It’s Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow. An odd, some might say inspired, choice, but it certainly does better than going to the well of action stalwarts like Joe Johnston, Joe Dante, or Roland Emmerich. Or Peter Berg. He’s stunk up the joint recently, too.
This news comes after he was rumored to be a candidate for the next Star Wars, until J.J. Abrams slid into the spot. Considering the film is set to be released in June of ’14, it’s about damn time they announced a director. Those dinosaurs are notoriously hard to work with, unless they have a strong figure to direct them.
Let’s hope that this film, with Trevorrow attached, goes as far in the direction of “intellectual” as the third one did in the direction of “duhhhhhhhhhhh.”
