I had a feeling that once they didn’t get this one moving after the third one came out, back in 2001, that it probably was never going to happen. Also, what with writer/creator Michael Crichton having passed away along with special effects/make-up artist Stan Winston also passing away last year, both of which worked on the Jurassic project, I didn’t see this one coming through at all.

You kids can stop crafting those mock â€œJurassic Park 4â€ posters in PhotoShop â€“ because the film is unlikely to ever happen, thus, there wonâ€™t be any fansites wanting your rapidly-produced homemade one sheets.
Producer Frank Marshall tells io9 that the once-as-good-as-greenlit fourth installment has been put on the back-burner, adding that itâ€™s a â€œlong-shotâ€ in terms of it ever happening.
More likely to come to fruition is Marshallâ€™s remake of Wolfgang Petersonâ€™s â€œNeverEnding Storyâ€.
