Jurassic World Director Colin Trevorrow To Search For Intelligent Life

fb share tweet share

Colin TrevorrowColin Trevorrow has only directed two feature length motion pictures: 2012’s indie time travel dramedy Safety Not Guaranteed and the upcoming return to the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World. They certainly represent the opposite ends of the spectrum, production wise. One is a cute, clever sci-fi film, while the other is a massive, big-budget spectacle of the highest order. After his foray into dinosaur country, however, he’s going a wee bit smaller for his next film, Intelligent Life.

Now that Jurassic World is in post production, The Hollywood Reporter says that Trevorrow, as well as his writing partner Derek Connolly, who co-wrote both Safety and Jurassic World, are returning to the project they’ve been working on for some time.

Chris Pratt faced off with a fair number of weird ass creatures in Marvel’s space adventure Guardians of the Galaxy, which just hit Blu-ray if you’re looking for something to do tonight. Next summer, after he’s done taking care of the beasts in Pawnee, Indiana on Parks and Recreation, he’s taking on a foe that’s been extinct for millions of years. The newly minted mega star takes the lead in Jurassic World, the next film in the Jurassic Park franchise, and though we’ve seen him riding a motorcycle in the midst of a swarm of dinosaurs, it’s nowhere near as up close and personal as in this new photo from the film.

Colin Trevorrow Wants To Make The Flight Of The Navigator Remake A Heartfelt Movie

Months after the Disney/Lucasfilm merger, indie director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) was one of the top-rumored candidates to direct Star Wars: Episode VII. As it turned out, Trevorrow was busy working on another geek-favorite property: a remake of  1986’s Flight of the Navigator. But why did Trevorrow decide to make Flight of the Navigator his follow-up to Safety Not Guaranteed? He wanted to expand the themes of his debut to his sophomore effort.

“We touched it a little in Safety Not Guaranteed and I want to keep pushing in that direction,” says the 36-year-old director. In an interview with SciFiNow.com, Trevorrow and his writing partner, Derek Connolly, opened up about their new project. The pair previously worked on the screenplay for Safety Not Guaranteed, and they are taking the same approach to Flight of the Navigator. Connolly explains how the original Navigator impacted him as a child:

I acknowledge that Navigator is not a perfect film and that’s not why I loved it, it’s because when I was a kid at that particular moment that movie had a fear embedded into it, a nightmare scenario; what if everyone grew up around you and you’re still a kid and your parents are old? It’s child horror and one of five VHS tapes that I had and therefore watched a thousand times.

It looks like the short list for potential Star Wars: Episode VII directors has just gotten shorter and shorter. After weeks of rumors and speculation, director Colin Trevorrow has confirmed that he will not be directing the new Star Wars movie. He confirmed his status on the Episode VII project via Twitter.

After FilmSchoolReject.com put together a great piece suggesting that Trevorrow was a strong possibility as the new Star Wars director, the indie director tweeted to clarify and confirm that he is officially out of the running for the Episode VII job. Trevorrow tweeted, “To clarify, there is another film we all love that I’m currently trying not to mess up. Odds I will direct Episode VII: 3720 to 1.”

In an interview with The MacGuffin podcast back in June, Trevorrow teased, “his next project will involve him tackling a mythology with a substantial fan base.” He also added that, if he got said job, this ravenous fanbase would likely be angry about the selection. You can watch the video of the interview below, and skip to 21:45 for the juicy bits about the mystery project.
