Last summer, famed paleontologist Jack Horner revealed a little something about the upcoming "Jurassic World" involving a scary new dinosaur

"I can't actually tell you who that will be," Horner, serving as a consultant on the film, told USA Today. "But you'll want to keep the lights on after you see this movie."

Naturally, fans of the film franchise immediately started racking their brains and digging through paleontological texts to guess what dinosaur director Colin Trevorrow might bring back from the dead. If new rumors concerning the plot of the film are anything to go on, however, it turns out the "big bad" in "Jurassic World" never actually existed. Instead, it (and possibly other new dinos) will be the result of foolish genetic tampering by mankind. Here's a synopsis of the rumors from Joblo courtesy of io9:

"Jurassic Park is back in business, but business appears to be flagging. So someone has the fantastic idea to start mixing dinosaur DNA together to create new dinosaurs. Somehow, they end up with a tyrannosaurus rex, a velociraptor, a snake and a cuttlefish — because of its camouflage abilities — that inadvertently creates a perfect killing machine that of course gets loose and starts eating people. It's basically like evil dinosaur Predator."
The rumor goes on to state that there are now "good dinosaurs" trained by Chris Pratt's character that will step in to fight back against the Frankenstein dinos. In other words, instead of dinosaurs only chasing people, we're going to have some epic battle scenes between the terrible lizards themselves. If true, this film may inject some much-needed originality back into the franchise. 

"Jurassic World" is slated for a June 12, 2015 release.
