Jurassic Park - Early David Koepp Script June 30th, 1992
#1
Here is a never-before-seen early script draft of Jurassic Park by the film's final writer David Koepp. Previously, only the final and continuity drafts from Koepp have surfaced. This is a June 30th, 1992 draft meant for Spielberg's eyes only, and includes a number of unique versions of scenes. This includes an alternate build-up of Grant and Ellie's relationship at the dig site, altered sequence of events and famous dialogue, his version of the omitted baby Triceratops scene, and his original version of the film's thrilling climax of the raptors VS Grant and the others on a condor lift in the rotunda.

I may have missed it; what was the "bombshell"?

I was kind of joking in a way that Mr. DNA being Jamaican instead of Texan/Southern was a "bombshell", lol. It is quite a different way to imagine the character, but even more nuts was the sort of racist line Gennaro is given in response to it when he says, "Kids love Jamaicans."

Anyhow, Pages 44-54 are now revealed, which feature alternate versions of dialogue, including Arnold's famous "Hold onto your butts" line, Malcolm's explanation of chaos to Sattler, and... James Earl Jones?

Ah, I see! I think I've read that before somewhere, I wasn't too surprised by it. 

Keep up the good work!  Smile

Pages 66-76 are now revealed, which features most of the T-Rex Main Road Attack. This section is very close to the final draft's version, apart from Malcolm being flung from the Rex's mouth instead of being nudged by its head.

It is so far amazing how much actually remained intact between this early Koepp draft and his final one, but it is nice to finally see some of these small missing moments and alternate dialogue. Fear not, because in the next few reveals things will get a bit more interesting again. The payoff is in the climax. Wink
