Who? The guy that made the indie sci-fi rom-com Safety Not Guaranteed, in which Aubrey Plaza inexplicably falls for crazy guy Mark Duplass because he says he can time travel, among other things.
Trevorrow had previously said he was in talks to direct an installment of a franchise with a built-in fanbase, so naturally teh INternetz went crazy saying it was Star Wars. Turns out it was this.
And he was supposed to remake Flight of the Navigator too. I'm guessing that's on hold now.
