Barry Sonnenfeld directing Dominion Dinosaurs Vs Aliens

Grant Morrison writing the graphic novel

dinosaurs vs aliens

Director Barry Sonnenfeld and comics writer Grant Morrison are joining forces on a new project called Dominion: Dinosaurs Vs Aliens.

Set on a prehistoric Earth, the plot follows the battle between invading aliens and super-intelligent dinosaurs who fight for their turf. Considering dinosaurs are extinct, it's not hard to guess who wins.

Sonnenfeld will helm the movie version of the story, while Morrison will write the screenplay and accompanying graphic novel.

It’s an out-there premise to challenge even Cowboys & Aliens for nutso battles, and would probably be better suited to a five-minute short.

But with Morrison scripting, Dinosaurs Vs Aliens could wind up being a heck of a thrill-ride. We just hope the duo are brave enough to keep the entire movie dialogue free.

Sonnenfeld is currently shooting Men In Black III, which opens May 2012.

Awesome? Or awful? Do you want to see a dinosaur-alien smackdown? Or is that more of a YouTube thing? Talk to us below...

      Intresting combo is all I can say. I love Morrison and have been waiting a while for his special breed of insanity to make it to the big screen but considering Sonnenfield's track record I reckon this could easily be watered down into usual summer blockbuster sillieness... what am I talking about. It's a film about dinosaurs fighting aliens- how can it not be cool!
