Colin Trevorrow's JURASSIC WORLD will stomp into theaters on June 12 and now the director is looking ahead to his next project, with THR reporting that Trevorrow has lined up another sci-fi tale titled INTELLIGENT LIFE.

DreamWorks has picked up the sci-fi thriller INTELLIGENT LIFE that Trevorrow wrote with his JURASSIC WORLD collaborator Derek Connolly, with Trevorrow attached to direct. This film reteams him with Steven Spielberg, who executive produced the Universal movie through his Amblin Entertainment banner. It also reunites him with JURASSIC WORLD's Frank Marshall, who will produce with Trevorrow and production banner Big Beach. Connolly is executive producing.

Plot details are being kept secret, but the project is said to have its roots in an earlier Trevorrow-Connolly project titled THE AMBASSADOR, which was intended to act as a follow-up to the duo's acclaimed indie SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED and set up at Big Beach, the shingle run by Peter Saraf and Marc Turtletaub, as a low-budget sci-fi thriller. The story was said to follow...

...a shy, low-ranking staffer who unwittingly makes first contact when he meets a mysterious beautiful woman and must risk more than his job when they are threatened by forces of this world and beyond.

THR reports that INTELLIGENT LIFE is the kernel of THE AMBASSADOR reconceived, with sources saying the tone harkens to SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED and is a big idea surrounded by rich characters.
