the car.

GRANT
I don’t know. Do they take VISA?

Ellie getes out of the car.

GRANT
Ellie, wait!

Grant and Max get out.


58.

EXT. BIG HOTEL - DAY

Ellie wades through the water. She gets to the front doors
and tugs on the large golden handle, “Ugh!”

GRANT
Hold on...

Grant goes to help Ellie. They both pull on the door handle.
The pressure of the water, the rising water, is keeping it
close.

MAX
Simplify!

Max kicks the glass of the door and steps inside. Grant and
Ellie follow.

GRANT
(shrugs)
It is effective.

INT. BIG HOTEL - LOBBY - DAY

Max, Ellie and Grant walk cautiously through the lobby. It’s
very luxurious. High ceilings. Lots of room. Gotta be at
least 4 stars.

MAX
You think anyone else is here?
(shouting, hands around
mouth)
Hellooooo!

GRANT
Hold on a moment.

Grant sits down on a chair.

GRANT
I need to rest.

MAX
Come on, let’s look around.

GRANT
Tell me if you find anything.

Grant rests his hat over his face.


59.

MAX
But...

ELLIE
I’ll come with you.

MAX
Oh, okay.

GRANT
Don’t get in trouble.

INT. BIG HOTEL STAIRWELL - DAY

Max and Ellie trek up the water soaked stairs.

MAX
What was it like in the original
Jurassic Park?

ELLIE
It’s not like the one they have
now.

MAX
If I met a T-rex, I don’t think I
could stay still. I’d run.

ELLIE
Most people would.

MAX
...So you and my dad used to be an
item, huh?

ELLIE
I guess you could say that.

MAX
What do you see in him? I mean no
offence, but he’s kind of boring.

ELLIE
He has courage when it counts.

MAX
That’s a quality women look for in
men?

ELLIE
I guess. Damsel in distress, right?
60.

MAX
Hmmm...

A noise echoes in the stairwell. A loud THUMP. Max puts his


arm out in front of Ellie and stops in his “tracks.”

MAX
What was that?

ELLIE
It’s probably nothing.

MAX
I should check it out. You stay
here, m -- an.

Max’s face goes flush red, embarrassed, almost calling Ellie


his mom.

MAX
You stay here, maaan. I’ll check it
out.

Ellie raises an eyebrow. Max continues up the steps. The


noise happens again. Max gets to a dark corner. He takes out
a little LED flashlight and shines it down. It barely lights
up the place.

MAX
I come in peace!

Max slowly walks up, a kid named RAVEN pops out at him.

RAVEN
BOOOOOOOOO!

CUT TO:

Max tumbles down the stairs in front of Ellie.

ELLIE
Max!
(bends down beside)
Are you alright?

Max rubs his head and gets up. Raven runs down the stairs.

RAVEN
Sorry ‘bout your head!

MAX
(pissed)
Yeah, well...
61.

Raven gives a broad smile. One of her teeth is missing. She’s


probably no older than ten.

MAX
Okay.

EXT. NEW JURASSIC PARK - DAY

The gates to the new, Jurassic Park, are busted open. The
marquee is hanging down and there are smears of blood along
the battered and splintered doors.

INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - FRONT - DAY

The doorknob at the front door slowly turns, Raven leads


Ellie, Max, and Grant inside.

RAVEN
This is where I’m staying. My
name’s Raven by the way.

They walk forward, into the living room.

INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - LIVING ROOM - DAY.

Grant’s eyes wander around the presidential suite, he gazes


at the abundant luxuries. The place looks better than his own
home.

RAVEN
You’re welcome to be my guests if
you’d like.

GRANT
Are you here all alone?

RAVEN
No. Buddy’s with me.

ELLIE
Who’s Buddy?

Raven pats the dead space beside her, like there’s something
there.

RAVEN
My imaginary pet monkey, Buddy.
(turns)
Say hello, buddy!
62.

MAX
Let’s find our own rooms.

RAVEN
Oh no. You can’t.

MAX
And why not?

RAVEN
You’ll be lonely... Plus, this
place has the best view.

Raven runs to the curtains and pulls them open. There is


indeed a great view, looking over the whole city.

RAVEN
Stay won’t you? I gathered all the
supplies we need to last for the
entire storm season.

MAX
You mean you ransacked all the
rooms and brought everything here.

RAVEN
Semantics.

GRANT
Okay, we’ll keep you company.

