Clive Palmer wouldn’t be the first person to wish he could live in a James Cameron or Steven Spielberg flick long after the credits roll. As a billionaire businessman, however, he may be one of the few with the funds to actually make that dream a reality. The noted eccentric revealed earlier this year that he was working on a replica of the RMS Titanic, to set sail in 2016 as a floating casino, and now rumor has it he’s got his sights set on a real-life Jurassic Park.
How realistic his aspirations actually are, or whether the story’s even true, remains up for debate. But if Palmer didn’t have plans before, perhaps he should pursue them now that the idea’s been floated. Sure, it seems like a really extravagant way of courting death — but again, this is the same guy who wanted a do-over on the Titanic. More details after the jump.
