JP Database brings us this article about the current status of JP4. The latest news from Universal is that Joe Johnston will definitely not be directing the four adventure, and Steven Speilberg probably won't eiether. However, Speilberg is the master behind the fabulous story Sam Neil has been talking about, so we can certainly expect something good! Remember, the film is still in very preliminary stages, so don't take any of this information as more than a rumor right now.