CUT TO:

Grant, Ellie, Max, and Raven are sitting down on the couches
sipping hot cocoa. They are washed in a warm glow emanating
from the roaring fireplace.

RAVEN
How’s the hot cocoa, Mr. Grant?

GRANT
Very nice, thank you.

MAX
(chews on marshmallow)
When do you think this thing will
be over?

The noise of the rain against the windows gets louder.

ELLIE
Soon I hope.
63.

The sound of an OPENING DOOR is heard. Grant looks behind his


shoulder.

GRANT
I thought you said you were alone,
Raven.

RAVEN
I never said that.

A figures emerges from the shadow -- IAN Malcolm. He has a


towel around his head.

IAN
Company! Oh my! I look like a mess!

Ian puts his towel down as Grant and Ellie stand up to greet
him.

GRANT
Ian.
(starts to set in)
Ian?

IAN
That’s my name, don’t wear it out.

ELLIE
What are you doing here?

IAN
I can ask the same question. But I
presume you came to escape the
chaos -- that which I mean the
really bad weather... That’s a bit
of an understatement, don’t yah
think?

Ian walks around Grant and sits down. Ellie and Grant do the
same as well.

IAN
This is like a family reunion, huh?
(points to Max)
Except I don’t recognize you.

GRANT
That’s my son, Max.

Ian nods.
64.

IAN
You look just like your dad... So
might I ask where the missis is?

GRANT
She’s no longer with us.

IAN
Oh my God! She didn’t --

GRANT
No. This was long before.

IAN
Well I’m sorry to hear, anyway.

GRANT
(looking at Raven)
So who’s the little sprite in your
life?

IAN
I really don’t know. She just told
me her name was Raven.

GRANT
You mean you don’t know her?

IAN
I... I wish I did. But she’s tight
as a clam.

GRANT
So are you lost like the rest of
us, Ian? What are you doing here?

IAN
In this building? Or do you mean in
general? In general... I’m just on
vacation.

ELLIE
Some vacation, huh?

IAN
It’s certainly better than the one
we had in 1993...

GRANT
That memory never dies does it?
65.

IAN
Chaos is not easily forgotten...
And I don’t mean the Bush
administration.

Max stands up.

MAX
I have to go out for a minute.
(bit nervous)
I uh need to take a walk.

Raven stands up too.

RAVEN
Take me with you.

MAX
Sorry. I don’t hang out with kids.

GRANT
(stern)
Take her with you...

MAX
Alright, fine.
(to Raven)
But if you get on my nerves, I’ll --

Raven looks up Max with her big beady eyes.

MAX
I’ll be pretty angry.

EXT. BIG HOTEL - DAY

Max walks along with Raven as she happily splashes around in


the water.

RAVEN
La! La! La! La! La! La! La! La! La!

MAX
Will you stop that?

Raven and Max get under a tree. It protects them from the
rain. Max reaches into his pocket and takes out a pack of
cigarettes.

RAVEN
(shocked)
Awwwwwwwwwwww!
66.

MAX
What? What is that noise?

RAVEN
Awww, you can’t smoke.

MAX
Who says?

RAVEN
It’s bad for you. So says the
Sturgeon General.

MAX
Screw that fish. I need a smoke.

Max takes out a cigarette. It flogs over, soggy from water.

MAX
Aw just great. Now what?

Raven takes out a pack of Popeye candy sticks.

RAVEN
You can have one of mine if you
want.

Max looks at it.

MAX
...Yeah, alright.

Raven flips open the box. Max takes a candy stick, put it in
his mouth like a toothpick.

RAVEN
How’s it taste?

MAX
(takes a bite)
Like sugared chalk.

A loud BABOOM is heard. Raven screams. She runs to Max and


hugs his leg.

MAX
Relax it’s just thunder.

It happens again. BABOOM.

MAX
I think it’s thunder.
67.

Max looks down. The BABOOM happens again. Concentric circles


form in the water around his ankles. A T-REX ROAR bellows.

MAX
I think we better get back to the
hotel.

Max takes Raven by the hand, as they run for the hotel a
T-rex twists around the corner and appears in front of them.
Raven screams. Max covers her mouth.

MAX
Don’t move.

Raven squirms. The T-rex lowers its head and looks at her.

MAX
(low voice)
If you don’t move, he can’t see
you. A T-rex is stimulated by
motion. Just stay still.

The T-rex roars. The wind and spittle pushes back Max and
Raven’s hair. Raven gets scared. She pulls away from Max and
she starts to run in the opposite direction. Max follows her.

