Recently Fired From "Star Wars: Episode IX," Director Collin Trevorrow Will Direct "Jurassic World III"

Colin Trevorrow Jurassic World 3

Colin Trevorrow was coming off his own worst nightmare: "The Book of Henry." A sentimental, misguided, confused and jumbled mess of a movie. A horrid mix of genres that never added up. I warned "Star Wars" fans to buckle their seat belts because there would be no end to the disruptors claiming that Trevorrow was not suited for Episode IX's director chair. 

Well, soon after, Disney fired the poor guy, when, In all honesty, the mouse house could have probably made any sub-par filmmaker look competent enough, although I'm not saying Trevorrow is incompetent by any stretch of the imagination. The "Star Wars" movies are, after all, creatively controlled by the studio so the creative scope is very limited in how Colin could have frankly fucked this up. We do know he was on a tight leash so the news wasn't unexpected. What was more interesting was whether or not the director would come back to helm "Jurassic World 3," since he turned down the second chapter to make the "Star Wars" movie. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, Steven Spielberg has confirmed Trevorrow will direct the third chapter, which resulted in Trevorrow releasing a statement:

“It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive,” Trevorrow said in a statement to EW. “I’m thrilled with the tension and beauty J.A. has brought to ‘Fallen Kingdom,’ and I know Emily will add another layer of emotion to the concluding chapter of our trilogy.”
