The director of ‘A Monster Calls’ is booked to sit behind the lens for the fifth installment of ‘Jurassic Park’ film series.
“Jurassic World 2” has got a director. J.A. Bayona or Juan Antonio Bayona is officially tapped to help the “Jurassic World” sequel. “It’s official! So excited to join the Jurassic Team!!” the Spanish filmmaker gushes on Twitter following the announcement.
Colin Trevorrow who directed the first “Jurassic Park” reboot was unable to sit behind the lens for the next installment since he’s signed on for “Star Wars: Episode IX”. He, however, will return as a producer and writer. “Proud to collaborate with one of my favorite filmmakers on the next Jurassic adventure. JA Bayona, it’s all yours,” he tweets to welcome the new director.
J.A. Bayona is known for directing 2007’s horror flick “The Orphanage” and 2012’s true-story drama “The Impossible”. His next feature film is called “A Monster Calls” starring Liam Neeson, Sigourney Weaver and Felicity Jones.
The second “Jurassic World” movie is scheduled for June 2018 release. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are expected to return for this new one.