MAX
I told you not to run!

The T-rex’s little arms hang down as it chases Max and Raven.
Raven turns into an alleway, Max goes there too.

EXT. ALLEWAY - DAY

Max and Raven run to the back, by the big brick wall, the
dead end. The T-rex tries to squish between the buildings. It
snaps its jaws trying to reach.

MAX
We’re trapped.

RAVEN
What do we do? What do we do?!

Max picks up a garbage can lid.

MAX
Ever play frisbee with a dog?

Max pulls back the lid.


68.

MAX
On the count of three. One...
Two... THREE!

Max throws the lid. It whirls over the T-rex’s head. The
T-rex turns around. Max and Raven run between its legs.

EXT. BIG HOTEL - DAY

Max and Raven run as the T-rex chases after them. They go
through the glass door. The T-rex sticks its head through.

MAX
Ha! Can’t get in can you?

Max picks up a pebble from the floor and flings it at the


T-rex. The T-rex roars. It shoves its body through.

MAX
Oh shit.

The T-rex swings its tail around. Max and Raven duck out the
way. They jump over the couches and run as they T-rex chases
behind. They turn a corner into the hallway with elevators.

INT. ELEVATOR AREA - DAY

Max presses the up button for the elevator while holding


Raven’s hand. The elevator doors open. A T-rex taps its toe
on the floor and looks at Max and Raven.

Max and Raven fall back. They scramble to their feet and run
toward the direction of the T-rex. They stop in their track.

MAX
Oh right, the T-rex.

They look behind and slowly walk backward, toward the middle
of the hall, the elevator area. The raptor starts to run. Max
and Raven duck down. It jumps forward -- right onto the T-
rex’s head.

The T-rex pulls back and swings around. Max pulls up Raven.

MAX
C’mon.

He takes her into the elevator.


69.

INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - FRONT - DAY

There is a large hole in the front door, through which Max


uses to look in.

MAX
Aw no...

RAVEN (OS)
What?

MAX
Hole equals bad.

RAVEN (OS)
Just go in.

MAX
Raven don’ --

Raven tries turning the doorknob, the whole thing falls


forward.

MAX
See what yah did?

RAVEN
Sorry.

MAX
Let’s go. Try not to make any
noise.

Raven pretends to zip her mouth. She and Max slowly walk into
the presidential suite, into the living room.

INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - LIVING ROOM - DAY

Their eyes go immediately to the flipped over couches.

MAX
Stay here.

RAVEN
But --

MAX
DO NOT move.

Max grabs a lamp, wielding it like a weapon. He cautiously


walks over to the long three person couch.
70.

As Raven stands quietly, a Dilophosaur appears behind in the


doorway. It leaps over to her and stands by her leg, also
watching as well.

RAVEN
(notices)
Max?

MAX
Not now. I’m busy.

The Dilophosaur spreads out its frill.

RAVEN
Max!

MAX
(turns around)
What?!

The Dilophosaur jumps up onto one of the flipped over couches


and makes a rattling noise at Max.

MAX
Don’t make any sudden movements...

Raven starts backing away, when she accidentally falls down.


The noise startles the Dilophosaur, it turns around and
screeches.

Max tosses the lamp. It smashes into the Dilophosaur’s back,


knocking it over. Max jumps over the couch and grabs Raven by
the hand. The Dilophosaur shakes its head, dazed from the
attack.

Max and Raven run to the west wing of the suite.

INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - WEST WING - DAY

They go into a door.

INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - BATHROOM - DAY

Max and Raven find themselves in a bathroom. They hear the


noise of the wily Dilophosaur from outside.

MAX
Raven, you okay?

RAVEN
Yeah...
71.

The shower curtain behind suddenly pulls open. Max and Raven
become startled. Ian Malcolm is in the freestanding tub.

IAN
(jokingly)
Would you mind? I’m trying to have
some privacy here.

Raven hugs Ian.

RAVEN
Dr. Malcolm!

MAX
Where’s everybody else?

IAN
They went looking for you.

MAX
Didn’t they know I went outside for
a smoke?

IAN
You smoke. Oh, that’s bad.

MAX
I know, I know.

IAN
Grant thought you went looking for
your girlfriend. They uh took a
raft outside. Search and rescue.

MAX
I gotta go get them.

IAN
No, no, no. That’s not a good idea.
Stay here. I assure you they will
come back.

Raven climbs into the tub with Ian.

