|Clerks III: The Lost World|
October 13, 2017
The journal of Maple White and his friend Veronica Loughran is recovered from Seperdouniversus (a large island off the coast of South America) features sketches of once thought to be extinct creatures called dinosaurs. This is enough proof for Professor Challenger, AKA Silent Bob and Professor Jay that dinosaurs still walk the earth. With that, Dante Hicks, Randal Graves (whom wishes to go on the expedition to impress his fiance'), "Silent Bob" Challenger, Jay & Elias, and a Brazilian servant named Zambo all leave for Seperdouniversus.
They get to the island by plane, and enter the plateau by going through the seacoast. They cut down a tree and use it as a bridge, but it is knocked over by a Carnotaurus, leaving them trapped. The explorers are shocked when they discover that a large rock has been sent their way by an ape-ma perched on top of a ledge. As the crew look up to see their attacker, Challenger spies a Quetzalcoatlus overhead and proves that the statement in Maple White and Veronica Loughran's diary is true.
The explorers witness various life-and-death struggles between the dinosaurs of Seperdouniversus. During which, an allosaurus and Tyrannosaurus pack makes its way to the camp site and attacks the exploration party. It is finally driven off by Dante Hicks, Jay, and Silent Bob who throws a burning torch into the beast's mouth. Convinced that the camp isn't safe, Dante climbs a tree to search for a new location, but is attacked by the Silverback Gorilla-like ape-man. Jay and Silent Bob succeeds in shooting the ape man, but the creature is merely wounded and escapes before they can finish him off.
The explorers then make preparations to live on the plateau potentially indefinitely. A catapult is constructed and in search for Maple White and Veronica Loughran, They are rescued. It is at this time that Dante confesses his love for Elias and the two are unofficially wed. Shortly afterwards, as the paleontologists are observing an Iguanodon, it is attacked by an Tyrannosaurs and falls of the edge of the platue, and swims ashore from the river. Soon afterwards, The Ape-Men's leader, a 25-foot tall Silverback Gorilla-like ape man named Brutus menaces a herd of ceratopsians, causing a mass stampede among the dinosaurs of Seperdouniversus.
In the end, the crew is saved when Elias' pet monkey Chico climbs a rope up the plateau and the crew climb down. As Dante makes his descent, he is again attacked by the ape-man and Brutus who pulls the rope later. The ape-man is shot and this time killed as well Lord Brutus, by Dante. The Iguanodon that was pushed off the plateau had swam ashore in the river, and Dante, Jay, "Silent Bob" Challenger, Elias and the others manages to capture it.
They also bring a Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus, Allosaurus, Ceratosaurus, Therizinosaurus, and a pack of Utahraptors back to London to be put on display. However, they escape and engage in an epic battle until it reaches the London Bridge, where Dante, Jay, and "Silent Bob" Challenger defeat the meat eaters. Jay and Silent Bob waves goodbye as the creatures leaves, whereas Dante discovers that the love he left in London has married in his absence, allowing him and Elias to be together.

Despite Tim's enthusiasm for the project, no one in the thread responded well to his idea, with TheCassidy saying "Well, that's fifteen minutes I could've spent masturbating". Not long after, the thread was closed. The project hasn't been seen since.
