That's what the current belief is at least. SpielbergFilms reports that Laura Dern is indeed interested in returning to the "island" for the fourth installment in the franchise. While promoting her new film "Inland Empire" she was asked if she would be interested in a return to the Jurassic franchise.
"I hope you guys can tell me," Dern said. "...People keep telling me I’m in 'Jurassic Park IV,' my character’s in it, I’m in it, and I haven’t gotten the call yet, but I’m very curious to hear more… You never know. It was awfully fun."
IGN then asked, "Do you want to get eaten in this one and get kinda killed off…?"
"No! The great paleobotanist can never die!"

Submit Your Art!
Date: Monday, January 1, 2007 - 0:00 AM (Eastern Time)
But while we all wait, Jurassic Park Legacy welcomes any art submissions from its members. If you would like to have your fan art displayed on JPLegacy, drop Tyrannosaur a line with your work attached to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will need the username you’d like to be credited with (alternatively you can give me your real name if you wish), and your email so that others may contact you. Optionally, if you’re into the habit of titling your work please include that, or a general description/artist note as well.
Fan art must be Jurassic Park related (please, no self-portraits) and, obviously, your own work. If you’re submitting artwork for someone else, please try to have their name and email available. Hand drawn or painted art, computer drawn art, and rendered images are all acceptable. Also, artwork should be at a PG level (no nudity or excessive gore).