MAX
I have to...

Max reaches for the doorknob.

IAN
Are you going to go back -- where
the dinosaur are?
72.

Ian adjusts his glasses.

IAN
I think that’s a bad idea.

Max starts to turn the doorknob.

IAN
(points to window)
No, no. Go out the express route.

MAX
Huh?

IAN
Go out the window.

MAX
We’re five floors up.

Ian gets up and lifts the window.

IAN
Take a look.

Max goes to look. The flood is super high. It’s only a couple
feet to hit the water.

MAX
Okay, so what am I gonna use as a
boat?

IAN
There’s one right.

MAX
(looks)
Where?

Ian taps on the bathtub.

IAN
A little duct tape and she is ready
to go.

Ian takes out a roll of duct tape.

MAX
You carry around duct tape?

IAN
Never can be too prepared my
friend.
73.

Ian duct tapes the hole shut in the bath tub. Lots and lots
of tape.

IAN
There. I think that should hold for
your excursion.

EXT. FLOODED BOULEVARD - DAY

Grant and Ellie are together in an inflated raft, rowing.

ELLIE
That boy of yours is awfully
rash... I think he gets it from
you.

Grant tilts his head to the side, “Probably.” Ellie pauses


from rowing, she lifts up a pair of binoculars and looks down
the boulevard... or what’s left of it.

ELLIE
He must’ve gone back.

Ellie wipes the fog off the front of her binoculars.

GRANT
Let’s keep looking a bit longer.

Grant squints and sees a motorboat. It spins around and pulls


up to the raft. There is a man with a dog.

The man’s name is HUNTER. The dog’s name is RUSTY.

HUNTER
You think you can survive in this
weather with that lil rubber raft?

GRANT
I’m looking for my son...

HUNTER
Trust me. You won’t find anybody in
that piece of shit.

ELLIE
Are you offering us a ride?

HUNTER
Hop in.

Grant reluctantly gets into the boat. Ellie does too.


74.

HUNTER
Now that I’m trying to make friends
here -- but just so you know, my
name’s Hunter. And my dog, his name
is Rusty.

ELLIE
(pats dog)
Good boy.

Rusty barks.

GRANT
I know it’s not very sturdy, but I
think we should keep the raft.

HUNTER
Right! Never a bad idea to be
over-prepared... There’s a rope in
the cooler.

Grant goes into the orange cooler and takes out a yellow
rope. He ties the raft to the motorboat. He gives a thumbs up
to Hunter.

Hunter pushes forward on the throttle.

CUT TO:

The motorboat speeds along the water. Hunter pulls back on


the throttle and stops.

GRANT
Why are we stopping?

HUNTER
I need some gas.

GRANT
Where are you going to get gas
from?

Hunter takes off his shirt and dives underwater. Several


seconds pass. Hunter pops up with a gas nozzle.

ELLIE
I didn’t know those things could
reach that far.

Hunter puts the gas nozzle into his boat.


75.

HUNTER
(pumping gas)
It’s a new gas station. The uh
hoses hang from the ceiling.
(finishes)

Hunter tries climbing back onto the boat, when something


pulls at him in the water.

HUNTER
What the?!

It pulls again. Grant and Ellie grabs Hunter as the dog,


Rusty, wildly barks.

GRANT
Hang on!

Grant and Ellie pull, but the wet Hunter slips away into the
water. A cloud of blood rises to the surface.

ELLIE
Can dinosaurs swim?

A POPPING noise catches Ellie and Grant’s attention. They


look back at the deflating raft. Suddenly the boat starts to
rock. Grant and Ellie slip and fall over. They hang onto the
sides, trying to keep from going into the water.

The nose of the motorboat starts to tilt upward, slowly going


vertical.

ELLIE
I can’t hold on!

Ellie loses her grip, she and Rusty catch on to Grant’s leg.

GRANT
Ellie!

The motorboat tilts more. Ellie slides off into the water.
The boat suddenly slams back down. An enormous green tail
splashes in front.

Ellie pops her head out of the water. Grant pulls her in as
the head of a Dakosaurus surfaces from behind. He dashes to
the front of the motorboat and pushes the throttle forward.
He takes control as the Dakosaurus chases them.

ELLIE
(looks back)
What is that thing?
76.

GRANT
(steering)
I would take a closer look at tell
you, but I’m not so sure I want to
do that!

ELLIE
Dakosaurus! It’s a dakosaurus!

