Jurassic Park IVâ€™ not in casting process
on the â€˜Net have stated that the long-awaited, highly anticipated and hotly debated â€œJurassic Park IVâ€ is moving forward into the casting process. While this rumor has re-ignited fan interest and discussion (never a bad thing), the rumors turn out to be completely unfounded as per multiple, separate sources associated directly with the production.
Steven Spielbergâ€™s personal reps at Amblin Entertainment (co-producers of the â€œJurassic Parkâ€ franchise) have told SpielbergFilms.com
that casting has not commenced on the film, as the story and screenplay are still in development. While thereâ€™s been talk over the years with series stars Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and most recently, Laura Dern, the property is still not ready to move forward toward production and no casting is taking place.
The good news is that the film is still in development, but itâ€™s not near the point that these rumors would have it. Steven Spielberg is of course currently hard at work filming the latest chapter in his other beloved franchise, â€œIndiana Jones IV.â€ At last public comment, producer Frank Marshall said that serious attention will turn to â€œJurassic Parkâ€ as soon as Spielbergâ€™s camp has put the finishing touches on the new Indy film. Whether or not this will hold at that time remains to be seen, but for now, take heart in knowing that theyâ€™re still working on bringing â€œJurassic Park IVâ€ to eager audiences.
