Did Colin Trevorrow Confirm His Involvement With STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Back In June?
While Star Wars isn't specifically mentioned, Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow revealed in an interview which has only just now surfaced that his next project will "create a good deal of ire" against him and that he loves the "mythology" as much as fans. Read on for details!
Film Stage has discovered the following interview with director Colin Trevorrow (conducted back in June) in which he describes his next project after Safety Not Guaranteed...and it sounds an awful lot like Star Wars: Episode VII! While nothing is specifically mentioned by name, the talk of drawing ire from fans and respecting mythology certainly sounds as he will be taking on a BIG franchise or well-known adaptation of some sort. However, it's worth noting that he doesn't confirm that he will helm the highly anticipated 2015 movie and instead describes it as an opportunity. This does at least confirm earlier reports about him being in the running to direct (if he is indeed discussing Star Wars). When he was recently asked about his possible involvement with the franchise, Trevorrow remained coy, so now only time will tell - an official announcement can't be too far away!
"I can’t speak with any specificity as to what the next thing will be. There are amazing opportunities that have arisen as a result of this. One of them, I will say, will probably create a good deal of ire against me on the Internet when people find out what it is. So, I just want to say in advance that I promise you, for all those who love the mythology that I will be tackling, trust that I love it as much as you do. And I will respect it, and hopefully make it not suck."
