Laura Dern, the actress who plays Dr. Ellie Sattler in the Jurassic Park franchise, recently talked with TV Guide Magazine about the fourth dino-entry that has been hitting some development plot holes since last summer.
“It isn’t just speculation. It’s a while away, but my understanding is it’s happening and my character is very involved. I know Steven Spielberg is looking forward to getting it together over the next year.”
The last draft of the screenplay was scrapped after the internet buzz was cynical of the plot, which features dinosaurs rocking army gear and weapons. Sam Neill will not be returning at this point.
