We have about 12 more days until Jurassic World hits theaters, and with all the buzz behind the movie it wouldn’t be out of the question for Universal to already be working on a sequel. With most of their focus on promoting the film, it’s possible they are biding their time to see how well the new dino flick will do on the big-screen.

Even though Universal has no plans, as-of-yet, to bring another Jurassic World movie to life, ComingSoon is reporting that Colin Trevorrow will not return to direct it:

Jurassic Park is like Star Wars. Different directors can give a different taste to each movie. I would be involved in some way, but not as director.”

Trevorrow’s involvement in another go-round would probably be in a producing capacity of some sort. It’s a bit refreshing to see the director’s openness to hand off the baton to someone else down the line. Trevorrow already has other projects lined up including The Book Of Henry and the quirky sci-fi flick Intelligent Life.

Given his mention of Star Wars, could it be possible he’ll take over that stand-alone film that Josh Trank recently abandoned? That’d be interesting.
