She revealed that she had received a phone call from Steven Spielberg "I'm told its (Jurassic Park IV) happening and I'm told they're calling me. I'm told that Ellie Sattler is involved in it. "
When asked if she was interested in reprising her role, she said "Well a certain fellow is the one that called me and 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. But I don't know anything about it at this point."
Dern said that she thinks the next Jurassic Park film would shoot within the year and that the studio would want to release it in 2008.
