Jurassic Park IV casting update

And the update is... there is none, nor has there ever been. Jurassic IV has been "in the works" for years now, and while there have been rumors of Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neill and Laura Dern signing on, those rumors are apparently not true according to

The fan site reported this:

Steven Spielberg's personal reps at Amblin Entertainment (co-producers of the Jurassic Park franchise) have told that casting has not commenced on the film, as the story and screenplay are still in development. While there's been talk over the years with series stars Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and most recently, Laura Dern, the property is still not ready to move forward toward production and no casting is taking place.

Personally, I'd like them to crush this project once and for all. The Lost World wasn't great but entertaining, but Jurassic Park III was just an embarrassment a hundred times over. Why they would continue to ruin a good product by milking this cash cow is a real shame.
