Posted by Karen Benardello On November - 8 - 2012 0 Comment

Indie filmmaker Colin Trevorrow, who helmed this year’s sci-fi comedy romance ‘Safety Not Guaranteed,’ is on the shortlist to direct the upcoming ‘Star Wars’ movie, the anticipated ‘Episode VII,’ Celebuzz is reporting. The director’s previous film has garnered fans at Lucasfilm, including George Lucas, the founder and former chief executive of the production company, before selling it to The Walt Disney Company on October 30. Trevorrow has reportedly had early discussions with Lucasfilm about ‘Episode VII.’

Trevorrow met with Lucas, who helmed the first four episodes in the hit sci-fi series, several months ago. While there has been no word as to what story elements were discussed, Trevorrow is being considered to lead a new trilogy of films in the series.

Among other directors being considered to direct ‘Episode VII’ are Christopher Nolan, Joss Whedon and ‘Kick Ass’ and ‘X-Men: First Class’ helmer Matthew Vaughn. The film is scheduled to be released in 2015.
