Colin Trevorrow has lined up his next project, but it won’t be taking him back to Isla Nublar.
EW can confirm that Dreamworks has picked up Intelligent Life with Trevorrow set to direct based on a script that he co-wrote with Safety Not Guaranteed writer Derek Connolly. Connolly will also produce the film. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
Little is known about the plot of Life, but it is reportedly developed out of one of Trevorrow and Connolly’s earlier projects, The Ambassador. That film was meant to be Trevorrow’s follow-up to Guaranteed before he was brought on to direct Jurassic World.
The Ambassador was originally about a United Nations worker who would serve as humanity’s representative in the case of communication with an alien species, but it’s unclear how much of the original idea will translate to the new project.
No release date has been set for Intelligent Life, but Trevorrow’s most recent project, Jurassic World, hits theaters on June 12.
