Star Wars Episode VII: Colin Trevorrow Not Directing
We can scratch Colin Trevorrow off the list of directors to helm Star Wars Episode VII. Trevorrow was previously rumored to be attached to the movie and seemed to confirm the news in an interview back in June.
However, Trevorrow tweeted that he is not doing Star Wars, and that the interview actually referenced another fan-favorite movie that he is trying not to mess up.
To clarify, there is another film we all love that I'm currently trying not to mess up. Odds I will direct Episode VII: 3720 to 1.
(Note: "3720 to 1" is the same odds that C-3PO gave to Han Solo about navigating the asteroid field in Empire Strikes Back.)
With Colin Trevorrow not directing, only one name is rumored to be attached to Star Wars and that's Matthew Vaughn.
Vaughn was recently set to direct X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but bowed out right before the Disney Star Wars news surfaced.
It was then rumored that Vaughn was going to direct Episode VII; however, it then came out that the reason for Vaughn leaving X-Men was for another movie, Secret Service, from creator Mark Millar, who went on to highly recommend and support Vaughn for Star Wars.
Star Wars Episode VII has a 2015 release date.
