With the Chris Pratt led Jurassic World set to make a ton of money no matter how pessimistic Ryan might be, its director has already landed his next big (geeky) picture! Colin Trevorrow, previously of the excellent indie scifi dramedy Safety Not Guaranteed, has signed on to direct a mysterious scifi project.
With Jurassic World opening June 12, the dinosaur extravaganza’s filmmaker Colin Trevorrow is already dreaming up his next project.
DreamWorks has picked up Intelligent Life, a sci-fi thriller that Trevorrow wrote with his Jurassic collaborator Derek Connolly, with Trevorrow attached to direct.
It’s a move that reteams him with Steven Spielberg, who executive produced the Universal movie through his Amblin Entertainment banner. It also reunites him with Jurassic‘s Frank Marshall, who will produce with Trevorrow and production banner Big Beach. Connolly is executive producing.
Plot details are being kept secret, but the project is said to have its roots in an earlier Trevorrow-Connolly project titled The Ambassador.
This deal actually gives me hope that Spielberg and company are confident enough in Jurassic World that they wanted to double down in the genre with the same team. You usually don’t keep the band together if the music stinks!
