Jurassic World: Director Colin Trevorrow Plans Sci-Fi

Jurassic World is opening June 12, but its director, Colin Trevorrow, is already planning his next project.

It’s a move that reteams him with Spielberg, who executive produced the Universal movie through his Amblin Entertainment banner. It also reunites him with Jurassic‘s Frank Marshall, who will produce with Trevorrow and production banner Big Beach.

Plot details are being kept secret, but the project is said to have its roots in an earlier Trevorrow-Connolly project titled The Ambassador.

That project was intended to act as a follow-up to the duo’s acclaimed indie Safety Not Guaranteed and set up at Big Beach, the shingle run by Peter Saraf and Marc Turtletaub, as a low-budget sci-fi thriller.

Ambassador told of a U.N. worker in a department that was to represent humankind in the event of alien contact. The man falls in love with a mysterious woman who turns out to be an alien.

Intelligent Life marks the first project to be picked up by Michael Wright, DreamWorks’ newly appointed CEO.
