Epic Rumor!! Colin Trevorrow To Direct 'Star Wars: Episode 9'

By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals,

Director Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World  has amassed an Epic $1.4 billion dollars at the box office and is still destroying records!  Anyone who can pull in those kind of numbers at the box office is gonna have some big studios highly interested.

Now according to reports from the scoop masters @ HeroicHollywood:

Hot off his massive success on Jurassic World , super hot director Colin Trevorrow has bagged his next gig.

Today at the Star Wars Comic Con panel, Lucasfilm will bring out Colin Trevorrow onto the stage at Hall H to announce him as the next director of Star Wars: Episode 9!

JJ Abrams directed Episode 7, Rian Johnson got Episode 8, and now Colin Trevorrow got Episode 9. The trilogy is complete.

Very interesting that Mr. Trevorrow had this to say in an interview just last month:

Yeah, I can’t say no to that idea. Look, I think you’d know I was lying if I said I would never ever do a Star Wars film. I could tell you absolutely, 100 percent for sure I’m not doing or involved in the Boba Fett one. And I’m sure they’ll find a great filmmaker to do it. And I’m so impressed with the choices they have made. And I think specifically Rian Johnson is such an awesome filmmaker. And I’m so excited to see what he does.
— Colin Trevorrow

Our other sources have no confirmation yet on if this is true, but it makes a whole lot of sense considering the circumstances, and our good friend Umberto Gonzalez at HeroicHollywood is usually spot on with these monster scoops!  Don't worry though because in just a few hours we will find out for sure if this is true or not.

Director Rian Johnson has already been confirmed to be directing and writing Star Wars: Episode 8 so Trevorrow coming on to direct Episode 9 would complete the trilogy very nicely.

Star Wars: Episode 9 is scheduled to hit theaters in 2019.

Lots more details to come on this story later today when the Star Wars panel begins in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con.
