Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic Park 4
With just the charming time-travel drama “Safety Not Guaranteed” under his feature belt director Colin Trevorrow initially scanned as a curious choice to helm the new installment of the dormant “Jurassic Park” franchise. Would the massive step up in scale and stakes for “Jurassic World” prove to hit the same atmosphere and excitement of Steven Spielberg’s 1994 original? More than a year stands before we get the final answer, but for now new details have promised he’s aiming for a classic old-school approach.

When we last heard about "Jurassic Park IV," it was back in May, when pre-production was temporarily suspended, or at least reorganized, so the creative team could get a better grasp on the material. The summer 2014 release date, everyone agreed, wasn't feasible. But until then, there wasn't much in the way of news about the project. Until last night, when Universal announced that "Jurassic Park IV" will now be called "Jurassic World" and will open on June 12, 2015. Oh and it's going to be in 3D. Because that's still a thing, apparently.

Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic Park 4
Last night, the Twittersphere had a minor eruption when word began circulating that "Jurassic Park IV" might possibly be canceled. Bot the film’s Digital Asset Manager Todd Smoyer and Concept Artist Dean Sherriff sent out (since deleted) tweets (view them via /Film) indicating that the movie was "on hold" or possibly worse. Well, the good news is that it hasn't been canceled, but there does seem to be some minor turmoil behind-the-scenes.

It seems pretty cute to think about the time when "Safety Not Guaranteed" helmer Colin Trevorrow was rumored to direct "Star Wars: Episode 7," but another mammoth sequel is now in his lap, with fanboy expectations that will certainly be very high.

While the rumors pointed to involvement in "Star Wars 7," it looks like many folks misread the tea leaves for Colin Trevorrow. While an interview from this summer where he talked about tackling a grand "mythology" seemed to give currency that he was taking on George Lucas' franchise, in recent weeks Trevorrow has been trying to distance himself from the hotly buzzed new trilogy, before telling THR outright: "It’s not going to be me for Episode VII, and I can’t believe I’ve actually had to come out and say that." However, he is taking a Disney project that is certainly beloved by many of certain age.

The "Star Wars" rumor mill keeps ticking along, and while we still don't know who's directing that first new movie, Episode VII, it seems that Disney and new Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy are already start to think of the future. After all, they allegedly have outlines for a new trilogy of films from George Lucas, which has been expanded into treatments by "Toy Story 3" writer Michael Arndt, who's also penning Episode VII. And while that film is still at least three years away, it looks like we might have writers for further installments, and at least one of them will make fans very, very happy.

"Star Wars" can sadly bring out the worst in people. The rumor mill has been foaming like a rabid dog this week – the obsessed fanbase so eager and desperate for details they will take the tiniest of morsels of information and eviscerate, expound, exaggerate and speculate over them endlessly and relentlessly for anything resembling a clue. Even as one fire or two has been quelled, a few more nuggets have been dropped that have started a near-feeding frenzy of rumor and 2+2=5 conjecture.
