Writer/director Colin Trevorrow has had a meteoric rise as a filmmaker, making the critically acclaimed sci-fi dramedy Safety Not Graduated and his first blockbuster Jurassic World has already grossed $1.4 Billion worldwide. Trevorrow is not returning for the Jurassic World sequel and Heroic Hollywood now reports he has found his next gig, Star Wars: Episode IX.
Heroic Hollywood’s Editor-In-Chief Umberto Gonzalez confirmed the news with colleagues at Slash Films and Hitfix and it is suspected that Trevorrow will be revealed at Star Wars‘ panel at Comic-Con later today.
The Star Wars series has already gained some big name directors for the series, J.J. Abrams has directed Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens and Looper‘s Rian Johnson is set to direct Star War Episode VIII. Monsters and Godzilla‘s Gareth Edwards is directing the Boba Fett spin-off Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One and The Lego Movie duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have recently been signed up to direct a Hans Solo spin-off.
Jurassic World received a mix critical reception: some critics seeing it as the best movie in the series since the first movie and other finding it to be a shallow rehash of Jurassic Park. Despite this, the movie has been a crowd pleaser and the action and special effects were of the highest order. Trevorrow was linked to direct Star Wars: Episode VII before J.J. Abrams was hired.
Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens will hit theaters later this year on December 18 and Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One and Star Wars: Episode VIII are set to be released in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
