Colin Trevorrow, 38, the director best known for his work on the critically acclaimed 2012 film Safety Not Guaranteed, has finished helming duties on Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park film series, which will screen in theaters on June 12. He has signed on to direct Book of Henry for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment (SKE), according to Deadline.

Nothing has been said at all about what the Book of Henry is all about other than its an original script written by Greg Hurwitz, the celebrated author of crime novels, screenplays, and comic books who has been known to have sneaked in demolition ranges with Navy SEALs, swum with sharks in the Galápagos, and gone undercover into mind-control cults while in the course of doing research for his thrillers. Hurwitz is a critically acclaimed, bestselling author of fourteen novels, the most recent of which are Don't Look Back, You're Next, The Survivor and Tell No Lies. He is likewise a bestselling comic book writer, having penned Wolverine and Punisher stories for Marvel and Batman stories to DC Comics. Of course, he has also written screenplays for, as well as sold spec scripts to many of the major studios and TV networks. Hurwitz just recently signed on to write a screenplay adapted from his own novel Orphan X for Warner Bros, a project Bradley Cooper is producing and likely starring in.

"Book Of Henry is a remarkable piece of screenwriting that has stuck with me for years. I feel very fortunate to be able to tell this story. It is a true original," Trevorrow said of his next directorial assignment. Targeted to start filming this coming September in New York, SKE is set to independently finance and co-produce the film with Double Nickel Entertainment. SKE's President of Production Carla Hacken and Jim Tauber are serving as executive producers.
