Colin Trevorrow reveals he won't direct Jurassic World sequels

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has revealed that he won't be directing any potential sequel to Jurassic World. 

The director confirmed in an interview with Italian website Bad Taste that if Jurassic World gets a sequel, he will be involved, but he will not be returning to the director's chair. 

He said: "Jurassic Park is like Star Wars. Different directors can give a different taste to each movie. I would be involved in some way, but not as director."

Jurassic World has been directed by Trevorrow and will star Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, Ty Simpkins and Omar Sy. The movie is the first film to emerge from the Jurassic Park franchise since 2001 and acts as a direct sequel to the earlier movie trilogy.

It follows Pratt's Owen, a park ranger who tries to lead a rescue mission for tourists trapped in the revamped theme park after Indominus Rex, a monstrous genetically-modified dinosaur, goes on the rampage.

Jurassic World is due for release on June 11th in the UK and June 12th in the US.
