So, I think the whole Jurassic World screenwriting process went something like this:
Writer 1: I think we’ve got a really cool opportunity here to really dig into the relationship between Chris Pratt and the raptors. I mean, the raptors were really the star of the first movie and they have so much personality we could…
Writer 2: Dude. Dude, you’re overthinking this. It’s dinosaurs. Nobody cares what the actors say, they’ll be watching the dinosaurs. Cut and paste the big scenes from the first movie, make sure there are lots of dinosaurs. In between the actors can just say some random shit.
Writer 1: Dude. Are you high?
Writer 2: Yes. Yes I am.
Writer 1: Cool.
Writer 2: So like I was saying. What you’re talking about–personality, relationships, that takes work. That takes thought. And I want to hit White Castle and besides nobody’s going to be watching anything but the dinosaurs. Here, you take some pages, I’ll take some pages, we’ll write some things down and be out of here in fifteen minutes.
Writer 1: Don’t we wanna at least avoid being really sexist or racist? I hear that’s kind of a thing lately.
Writer 2: That takes work! Dinosaurs! Just write some crap down!
Writer 1: Sounds legit to me. [opens laptop, begins to type] Lorem…ipsum….dolor….
Yeah, the dinosaurs were awesome and everything, but I’d say this is one you can safely wait for it to turn up on Netflix.
