Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. has purchased the screen rights to “Primeval.”

In the series, ferocious prehistoric and futuristic creatures appear through wormhole time portals, and a covert team headed by an evolutionary scientist tries to close the doors and quietly thwart the creatures.

The show, which I’ve enjoyed through internet downloads for a couple years and now again in reruns on Scifi and new episodes on BBC America, has a ridiculous concept that is backed up by a stellar cast and remarkable writing to make for an awesome adventure of a show.

“There is a solid mythology to the series, but the movie has the dinosaur element of ‘Jurassic Park’ and the time travel element of ‘Lost,’ and it just feels like the kind of big movie that Warner Bros. does well,” Foster said.
