Franchise: Jurassic Park
subdirectory_arrow_right Atari Corporation (Company)
Atari Corporation lead Larry Siegel attempted to sell main Atari CEO Jack Tramiel on the idea of making a Jurassic Park game for the unreleased Panther hardware before the book's movie adaptation even entered production. They would've also gained royalties for merchandising and the eventual movie, but Tramiel turned down the offer due to the cost being too high. Siegel claims this is how he "realized that [Atari] would never spend the money to have an anchor title."
Former video game composer Michael Giacchino had composed the music for The Lost World: Jurassic Park console game and Warpath: Jurassic Park. He would later go on to work in Hollywood and be a composer for some of the biggest franchise films and popular TV shows such as LOST and Alias. Coincidentally, one of the franchise films he would create the music for is 2015's Jurassic World, a sequel to and soft reboot of the Jurassic Park film series, as well as the film's two sequels, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Jurassic World Dominion.
