There has been a firestorm of speculation on who will direct Star Wars: Episode VII ever since word broke that Disney purchased Lucasfilm and the rights to Star Wars with plans to churn out a new sequel trilogy starting in 2015. Big name directors including Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Zack Snyder and Brad Bird have disavowed any involvement with the picture, but Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) is a name that keeps popping up. We recently reported on some of Trevorrow's comments about the new movie as a Star Wars fan. Now, a new video interview has surfaced with Trevorrow talking about possibly helming a movie with a significant fan base. Hit the jump to check out the video. [Update: Trevorrow has reached out on Twitter to clarify his statement, denying that he's involved with the new Star Wars. More after the jump.] Update: Trevorrow took to his Twitter account last night to put the Star Wars talk to rest: To clarify, there is another film we all love that I'm currently trying not to mess up. »
