Colin Trevorrow Rules Out Directing JURASSIC WORLD Sequel


While there hasn’t been any word as to how well he did on the job, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has already ruled out returning to oversee a followup film.

As Trevorrow hits the promotional rounds for the upcoming film, he told (via Coming Soon) –

Jurassic Park is like Star Wars. Different directors can give a different taste to each movie. I would be involved in some way, but not as director.

Currently Jurassic World is tracking for an opening weekend of over $100 million, so something would need to go seriously wrong for the film not to make enough money for Universal to pass on the idea of a sequel.

While I am looking forward to seeing what Trevorrow has done to relaunch the dinosaurs-run-amuck franchise, based on the strength of his 2012 film Safety Not Guaranteed, I would like to see him working on some more character-oriented science-fiction films. Trevorrow hasn’t announced what his next project will be and I bet that he has his choice of material being offered him, so it will be interesting to see in which direction he chooses to go.

Jurassic World opens June 12.
