‘Primeval’ Feature Film Under Development


Impossible Pictures and Warner Bros. are preparing to adapt Primeval to the big screen.

Primeval is a British sci-fi series that follows a group of scientists who track down and capture prehistoric creatures which are breaking through a rift in time to the present day.

The popular series first aired in the UK during 2007 and is now in its third season.  It was created by Tim Haines (who is well known for his creature work on BBC’s Walking with Dinosaurs) and is produced for UK’s ITV by Impossible Pictures, a production company founded by Haines and Jasper James (also of Walking with Dinosaurs fame).

It is not yet known if actors from the television series will appear in the feature film.

Work will begin on the film later this year.

In additional Primeval news, Impossible Pictures are apparently in talks to produce a version of the series specifically for a US audience.

    Ecstatic that there’s going to be two more seasons, I’ve been a fan of Brit sci-fi since I was a kid, and this is the absolute best of the lot (a US production of this show would be complete mess).

    i LOVE this show. dinosaurs+time travel=win for me
    im praying the movie at least has cameos from the original cast. their the reason the shows just works. As for the setting i hope part of it is at least in England at the ARC….

    and i agree, the us version of this show will fail.

    Love this series and glad to hear it will be continued!I could see Disney or Universal picking up the concept for a “ride”. The creatures look realistic and the actors parts have a natural flow. Highly recommend!

    My best friend and I are hooked on Primeval! After watching series one through three, we were pretty sad not to find series four on TV here in the States, and left hanging as to what would happen to Abby, and Conner when they woke up in the morning while in that tree.

    Please keep the series coming!!! It’s the best Sci-Fi story I’ve ever seen, with the exception of Jurassic Park. Albeit Jurassic Park were movies; Primeval had a new episode every week. It was something to look forward to, and talk about later.

    Please keep the same actors from the show in the movie. If you don’t the movie just won’t be the same. The actors have such a great dynamic as a group that no one else can take their place.

    Keep the episodes coming!!!!!!!
