Colin Trevorrow is the director of the films Safety Not Guaranteed, Jurassic World and The Book of Henry. He is currently producing the upcoming features Intelligent Life, to be directed by Rebecca Thomas, and Powerhouse, to be directed by Emily Carmichael. He lives in London.
On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, Jurassic World‘s Colin Trevorrow sits down with his fellow director and longtime friend Megan Griffiths, whose new movie Sadie, starring Melanie Lynskey, John Gallagher Jr and emerging star Sophia Mitri Schloss, is in select theaters from October 12. The two filmmakers, both veterans of the vibrant Seattle indie scene, discuss everything from the correct pronunciation of their names (spoiler: people always say Trevorrow’s wrong) to how their upbringings shaped them as directors, while also touching on such topics as diversity in Hollywood, Bryce Dallas Howard’s footwear in Jurassic World, why Griffiths is an ideal candidate to direct blockbusters, the myth of Trevorrow’s “overnight success,” and much, much more.
