New Park Life additions

Spielbergfilms, the ever wonderful news spot that has helped us in keeping up-to-date on new Spielberg-related news in to the regards of Jurassic Park frachise, has a wonderful news item for us today. The site reports today that Amblin Entertainment has denied the rumors that Jurassic Park IV is in the process of casting and therefore shattering the rumors that have been circulating of an early release and denying everything from a finished script to location scouting in Hawaii already occurring.
Over at Bloody-Disgusting they have reported this weekend that casting has supposedly began for the fourth entry into the franchise.
...Universal Pictures has officially begun casting for Jurassic Park IV, which will film in Kauai, Hawaii later this year! Laura Dern confirmed her return to the franchise as Dr. Ellie Sattler here as Sam Neill will NOT return.
The good news obviously being that JP4 is supposedly under way. This is very well false because there has been no official press-release on Jurassic Park IV yet and it has been officially confirmed by Frank Marshall in the past that JP4 activity will not commence until after Indiana Jones IV (source).
If this was true, some may think that Sam Neill not being back is bad news, but in fact this isn't even the tip of iceberg as words alone cannot describe the next portion of this article.
...the film is about the government who has trained dinosaurs to carry weapons and use them for battle purposes.
You can read the full article here. This news is likely to be false, as this rumor has been around for several years now due to Sayles and Monahan script that was reviewed at AICN. The truth of the matter the older script is being spun with a new rumor to make it seem as if they are going with this horrid idea for a fourth film. We can only believe this is fake. Rumors - such as these - tend to get rehashed (in different ways) every few months in the case of nothing new in the way of news to report.
