Has Jurassic World 2 found its director…

January 22nd, 2016 by James Campbell Comments


With Star Wars dominating the box office, it is easy to forget that Jurassic World had impressive figures earlier in the year. However, with the film’s director, Colin Trevorrow, migrating to Star Wars: Episode IX, the Jurassic franchise has been left, somewhat adrift.

However, it would seem that the announcement of a replacement might be imminent. Rumours have begun to circle that Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage and The Impossible) may be the studio’s new choice.

This all seems to be based off the fact that Bayona has recently left the long-gestating sequel to World War Z, due to several delays. Given this break in the schedule, Universal seems to view him as a likely candidate for Jurassic World 2. On top of all of this, Bayona is said to have a strong working relationship with Jurassic World’s producer, Frank Marshall.

As of this moment, the sequel is still scheduled for a June 22nd 2018 release date, so there is still plenty of time to make an announcement, hopefully sooner, rather than later.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
