"Apocalypto" meets "Jurassic Park"!

From the success of the recent Jurassic films and their many lesser imitators, it seems that the public never grows tired of dinosaurs!

Set in the days just before the arrival of the White Man, this is the story of a great hunter and warrior, Ngomo Malumba, who heroically leads his people in battle against Africa's legendary monsters that according to myth live among its vast uncharted mountains, swamps and rainforests.

"Thunder Lizards of the Bakongo" is a high octane actioner set against the unforgettable beauty of Africa's wilderness. When a distant natural disaster causes monsters to invade the village of Numbani just as Ngomo weds lovely Iola, he and his courageous fighters face the fearsome adversaries virtually hand-to-hand, without access to gunpowder, lasers or mechanical weapons of war.

An unusual but heroic story with significant franchise and alternate media (ie. graphic novel) potential.
