ON

colin trevorrowWhile Jurassic World is still a few months away, that film’s breakout director Colin Trevorrow is already working on his next project, a sci-fi thriller called Intelligent Life, which he’ll make with some of the same team who brought back that popular dinosaur franchise.

With roots in an earlier project Trevorrow co-wrote with his regular collaborator Derek Connolly, DreamWorks Pictures has picked up the project according to The Hollywood Reporter, their first acquisition following the arrival of the company’s new CEO, Michael Wright. Jurassic World producer Frank Marshall has been retained to produce the film along with Trevorrow and Big Beach, who produced Trevorrow and Connolly’s indie hit Safety Not Guaranteed.

Plot details are being kept secret other than the fact that it’s a re-conceived version of The Ambassador, an earlier project Trevorrow and Connolly had been shopping about a UN worker hired to represent humankind for the chance of alien contact who ends up falling in love with an alien.
