With the journey to Jurassic World resoundingly complete, director Colin Trevorrow already has Intelligent Life in his future. But in the wake of that juggernaut dinosaur success, his mysterious new project The Book Of Henry is also on the fast track at Focus Features, with Naomi Watts now in the final stages of negotiations to star.

Not much is yet known about the film, other than that its screenplay is by Gregg Hurwitz, who was involved in the most recent V series and has Orphan X at the option stage with Bradley Cooper. He's a published author who's also written comics for Marvel (Wolverine) and DC (Batman), but The Book Of Henry is an original script. Which means there's no source to plunder for details and no clue as to Watts' role. Curses.

It's clearly been around for some time, however, since Trevorrow says, "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.”

Shooting is pencilled in for September in New York.
