The hypothetical creatures of the far future are on their way to theaters.

A few years back, Animal Planet ran a clairvoyant documentary series called "The Future is Wild", which combined science and imagination to speculate and visualize how our planet and its denizens might look in several million years (hint: not a human to be found).

Now they're planning to give that extrapolation a bigger budget and a bigger screen, courtesy of Warner Bros. and SHREK producer John Williams. They'll use use live-action, animation and animatronics to bring their possible future to life.

The series featured freaky theoretical organisms like the Cryptile, Rattleback, Snowstalker, Roachcutter, Ocean Phantom, Gloomworm, Slithersucker, Megasquid and the dreaded Sharkopath.

I really enjoyed that TV series. Vaguely scientific but mostly just entertaining in a "what if...?" kinda way. The episode with the forest full of creatures that evolved from squid was excellent.
I'm sure they did a lot of research for it, but it came across more as entertainment for me. Plus, one of the 'scientists' uses the word "unpossible" at one point. A film related to this would definitely be an entertaining watch.
Also the book/series 'The World Without Us' would work for the bigger

Also the book/series 'The World Without Us' would work for the bigger budget treatment too. That's the one where they discuss what would happen to the Earth and all our achievements if humanity just disappeared tomorrow.

Sounds like an IMAX feature. Hopefully they try a little harder on the names. Sharkopath? Really?
