Star Wars: Episode 9 has a huge job ahead of it. Picking up the pieces that Star Wars: The Last Jedi left behind is a daunting task for any filmmaker, and for a little while, Colin Trevorrow carried the burden. But for reasons unknown, Trevorrow was dropped from the project after several years of working on the script.

Jurassic World 3

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is one of several blockbuster sequels that will arrive in the summer of 2018, and it also appears to be the one which feels the most unnecessary. The first trailer for the sequel arrived earlier this month, and the reaction was less than stellar.

But that’s not the case, according to writer and producer Colin Trevorrow.

After directing Jurassic World, Colin Trevorrow is letting The Impossible helmer J.A. Bayona get behind the camera. But Trevorrow is still responsible for the script along with frequent collaborator Derek Connolly, so he has plenty of insight into what fans can expect from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and he says that this isn’t just a retread of The Lost World. Furthermore, it will also set up what’s to come in Jurassic World 3. Read More »

Why Colin Trevorrow Left Star Wars

Earlier this week, we found out that Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow will no longer direct the third installment in the latest Star Wars trilogy, and now stories are coming out that purports to explain why he and Lucasfilm parted ways.

You just might not know it yet.
