Jeff Goldblum has gone back, so has Sam Neill. Now it looks like it’s Laura Dern’s turn to return to Jurassic Park. Dern, who played botanist Ellie Sattler in the original 1993 flick, recently told that she has been in talks with some of the important people in the world of Jurassic Park and that it looks like a fourth film is definitely on.

Dern doesn’t get specific in the interview, but she hints strongly enough about just who she’s talked to. ”a certain fellow is the one that called me, says Dern, ”it’s hard to say no to him cause he’s always got something totally genius up his sleeve so we’ll see what they have in mind.” Hmmm… totally genius, certain fellow. Anyone else want to guess his name rhymes with “stealberg”?

Dern has no idea who else will be back for the third sequel. She tells the site she had just spoken to Sam Neill, who played her romantic partner in the first movie, but neither discussed the sequel. ”…we didn’t speak about that. It’s always an awkward thing because sometimes one person is in it and another person isn’t and who knows who is going to do it or not do it. So it’s the unspoken dinosaur date. Some places are interpreting that to say that Neill won’t be returning, but it seems to me that she just doesn’t know whether he’ll be back and, if he is, he doesn’t know that she’s been talking about it either.

Collider has the interview in its entirety, although most of it is about the film she’s currently promoting, Year of the Dog.

The last talk we heard about a possible Jurassic Park IV hinted that the movie would be aiming for a 2008 release. However, we’re almost halfway through 2007 and no news on casting or even production locations. Considering the amount of scheduling and special effects that have to go into a film like this, I’d be surprised if we saw results before 2009, especially if Spielberg really is involved. He’s not the type to grind out a movie just to hit a release date, especially if he has something genius up his sleeve.
