The Hunger Games Meets Jurassic Park in The Jurassic Games


The Hunger Games Meets Jurassic Park in The Jurassic Games

Action/horror hybrid The Jurassic Games has started production in Oklahoma

Final Destination 3 star Ryan Merriman and Perrey Reeves (Entoutrage) are set to star in director Ryan (Army of Frankensteins) Bellgardt‘s The Jurassic Games, a wild B movie hybrid of juggernaut franchises The Hunger Games and Jurassic Park.

The film imagines a world set in the near future wherein ten Death Row convicts are chosen to compete in The Jurassic Games, the ultimate virtual reality game show that pits its players against dinosaurs and each other. However, there is a catch… If you die in the virtual game, you also die in reality; and for Anthony Tucker (Adam Hampton), survival is his one chance to be reunited with his children after having been wrongfully imprisoned for the murder of his wife. As the devious The Host continues adding improbable challenges, the characters will find the odds stacked against them as only one victor can emerge as winner and reclaim their freedom.

The Jurassic Games is the third film from Emmy Award-winning director Bellgardt, whose highly-anticipated creature feature Gremlin will be released this summer. The film is the result of an association between High Octane Pictures and the Oklahoma Film + Music Office.

High Octane Pictures‘ upcoming credits include buzzed-about horror title Clowntergeist, out mid-year, and high concept science-fictioner The Answer.
