Although "Jurassic World" doesn't open in the United States until next week, it's a foregone conclusion that, barring some Indominus rex-sized catastrophe, Universal Pictures will have a sequel in development before it finishes counting weekend receipts (which may take a while, considering it's on track to debut north of $100 million). However, director Colin Trevorrow has already made it clear he won't be behind the camera of the next installment.
“'Jurassic Park' is like 'Star Wars.' Different directors can give a different taste to each movie,” he told BadTaste at the Paris premiere. “I would be involved in some way, but not as director.”
Presumably that involvement would be as an executive producer, helping to guide the revived franchise. Of course, if "Jurassic World" performs as well as expected, Universal may do its best to put Trevorrow back in the director's chair.
Opening June 12, "Jurassic World" stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, BD Wong, Irrfan Khan, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins.