The motorboat takes a corner and does a drift. The Dakosaurus


is catching up, only several feet away.

GRANT
Throw the dog!

ELLIE
What?!

GRANT
It’ll distract him!

Ellie looks at Rusty. Rust whimpers and covers his eyes.


Ellie looks in the cooler as the Dakosaurus zigzags, making
waves in the water. She finds a pistol. She takes it out and
aims it.

Three shots. Bang! Bang! Bang! The Dakosaurus submerges


underwater.

ELLIE
I think scared it off!

The Dakosaurus rises from the water, it jumps up and flips in


front of the motorboat. The motorboat turns and capsizes. It
sinks down.

Ellie, Grant and Rusty tread water as the water motions


around them, The Dakosaurus underneath, circling.

GRANT
I think this is the end, Ellie...

Max suddenly appears in his bathtub. He waves at Grant.

MAX
Dad!

GRANT
Max! Get out of here!

The Dakosaurus starts swimming toward Max. Max tries to


paddle away with a pair of bathroom plungers.
77.

As the Dakosaurus leaps up into the air, the head of an


Elasmosaurus arises and snaps on to its tail. It takes the
Dakosaurus and swings it around, throwing it straight through
a building.

The Elasmosaurus bows its neck and looks down at Max. Max
sinks down and cowers. The Elasmosaurus brings itself closer,
it’s a harmless creature. Seeing this, Max pets its head.

MAX
You’re not such a bad guy are you?

The Elasmosaurus lets out a sound of contentedness, like a


happy dolphin. Then it sinks away into the water. Grant,
Ellie, and Rusty join Max.

ELLIE
Mind if we hitch a ride?

Max picks up Rusty and puts him in the tub.

MAX
Follow me.

He spins the boat and moves forward. Grant and Ellie follow
behind, slowly swimming. Max stops the boat over a flat area
of water. He gets out and stands up. He’s standing on water.

MAX
Tada!

GRANT
How?

Grant and Ellie swim ahead, they crawl and stand up to.

MAX
Remember Dad? The convention
center!

GRANT (CONT’D)
They have boats down there.

Grant bends over and looks. Underneath the glass roof are a
ton of boats. Big boats.

GRANT
There are boats.

ELLIE
How are we going to get them? Do
they even have gas?
78.

MAX
Yeah, yeah. This convention’s
crazy. Biggest boat convention in
the country. They go all out.

Rusty chases his tail around in the bathtub.

GRANT
(points)
Get on that building.

Ellie looks back.

GRANT
Get on the ledge... Max, go.

Max nods. He, Ellie and Rusty swim over to the building. They
stand on the ledges.

ELLIE
Alright! Now what, Alan?!

Grant stamps down. A CRACK noise is heard. He jumps and


starts swimming toward the ledge. More CRACKING. A big hole
forms as the glass gives way, water starts swirling in. Grant
swims as hard as he can.

MAX
He’s not gonna make it!

Max jumps into the water. He hangs onto the ledge and extends
his legs like a ladder. Ellie grabs onto the shoulder part of
his clothes to keep him from getting sucked in. Grant grabs
onto one of Max’s legs.

The water swirls and swirls. The convention center is filling


up. Grant struggles to hold on.

MAX
Don’t let go!

GRANT
You don’t have to tell me!

Rusty bites onto Max’s shirt, pulling along with Ellie,


struggling to keep the two from getting swept away.

The whirlpool becomes weaker. The convention center stops


filling. A large Boston Whaler buoys to the top.

CUT TO:
79.

EXT. FLOODED STREET - DAY

Ellie steers the Boston Whaler. Max screams out.

MAX
There she is!

Ellie slows the boat down. Sasha is sitting on top of the


roof of her house.

MAX
Sasha!

Max jumps into the water and swims over to her. He joins her
on the roof. They embrace each other.

MAX
I thought you were... Never mind.

SASHA
I knew you’d come for me.

Max lets go of Sasha.

MAX
Where’s your family?

SASHA
They went away on a weekend trip.
It’s just me.

Ellie pulls the boat around. Max and Sasha get on. Sasha,
cordial as ever, smiles and greets Grant and Ellie.

SASHA
(little wave)
Hello Dr. Grant, Dr. Sattler.

Grant and Ellie nod.

MAX
Let’s get out of here already.

SASHA
Where’re we gonna go?

Everyone looks to Grant.

GRANT
I --
80.

A SCREECH cuts off Grant. Everyone looks up. There is a trio


of pterodactyls circling above like buzzards. A cap drops
onto the floor of the boat.

