Colin Trevorrow - Colin Trevorrow to direct Star Wars: Episode VII?
Colin Trevorrow has sparked rumours he could be directing 'Star Wars: Episode VII' after admitting his new project has a massive fan base.
Colin Trevorrow is reportedly in talks to direct 'Star Wars: Episode VII'.
The 'Safety Not Guaranteed' director has sparked rumours he might be directing Disney's new trilogy after admitting he is set to tackle a popular film franchise and is sure to anger fans of its ''mythology'' by being entrusted with such a big responsibility.
In an interview for the MacGuffin podcast, Colin said: ''There are amazing opportunities that have arisen. One of them, I will say, will probably create a great 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 of 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.''
The filmmaker has also spoken about the possibility of helming a 'Star Wars' episode, admitting he is a true fan and would be willing to take the risk of ruining the franchise for the sake of his passion for George Lucas' original sci-fi series.
Colin mused: ''I cannot comment on what my involvement would be, but I can definitely say that I would love to direct a 'Star Wars' movie at some point in my life. It would be incredible. I will not be deterred by it.
''While I understand that every thinking director who cares about the series as much as I do, would be afraid to ruin something. But I also believe that there is a risk that many directors would gladly take, precisely because they care so much about it.''
