I’m super-psyched for the director of Star Wars: Episode VII to reveal themselves, and not because I want to see how they take on George Lucas’ iconic series. No. I just can’t bear to hear anymore stories about who or who may not take the reigns, given that it’s almost definitely a new person every day, despite the fact that said individuals reveal themselves hours later to be completely uninvolved. Same goes now for Colin Trevorrow, who insists that the odds of him directing Star Wars are “3720 to 1.” For anybody unfamiliar with odds, those are considered not good.
The rumor that Trevorrow was in the running as potential Star Wars director emerged recently when he came out with this enigmatic paragraph of human mouth-talk presumably designed to generate discussion and second-guessing:
“As far as professional life, I can’t speak with any specificity as to what the next thing will be. There are amazing opportunities that have arisen as a result of this. One of them, I will say, will probably create a great deal of ire against me on the Internet when people find out what it is. So, I just want to say in advance that I promise you, for all of those who love the mythology that I will be tackling, trust that I love it as much as you do. And I will respect it, and hopefully make it not suck.”
But nope: Trevorrow insists he’s actually screwing around with another franchise we all love. This whole ordeal, it seems, has made Colin Trevorrow far more famous than he ought to be at this point in time. So whilst we all go back to the drawing board in our infernal attempts to find out who will try to lure Harrison Ford off Mt. Grumpy and into a film studio, Trevorrow is probably just happy that people finally know who the hell he is.
