What's after Cowboys and Aliens? How about Dinosaurs vs. Aliens?

If you asked every 12-year-old kid what they'd make a movie about, they would almost definitely answer with either "aliens" or "dinosaurs." But the really clever ones? The overzealous, crazy few? They'd make a movie featuring both.

It seems Barry (Men in Black) Sonnenfeld's inner child falls under that category, because that's exactly what he plans to do.

The question is, who would win that fight? The answer is going to come from popular comic-book writer Grant Morrison, who will be writing both the graphic novel and the screenplay for the epic. The title, Dominion: Dinosaurs Versus Aliens, doesn't give much away, but we do know it will involve a race of prehistoric beasties who are far more intelligent than our paleontologists ever suspected.

As exciting as this concept is, we're torn. Yes, it's a fantasy come to Technicolor life. Yes, it will probably make loads of box-office cash. Can it actually work, though? Is there a way to make superintelligent dinosaurs fighting creatures from the deep vacuum of space into anything that isn't hopelessly silly and overly convoluted? Where's the human element? Since it's Grant Morrison, though—who already nailed humanizing animals with We3—we're giving him the benefit of the doubt.

As Sonnenfeld, Morrison and the gang at Liquid Comics begin amping up to make this dream into a reality, how do you think they should proceed? What's the best way to bring the ultimate childhood fantasy into reality?
