Colin Trevorrow might have lost out on the chance to direct a Star Wars film when he departed Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Episode IX, J.J. Abram replacing him as director, but he’s back to working on another blockbuster franchise.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Trevorrow has been tapped as the director for Universal Picture’s Jurassic World 3 and is currently at work on a script for the film with Pacific Rim: Uprising writer Emily Carmichael. Trevorrow previously was the director of the first Jurassic World back in 2015 and served as an executive producer on the upcoming sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom which is directed by J.A. Bayona.
Universal has already secured a June 11, 2021 release date for the third film in the Jurassic World series, the sixth Jurassic Park related film overall. Since the second film has yet to come out, there is no word if stars Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Prall will return for the next film in the series.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom arrives in theaters on June 22.
