Before J.J. Abrams was hired by Lucasfilm and Disney to direct Star Wars Episode VII, Trevorrow was one of many names that popped up in the Internet rumor mill for that coveted gig. He openly denied being a frontrunner on Twitter by tweeting, "Odds I will direct Episode VII: 3720 to 1" back in mid-November.
Same same tweet also mentioned "another film we all love" that he's "currently trying not to mess up." It turns out that film is Jurassic Park 4, and it looks like he's been involved or in negotiations/running for the director's chair job for upward of four months.