Grant picks it up. It’s a Jurassic Park worker hat. There’s


blood lined around on the inside.

GRANT
Ellie, start the boat.

Ellie tries... The boat sputters.

GRANT
(looking up)
Ellie!

ELLIE
No gas!

Sasha leans on Max. The pterodactyls land on the boat. The


three of them hobble forward. As the group backs up, Rusty
growls and flashes his fangs.

The trio flap their wings and squawk. One of them jumps
forward and puts Rusty between its beak.

MAX
Hey!

Max dives to grab him, but falls flat when the pterodactyls
take off into the sky. Rusty whimpers, his voice gets weaker
the further he goes.

MAX
(waving fist)
You bastards!

Grant puts his hands around Max’s shoulder, to comfort him.

GRANT
It’s okay.

Max shrugs away. Heavily annoyed.

MAX
Stop trying to act like things are
okay! They’re not! They’re not!

SASHA
Max. Don’t make a scene.
81.

MAX
Here we are in the middle of a... a
disaster! And he’s trying to make
it seem alright! Well it’s not!
It’s not dad! There’s are dinosaurs
trying to eat us!

Max sits down.

MAX
(mumbles)
I’m having a nicotine fit...

The sound of a HELICOPTER is heard above. Grant, Ellie,


Sasha, and Max look up at big black rescue chopper, a double
blade CHINOOK.

A SOLDIER IN A HARNESS drops down.

SOLDIER IN HARNESS
Dr. Grant.

EXT. OVER CITY - RESCUE CHOPPER - DAY

The rain has stopped and the sky has cleared. The sun-sets as
the rescue chopper flies over the flooded city -- which is
barely recognizable. The place looks like a dystopian
nightmare.

INT. RESCUE CHOPPER - DAY

Grant looks out the window.

GRANT
(quietly)
When will people ever learn?

ELLIE
Alan, sit down. Take a rest.

Grant sits down. He looks around at the others, Ellie, Max,


Sasha, Ian, and Raven, tired and exhausted. Their eyes barely
open.

RAVEN
(leaning on Ian)
Where are they taking us Dr.
Malcolm?

IAN
Somewhere with less water I hope.
82.

EXT. SPORTS STADIUM - NIGHT

The dome sports stadium is being used as a rescue shelter.

INT. SPORTS STADIUM - NIGHT

There are a lot of people inside -- destitute, sick, and


tired folks.

Grant and the others are all grouped together.

Max plays cards with Ian and Raven, while Ellie combs Sasha’s
long black hair. Grant just stands. Watching over the place
like a hawk.

IAN
(dealing)
Alright the game is seven-card
stud, aces high, aces low...

Raven holds her cards, unsure.

RAVEN
What?

IAN
You do know how to play poker?

RAVEN
I uh... what’s poker?

IAN
Ah, that’s right. You don’t
gamble... Do you know how to play
go-fish?

Raven darts her eyes.

IAN
No? How about big-two?

RAVEN
Big-two?

IAN
Crazy eights. Everyone knows how to
play crazy eights.

Raven shakes her head, nope.


83.

IAN
Well. I really don’t know then...

RAVEN
Blackjack.

IAN
Huh?

RAVEN
I know how to play blackjack. 21,
is that what they call it?

IAN
Ah, so you do gamble. Okay. 21 it
is. Hand me back your cards.

Max and Raven give Ian back their cards. He shuffles it up


and deals. Raven looks at her hand, an ace and king. Max
looks at his hand, two of hearts and a queen of hearts.

MAX
Hit me.

Ian gives Max another card. He looks. He has a five of


diamonds.

MAX
Hit me.

IAN
You sure?

MAX
I’m sure.

Ian hands Max a card. Max gets a ten of clubs.

MAX
Damn.

IAN
Bust?

MAX
No. I meant ‘damn’ as in ‘damn
that’s good.’

Max hides one of his cards in his back pocket.

IAN
That’s some sleight of hand you got
there...
(MORE)
84.
IAN (CONT'D)
but I remember how many cards I
dealt you... Generally when you
cheat you replace a card, not just
put it away.

MAX
(to strangers)
Anybody have a checker board?

CUT TO:

Ellie is still combing Sasha’s hair.

ELLIE
How long have you and Max been
going out?

SASHA
A really long time.

ELLIE
How long?

SASHA
Mm... couple weeks. I think we have
a pretty stable relationship. We’ve
really endured. Getting over that
one week hump was real tough
though.

