Colin Trevorrow Discusses The Possibility Of Directing A Star Wars Film

By: Benjamin Hart

Colin Trevorrow is a rising star in Hollywood, having directed the 2012 hit Safety Not Guaranteed and this year's Jurassic World, due for release on Friday. In a recent interview with MTV's Josh Horowitz to promote Jurassic World, Trevorrow was asked if he would be interested in taking on a Star Wars film, and what type of film he'd want. He explains that as a Star Wars fan himself he is most interested to see the continuation of the numbered chapters of the Saga, especially Rian Johnson's Episode VIII. On the question, Trevorrow didn't say no to the prospect of joining the Saga, but said at the moment he wants to "define himself" as a filmmaker through other, more original projects. You can watch the full conversation below:

  1. The real question here is are "up and coming" or "rising star" directors getting scared away from Star Wars based on the Trank fiasco? Taking on beloved IPs can definitely be a risk this day and age where no one hesitates to take to the internet and social media to ooze negativity about things that aren't even released yet, and Star Wars is about as beloved an IP as there is...hopefully Star Wars doesn't become "The Scottish Play" of the modern era...

  2. I want to see him direct the Star Wars movie that never gets made.

  3. I haven't seen anything else he's made and so can't comment until after seeing Jurassic World...good for him not immediately jumping from one franchise into another. And blivengo that's a good question, worthy of discussion.
