It looks like the World War Z sequel has suffered a blow as the director has had to leave the project.
Paramount Pictures have confirmed that The Orphanage and The Impossible director Juan Antonio Bayona had to leave due to scheduling issues: “Bayona is no longer able to make World War Z 2 this year, and it is our ambition to do so. He is a wonderful director and we hope to work with him soon.”
The sequel to the much better than people would have you believe World War Z was set to film this summer with Brad Pitt back in the lead role.
The sequel was penned by Steven Knight and rewritten by Dennis Kelly with a release date of June 9th, 2017 – no word on wether or not the movie will still aim for that date or on who might helm.
We’ll keep you up-to-date though.
