What a fantastic year Colin Trevorrow is having. First he was up to direct the Star Wars films, and now he has officially scored one of the most anticipated blockbusters — Jurassic Park 4. Treverrow who is more familiar with directing smaller micro-budget films, such as last year’s Safety Not Guaranteed has been officially announced as the director for Jurassic Park 4.
It was only this year that Trevorrow made his debut as a director, with Safety Not Guaranteed, but apparently that was all Universal and Steven Spielberg needed to see from Colin to have faith in him.
In addition to Treverrow, Rise of The Planet Of The Apes writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver will write the script, and the mastermind behind the whole show, Steven Spielberg, is set to come on board as executive producer.
Earlier The Inquisitr’s Todd Rigney reported how this bit of information was kept in secrecacy from the media. According to a report, Trevorrow’s involvement in the new Jurassic Park 4 was such a secret, that some of the crew weren’t even aware about who would direct the newest sequal in the Jurassic Park franchise.
Many hoped that it was Spielberg, and not Trevorrow that would step up to the plate to direct Jurassic Park 4, but Spielberg told 60 minutes that he was a little tired of the whole action genre. “I knew I could do the action in my sleep at this point in my career. In my life, the action doesn’t attract me anymore.”
According to Deadline, everyone involved in the Jurassic Park 4 film sees Trevorrow as a great addition to the team:
“He met with the studio and filmmakers, and they felt he was a good match for the material, having grown up a huge fan of the trilogy and part of a new generation of directors steeped in all things dinosaur. They felt he would preserve and protect the characters in the story they created.”
Do you think Colin Trevorrow is the right man for the job for Jurassic Park 4?
