One of the most long-awaited sequels has finally landed a director. Signed on to Jurassic Park 4 is... Colin Trevorrow.
Never hear of him? That's fair. He is a relative newbie to Hollywood. His feature directorial debut came only last year, with indie flick Safety Not Guaranteed. Besides that, he has a doctumentary (Reality Show) and a writing credit (Making Revolution) to his resume.
This could be very good for Jurassic Park 4... or very, very bad. On the one hand, a green director means that he doesn't come with any baggage, any bad habits, or any expectations. On the other hand, can someone with so little experience handle such a massive undertaking - in 3D, no less?
Trevorrow will work off a script from Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who wrote Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Steven Spielberg, who directed the first two Jurassic Park films, will executive produce the newest addition to the franchise.
