How does Laura Dern feel about possibly returning to Jurassic Park 4?

02.26.2013by:

Even though Kathleen Kennedy left "dinosaurs for Tie Fighters" the JURASSIC PARK 4 train keeps on moving. Steven Spielberg is still producing, and Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES) are attached as the scribes.

When it comes to plot, we still don't have anything. We are also left to speculate who will be cast in this thing, or if any cast members of the past films will be signing on. IFC recently spoke with Laura Dern who played Dr. Ellie Sattler. Does she know if her character will return?

“I know a little and it’s been ever-changing. It’s been evolving for many years as Steven has been considering it so that’s all I can say right now. But very excited about the original ‘Jurassic Park’ coming out in 3D this summer. I’m going to see it soon, which will be very interesting.”

Fair enough. But can she tell us anything about the movie? Details, please:

“Oh, I don’t know. We’ll see what they do. Right now we’re just focused on our party of this summer."

Extra Tidbit: Would you like to see the return of previous cast members? Or would a new cast suit you?

Vince Voughn

I hope you find out Vince Voughn didn't die, and that the dinosaurs cross bred with him to make fast talkin, wise crackin dinosaurs. Like that T.V. show.

All of them back yes please

Maybe make it some sort of survival game like hard target and predators. A bunch of millionaires who kidnap every expert on dinosaurs and put in a bunch of marines, then bet on who gets out alive,

Either way they have to be kidnapped or forced to go back because its very hard to believe they'll volunteer again.

what does she mean "our party of this summer?"

Being that she said she knows a little makes me believe her character is in it, otherwise why would she know anything about it. I would love to see the entire cast from all three films come back.

All those thumbs down I got just proves that most people would prefer another stupid Transformers movie over a high quality Jurassic Park movie. You idiots just want to keep eating the same stale recycled shit over and over. You don't care about credibility or integrity. Yeah, let's just bring the whole cast back. Let's demonstrate that the characters don't learn from the past, and keep coming back to high five the dinosaurs. Why don't we throw in a musical number while we're at it.

If you take away any character from the previous movies then why call it Jurrassic Park 4. Doesnt matter if the characters are stupid and get put in the wrong situations if the story works it works and no one prefers transformers style movie thats a stupid statment when transformers is the same movie over and over because micheal bay sucks as a director. You my friend are an idiot. Its about the story not the characters.

Richard Attenborough

I think it'd be wonderful if Neil, Goldblum, Dern, and others return, but I'd almost be more excited for the return of Mr. John Hammond, himself!

Jeff Goldblum

I want Goldblum back. I'm indifferent to the others. Always Goldblum, though.

JP for Life!

I saw JP when I was a kid a fell in love. JP will always be ingrained in a part of me as helping me grow up as a kid. I can't wait for JP 3D. I really do hope Speilberg and who ever directs JP4 can find a way to bring this film to be what part 2 and part 3 should have been. I love all the films mainly the first one. I hope JP4 turns out phenomenal and can recapture the excitement I had when I saw the first movie and the immediate love I had for the movie along with those awesome characters.

It could just be called JP4 or Jurassic Park : Redemption.

You know what? Jurassic Park could use "The Fast & The Furious" style revamp. Get the previous casts back and let them have good time.

To make Jurassic Park 4 amazing all they have to do is a have a good story and bring back Neill, Goldblum, and Dern. I would even like to see Julianne Moore come back and Vince Vaughn!

It's one of these movies where I think everyone would be game to come back. And would be excited to come back.

I don't want to see anyone from the original cast. It cheapens the plot. It's really hard to believe somebody from the original cast of characters would be stupid enough to return to one of the islands unless it was a matter of life and death like in The Lost World. And I don't want to see the dinosaurs escaping the island again, because that would also cheapen the plot. There just really isn't any good way to approach a new JP movie, which is why I'm not rooting for it.

Getting all the mains to return would be great but I hope its not at the expense of a good story. They would need something to contribute not just their backstory of their survival in the previous films. But seeing Neill, Goldblum, Dern, Moore, and even Nivola would be a treat for the fans. Wonder who would direct though...

you bring back Sam Neill, Dern, Goldblum, with one more well known actor and make Jurassic Park 4, the final chapter with a good story.

anomaly7, agreed

I thought it was kinda of a bummer that Grant and Sattler went their own ways. It would be great to see Neill and Goldblum together again as well. I'm kinda sensing a 'Fast and Furious' vibe here, about getting characters from the sequels back and setting up and ultimate expedition team. That would be pretty cool. It really sad about the passing of Pete Postlethwaite. I would have loved to see Roland Tembo come back.

I too would have loved for Roland to show up in a sequel. I had his action figure as a kid. But I'd rather they leave him out than recast him.

Sam Neill needs to return as Alan Grant hands down. Grant needs to be John McClain where McClain gets stuck always in situations with terrorist Grant needs to always get stuck in sutuations involving dinosaurs no matter what happens just his days get ruined with dinosaurs.

I'd love to see Neill and Goldblum back, as well as Dern. I also wouldn't mind a few actors from the sequels showing up (Julianne Moore and Alessandro Nivola for example).
Also, am I the only one who thought that the most disappointing aspect of Jurassic Park 3 is finding out Dr. Grant didn't end up with Dr. Sattler?
