"Prison" Star to Get "Primeval" with Giant Reptiles

by | February 28, 2006 | Comments

"Prison Break’s" Dominic Purcell has been tapped to star in a new monster movie called "Primeval." It’s a giant-croc chiller from a first-time feature director and the scribes who gave you "Terminator 3."

Says The Hollywood Reporter: "Dominic Purcell is set to star in "Primeval," a killer-crocodile thriller that would serve as the feature debut of veteran television director Michael Katleman for Touchstone Pictures. Orlando Jones also has signed on to the movie, which is being produced by Gavin Polone and his Pariah shingle. The high-stakes adventure follows a news producer, reporter and cameraman who are dispatched to South Africa to track down and bring home alive a legendary 25-foot crocodile known as Gustave. However, their quarry proves far more elusive and deadly than they anticipated, and their situation turns even more perilous when a feared warlord targets them for death. Purcell plays the producer, while Jones portrays the cameraman. Scribe duo John Brancato and Michael Ferris ("The Game," "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines") wrote the screenplay, which is inspired by a man-eating crocodile in Africa."

This project is not to be confused with "Rogue," which is another flick about a big, hungry reptile coming from "Wolf Creek" director Greg McLean. That one stars Michael Vartan & Radha Mitchell, and is presently penciled in for a Dec ’06 release date.
