Two names are currently rumored to be taking on the next Star Wars franchise with Matthew Vaughn and indie sci-fi filmmaker Colin Trevorrow.

Trevorrow recently attended the Stockholm International Film festival where he was asked about directing Star Wars.

He mentions that he can't really comment on particulars, but that he would absolutely love to direct the movie, and in addition, is a huge fan of Star Wars, which was one requirement that Kathleen Kennedy and George Lucas recently made be known.

It is not something that I can comment too much on. But I can definitely say, I am as much of a fan of Star Wars as everyone else for whom Star Wars was the most important thing in their life, when they were a kid. I'm deeply aware of how profoundly important it is, to billions of people. It really is a mythology and possibly even a belief system for a lot of people. I certainly can't comment on what my involvement may ever be, I can definitely say that I would absolutely love to direct a "Star Wars" film at some point in my life. That would be incredible, I'm not daunted by it. Even if I understand that any thinking director who cares about it as I do, as much as a lot of directors do, would be afraid of screwing it up. But I also think that it's a risk that a lot of directors would be willing to take, because they care about it so much.

Colin Trevorrow directed the sci-fi indie hit Safety Not Guaranteed, which has garnished a lot of praise and attention. The movie is described as: Three magazine employees head out on an assignment to interview a guy who placed a classified ad seeking a companion for time travel.
