Jurassic World Helmer Colin Trevorrow Retools Long-Gestating Atlantis Movie, Which He’ll Now Direct for Skydance

Jurassic World helmer Colin Trevorrow has signed a deal to direct and produce a movie titled Atlantis for Skydance.

If you’ll recall, Trevorrow was attached to direct Atlantis when the project was in the works at Universal, which had a script from Dante Harper (Alien: Covenant). The project stalled in development and Universal put it into turnaround, allowing Trevorrow to shop the project elsewhere.

However, he first decided to reconceive the project with scribe Charmaine DeGraté, a writer and co-executive producer on HBO’s House of the Dragon. The script still calls for a fantasy adventure about the fabled civilization that sank into the ocean, where its advanced technology remains today, just waiting to be discovered for either good or evil.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news, DeGraté will now write the script for Atlantis, while Trevorrow will produce via his Metronome Film Company along with the Skydance trio of David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger.

Trevorrow directed both Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Dominion, both of which grossed more than $1 billion worldwide. Meanwhile, in addition to House of the Dragon, DeGraté wrote and co-executive produced Leslye Headland‘s upcoming Star Wars series The Acolyte, and she also served as a co-executive producer on Daisy Jones & the Six, Amazon’s upcoming rock band drama starring Riley Keough that debuts in March.

Atlantis is DeGraté’s first feature project, and she’s represented by UTA and Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment, while Trevorrow is repped by WME.
