File this under something that we’d never expect. “Safety Not Guaranteed” director Colin Trevorrow is one of the many directors who’s been linked to the upcoming Star Wars VII.
another not immediately obvious name has joined the list of potential contenders for involvement: “Safety Not Guaranteed” director Colin Trevorrow. The word comes from Celebuzz (via HeyUGuys) who say George Lucas himself was a big fan of ‘Guaranteed,’ a charming picture that married sci-fi elements with lots of humor and heart. Trevorrow and Lucas apparently met a few months ago to discuss the project, with the former apparently “on the list of potential names that could shepherd a new trilogy of films.” We reached out to the helmer about this percolating rumor, and he told us simply: “No comment.”
Not having ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’, I can’t speak to the quality of the film and direction, but I’ve heard nothing but good things. (I’m also a little sorry that I didn’t pick up on the fact that a Burlington director directed a somewhat high-profile SF film).
Undoubtably, the Seventh Star Wars film is going to attract rumors of just about every drector under the sun, not to mention actors, when the time comes. So, here’s to hoping that he’s selected for the job! (Maybe throw a couple scenes of the Green Mountains in the background somewhere?)
