Billionaire Mark Cuban has big plans for the Texas ghost town he bought in December. The Dallas Mavericks owner said recently that he wants to turn Mustang, Texas, into a real-life Jurassic Park, according to My San Antonio.

“The idea came after he invested in Dino Don from ‘Shark Tank.’ Dino Don is a robotic, life-sized dinosaur business,” the article noted.

When sharing his dream with actress Drew Barrymore on her talk show, “The Drew Barrymore Show,” Cuban admitted that the odds were stacked against his plan. But he said it would be a great way to take advantage of Dino Don’s unique skills.

“We haven’t worked through it yet, but there’s a chance we might change Mustang, Texas, to Dinosaur, Texas,” he said.
