For years, we've been hearing talk of a resurrection of the Jurassic Park franchise at the helm of director Joe Johnston, who had said Jurassic Park IV would be his next project after Captain America: The First Avenger.

Last year Joe Johnston confirmed:

"There is going to be a 'Jurassic Park 4,'" he said. "It breaks away from the first three - it's essentially the beginning of the second 'Jurassic Park' trilogy."

But, according to MTV, the project might be dead in the water, as the network caught up with star Sam Neill who said:

"I think we've told the story. I think it's done," he said. "[Legendary effects expert] Stan Winston who made those beautiful dinosaurs died. So, no Stan, no 'Jurassic Park' really... [and author Michael Crichton died too."

Are you interested in seeing what Joe Johnston might do with Jurassic Park IV?
