STAR WARS: EPISODE IX: JURASSIC WORLD's Colin Trevorrow Confirmed To Direct
Variety is reporting that Jurassic World's Colin Trevorrow will direct Episode IX of the new Star Wars trilogy. The announcement was made at D23 in Anaheim today. 

"Colin is someone I've been interested in working with ever since I saw 'Safety Not Guaranteed,'" Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said. "The power of that film paired with the enormous success of 'Jurassic World' speaks volumes about his abilities both as a storyteller and skilled filmmaker. We are thrilled to have such an incredible talent as Colin join our family and step into the Star Wars universe."

Trevorrow added, "This is not a job or an assignment. It is a seat at a campfire, surrounded by an extraordinary group of storytellers, filmmakers, artists and craftspeople. We've been charged with telling new stories for a younger generation because they deserve what we all had--a mythology to call their own. We will do this by channeling something George Lucas instilled in all of us: boundless creativity, pure invention and hope."

In the 30's we had the likes of George Cukor, James Whale and William Wellman. The 40's saw John Ford, Howard Hawks and Michael Powell. The 50's had Nicholas Ray, Anthony Mann and Sam Fuller. The 60's had Leone, Arthur Penn, John Frankenheimer, in the 70's there was Coppola, Spielberg, Scorcese, etc......today we have Colin Trevorrow....I am officially depressed.

Compared to the past directors, these all pretty lame. We live in a wasteland today.

They say opinions are like assholes. I say yours is an especially crusty one.
