New Morrison theropod?

Yesterday Headline News ran a short spot on a medium-size (18 feet long, 500
lbs) theropod ("meat-eating dinosaur") being excavated in Utah. It was
featured as a "species new to science." Among the people working on the
skeleton, which was largely still in situ and stated to be "nearly complete,"
was Dave Gillette. They estimated it would take a year or so to completely
excavate it. Anybody know anything more about this find? Why wouldn't it be,
for example, _Marshosaurus_, _Stokesosaurus_, or _Coelurus_?
