SOUND OF THUNDER STORYLINE
Sci Fi Wire reports that Crusader Entertainment has posted the storyline for A SOUND OF THUNDER, its sci-fi thriller that Warner Bros. will release August 20. Taking only the basic idea from Ray Bradbury?s classic short story of the same title, the script by Joshua Oppenheimer, Thomas Dean Donnelly and Greg Poirier begins with a time-travel expedition to the past that allows billionaires to hunt prehistoric creatures. One such trip goes awry, and when the group returns to the present, they find a ?time wave? overwhelming New York City, causing people and buildings to disappear and the city to be overrun by strange plant life, swarms of insects and hungry new species. The scientist behind the prehistoric hunts now must team with the inventor of the time-travel technology to set things right in the past before humankind?s present is destroyed. Peter (THE RELIC) Hyams directed, with Edward Burns, Catherine McCormack and Ben Kingsley starring.
