Safety Not Guaranteed Director Colin Trevorrow to Helm Jurassic Park 4

 Colin Trevorrow arrives at TheWrap 4th Annual Pre-Oscar Party at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on February 20, 2013 in Beverly Hills, California.

Deadline reports that Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow has been tapped to direct Jurassic Park 4. This is a particularly insane jump in scale, especially when you consider that the small-budgeted Safety was the first movie Trevorrow ever directed. How did this happen? According to Deadline, the studio responded to Trevorrow being a "huge fan of the trilogy." Seems like a pretty thin reason; however, that being said, Vulture would've hired him just for how cool his last name is — it's the name-baby of Trevor and tomorrow.