ELLIE
Tell me about it.

CUT TO:

Grant is walking around the superdome, when he bumps into a


young boy holding a lamp. He looks around twelve or so -- a
TWEEN.

TWEEN
Dr. Grant. Are you Dr. Grant? The
famous paleontologist?

Grant continues walking. The Tween follows him around.

TWEEN
You know my uncle’s actually, Jack
Horner. You might have heard of
him?

Grant stops walking and turns to the Tween.

GRANT
...How old are you?
85.

TWEEN
Thirteen in November.

GRANT
And you enjoy paleontology?

TWEEN
Oh yes, very much so.

GRANT
Have you ever played baseball?

TWEEN
No. Why?

GRANT
You should.

Grant starts walking again. The Tween keeps following him.

TWEEN
Is it true dinosaurs and animals
have a sixth sense? Like they can
sense danger?

GRANT
Some people would say that.

TWEEN
So if a natural disaster or
something like that were to hit a
city, they’d know to escape?

GRANT
I suppose.

TWEEN
Wow. You know everything.

Grant stops and puts his arm around the Tween with approval.

EXT. SPORTS STADIUM - NIGHT

A T-rex foot stamps on the ground.

INT. SPORTS STADIUM - NIGHT

Everyone is asleep. They’re totally exhausted. Not a person


is up -- nobody to notice the T-rex squeezing its way into
the stadium.
86.

It gets through the gate and starts exploring. The T-rex


gracefully makes its way over to the catering table. It
sticks out its tongue and scoops up the food, even eating the
packaging.

As it munches down on the snacks, Raven starts to wake up.


She rolls to the side on her cot and nudges Max. Though
because of the darkness, she does not notice the T-rex.

RAVEN
(whispering)
Max... Max!

MAX
(half asleep)
What?

RAVEN
I need to go to the bathroom...
Where’s the flashlight?

Max reaches under his cot and pushes out a flashlight. Raven
grabs it.

RAVEN
Thanks.

She gets up and turns it on. The light cuts through the dust,
creating a beam. Raven wanders with her eyes half-close. The
T-rex turns around and sees her. It follows her behind.

RAVEN
Where’s the bathroom. Gotta be
around here somewhere?

Raven stops walking. She shines her flashlight from side to


side. The T-rex’s eyes closely follow it. Its vision being
stimulated.

The T-rex steps forward and lowers its head by Raven. Its
nostrils flare as it blows back her hair. Raven turns around,
the flashlight pointing straight in the T-rex’s eye.

RAVEN
Oh hello...

The T-rex ROARS. Raven drops the flashlight and covers her
ears. Everyone in the sports stadium wakes up. Grant darts up
from his cot.

GRANT
Raven!
87.

The whole stadium SCREAMS. The T-rex waves its head and
ROARS. All the people start running. The T-rex swings away
from Raven and starts chasing the others. It snaps up one of
the people.

Grant, Ellie, Max, Sasha and Ian stay close together. They
lay low and try to keep still. They’re the only ones. Sasha
is scared out of her wits.

SASHA
Why aren’t we running with the
others?!

MAX
Trust me, my dad knows what he’s
doing.

Sasha is on the floor too, lying still. She looks at Grant


who nods his approval.

As the people crowd and try to escape at the gates, they


create a bottle neck. They get stuck. The T-rex tramps over
to them, sees them squirming like crabs in a bucket.

Screams, screams. More screams. They’re hysterical.

MAX
I can’t watch!

Max jumps out.

SASHA
Max!

He goes into a silver case and grabs a flare. He runs behind


the T-rex and screams.

MAX
Hey! Hey!

Max lights the flare. Its bright yellow-orange light


illuminates the stadium. The T-rex turns around.

MAX
I’m looking at you ugly! Yeah!
Remember me?!

Max starts running with the flare. He runs through the other
gate.
88.

EXT. SPORTS STADIUM - NIGHT

Max runs out of the Stadium. He suddenly stops and drops his
flare. He puts out his hands in surrender. Ahead of him,
standing in front -- the US army.

General CHARLIE bellows.

CHARLIE
Get out of the way!

Max drops down as the T-rex emerges from the stadium. The
army shine their lights.

CHARLIE
(signals)
Fire at will!

They fire their guns. Max crawls along the ground as the
bullets whiz over. The army stops shooting. The T-rex
swaggers and falls down. Its body sinks into the asphalt.
Blood flows onto the ground, swimming over to Max.

