J.A. Bayona is making quite a name for himself in the world of film. After directing his 2012 disaster film ‘Impossible’, Bayona directed several episodes of Showtime’s popular series ‘Penny Dreadful’. Right now Bayona is working on the film adaption of ‘A Monster Calls’, based on the children’s novel by Patrick Ness.
As we reported back in May, Bayona has already signed on to direct ‘World War Z 2’, the follow up to 2013’s zombie outbreak movie starring Brad Pitt. The script for ‘WWZ 2’ will be penned by Steve Knight. The plot is being kept under wraps for now, but it has been said that Brad Pitt will return for his role as Gerry Lane. It will be a bit before we see the movie’s premier in theaters on June 9, 2017.
