Colin Trevorrow

The upside to all of these already-flowing Star Wars VII rumors (to wit – we’re getting a new Star Wars in 2015! it will be part of a new trilogy! Matthew Vaughn could direct! Harrison Ford could come back!) is that, with Disney aiming for a summer 2015 release date, we don’t have whole years of speculation to slog through. At best, we have a few months. And, in all reality, most of this chatter could prove moot – I’d personally be shocked if Disney isn’t just messing with all of us and has already picked, at the very least, a director for this hugely profile project.

But, until then, let’s speculate! The latest piece of the Star Wars VII rumor pie comes care of Celebuzz, who are exclusively reporting that a source has informed them that Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow has “had early discussions with Lucasfilm about Episode VII.” The outlet continues that Safety “garnered him fans at Lucasfilm, one being George Lucas.” That is certainly…interesting. However, Celebuzz also reports that this Lucas/Trevorrow meet-and-greet took place months ago, though they also maintain that Trevorrow is “indeed on the list of potential names that could shepherd a new trilogy of films.”

How strange then that this is the first we’ve heard about the potential for a Trevorrow gig. The helmer didn’t even appear on our list of potential Star Wars VII directors! And yet, Trevorrow’s Safety is a lovely film, one of my favorites of the year, and he does demonstrate a sincere interest in both sci-fi flicks and relationship-driven drama. Perhaps this isn’t so off-base.
