Star Wars IX Loses Director Colin Trevorrow
Lucasfilm shared an interesting bit of update for Star Wars IX, that being they are dropping director Colin Trevorrow.
Here’s the official statement from StarWars.com
Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX. Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process but we have all come to the conclusion that our visions for the project differ. We wish Colin the best and will be sharing more information about the film soon.
They never implicitly state the reason from the split but we would like to speculate that this stems from recent reviews of Trevorrow’s recent film Book of Henry which received dismal reviews.
But let it said that Trevorrow isn’t a good director. The dude has two big flicks that earned at the box office under his belt namely Jurassic World and Safety Not Guaranteed.
This has been the second director sacking for the Star Wars franchise too. The first was a high profile breakup between Lucasfilm and The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller for the Han Solo movie.
