Colin Trevorrow, who directed the current mega-hit “Jurassic World,” is on board to direct a “Star Wars” movie, according to a scoop by Heroic Hollywood’s Umberto Gonzalez.
Gonzalez says Trevorrow will direct “Star Wars: Episode 9”: “From what I’m being told, Trevorrow has been in play for months for [the ‘Star Wars’ project], which is also the reason he won’t return to direct ‘Jurassic World 2.’”
Gonzalez also quotes this interesting tidbit published earlier in Slashfilm: “Producers Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall really loved working with Trevorrow. He’s a great collaborator, a filmmaker with a vision, but not one who can’t take a note. He has proven himself able to handle the stress of a big budget franchise production, so it wouldn’t surprise me if Trevorrow ended up being sought for a ‘Star Wars’ film.”
Gonzalez concludes his piece with this: “Today at the ‘Star Wars’ Comic Con panel, Lucasfilm will bring out Colin Trevorrow onto the stage at Hall H to announce him as the next director of ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’!
“JJ Abrams directed Episode 7, Rian Johnson got Episode 8, and now Colin Trevorrow got Episode 9. The trilogy is complete.”
