Sam Neill, who played Dr. Alan Grant in the "Jurassic Park" franchise, told LA Daily News that he is not involved in the fourth installment of the series.
It's true that the pre-historic creatures will be back onscreen once more in "Jurassic Park IV", but whether Dr. Alan Grant is also returning turns out to be still in question apparently.
Sam Neill, who played the character in "Jurassic Park" and "Jurassic Park III", recently stated to LA Daily News that he in fact is not taking any involvement in the project, adding that any reports saying about his attachment to it are false.
"I know nothing about it," he remarked. "I haven't heard from anyone."
The fourth installment of the hit franchise, the first and second being made based on the Michael Crichton novels, "Jurassic Park IV" has already had its script developed by John Sayles and "The Departed" scribe William Monahan. "Jurassic Park III" helmer Joe Johnston is attached to direct while Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Christopher James Mitchell will all produce.
