Dern said she received a phone call from Steven Spielberg. “I’m told it’s happening and I’m told they’re calling me. I’m told that Ellie Sattler is involved in it.”
Asked if she would be interested in returning to the role, Dern said “it’s hard to say no to [Spielberg] 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 revealed that they are thinking about starting the fourth installment within the year for a possible 2008 release.