MAX
Ack!

Max gets up. He stands and leans against a tank. Charlie


laughs, “HA! HA! HA!” A black stretch limo swerves in front
of the T-rex and brakes. Eddie steps out, and without even
glancing back, walks forward and joins Charlie.

He gives him a firm handshake.

EDDIE
General Charlie! Congratulations!

CHARLIE
Anything for my little brother.

EDDIE
How long do you think it’ll be
before we can get this mess cleaned
up?

CHARLIE
Shouldn’t be too long. We got the
threat under control.

EDDIE
(looks at the T-rex)
It’s a shame. Such a majestic
creature, fell by technology...
89.

Eddie puts on a pair of sunglasses.

EDDIE
But I guess that’s what happens
when you have a brain the size of
walnut.

CHARLIE
(turns to men)
Alright! Let’s go!

Charlie hops in a tank, then he and the army leaves. As Eddie


walks toward his limo, Max runs over to him.

MAX
Mr. Soros!

Eddie pauses and spins.

EDDIE
Hello there.

MAX
You’re the CEO of NuTech, right?

EDDIE
That would be true.

MAX
Jurassic Park. You created the new
Jurassic Park.

EDDIE
I had a hand in it, yes...

MAX
I wanted to ask you if --

Max goes wide-eyed.

EDDIE
Yes?

The T-rex rises up behind.

MAX
I --

EDDIE
What is wrong with you?
90.

The T-rex opens its mouth and scoops up Eddie into its mouth.
It swallows him and fall down dead onto the stretch limo.
Crushing it flat.

Grant, Ellie, Sasha, Raven, and Ian come out of the stadium.

RAVEN
Whoa...

Ian saunters over to the front of the T-rex and rests his
head on its neck.

IAN
(listening)
It’s definitely dead.

Grant circles around the carcass of the T-rex.

GRANT
Max, what did you do?

A GROANING is heard. Grant pulls open the door on the driver


side. The LIMO DRIVER crawls out. Grant helps him up.

LIMO DRIVER
Thank you.

The Limo driver hobbles away as the rest gather around Max.
They look at the T-rex, wondering how such a large creature
could die.

GRANT
Man and dinosaur just weren’t meant
to co-exist.

RAVEN
I’m tired.

MAX
Me too.

The group turn from the T-rex. They walk away from the
stadium, out onto the street. Their feet splash in the water.

EXT. HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD - NIGHT

As the group walks onto the boulevard they see it is


completely ravaged, the place filled with a variety of
dinosaurs, terrorizing the remaining people.
91.

ELLIE
Alan?

Grant squints. He sees an approaching tidal wave.

GRANT
Run...

EXT. GALLERY TOWER - FRONT - NIGHT

Grant leads the gang and takes them over to a tower that
looks like a pagoda -- an art gallery. He kicks in the glass
door and the group runs inside.

They run up the spiralling stairs as the tidal wave crashes


and the water follows them from behind, getting higher and
higher. Not only that but there are also little fish
creatures trailing at their heels, snapping like Piranha.
Saurichthys.

As they run, Raven trips and falls. Grant picks her up and
carries her in her arms. They get higher up the stairs.

EXT. GALLERY TOWER - ROOFTOP - NIGHT

The group gets to the flat rooftop. They stand and watch as
the water sweeps away the dinosaurs, once again making them
extinct.

A raptor snaps its jaws as it passes by.

A BIG BOAT comes down the water. It stops by the Gallery


Tower, with Hammond at its helm. He waves and smiles in his
classic white suit.

HAMMOND
Dr. Grant!

INT. BIG BOAT - DAY

Max is resting on a couch, between Sasha and Raven. Ellie is


sitting on a wooden chair, wistfully looking out the circular
window. Ian is wrapped in a blanket, sleeping a La-Z-Boy.

EXT. QUIET WATER - BIG BOAT - DAY

As the sunrises...
92.

Dr. Grant is alone leaning on the guardrail of the deck. As


he looks out, the door behind him opens. Hammond’s
grandchildren, Tim and Lex, slowly come out.

TIM
Dr. Grant?

They join Grant by his side.

LEX
What’re you looking at?

GRANT
(smirks)
Oh nothing really...

Pulling away from the three, we see the boat is sitting


entirely on top of water, not a building or a bump sticking
out. Further going out, the whole city is flooded. Then
further going out, the whole country...

FADE OUT.

THE END
