If you're one of those people who loathed the JW series' emphasis on militarized dinosaurs as living weapons...well...
"...I only read Rick and Amanda's script once, so I don't remember all the details of it. The lead character was a guy called Vance, who ultimately became Owen in our story. The Film opened with Vance jumping out of a helicopter with a pack of raptors on a military raid of a drug dealer's compound in Colombia. It was a different approach. But there was a character who had one or two scenes, the manager for the corporate side of the park. I think her name was Whitney. She was an antagonist to the hero, putting up red tape."
Sounds just as stupid as the Human-Dinosaur that Jurassic Park 4 would have supposedly have.
Yeah, the John Sayles script was insane. I don't dislike the militarized dinosaur subplot as much as others but I am surprised the JW series has doubled down on it as much as they have. That's one thing I don't get about movies that spend so much time in development hell, they always seem to keep the worst elements.
They had to have a new kink to the plot. Redoing the original movie alone wouldn't work. So the militarized dinosaurs is almost a logical development. Having said that, I really didn't enjoy Chris Pratt, The Velociraptor Whisperer. But then, I didn't particularly care for the movie at all.

Sayles is or was a good writer (currently reading his Piranha novel). I remember the baseball thing talked about on Aint it Cool News waaay back. And Jack Horner also spilled the beans after JP 3-saying he wouldn't be needed on the next one because it was going into sci-fi territory with human intelligent dinosaurs.
After JP 3 I thought they might have the dinosaurs migrating off the island.
It is not really a concept that has much legs. It's dinosaurs, an island, they go into a city and run around...ultimately the only thing that can be interesting are the human characters and
sorry. I know that is too much to ask for these days.
Caligula: Do you think I'm mad?...Sometimes I think that I'm going mad. Do you — be honest with me — has that thought ever crossed your mind?
Claudius: Never. Never. The idea is preposterous. You set the standard of sanity for the whole world.
