World War Z sequel loses director Juan Antonio Bayona

SHARE:

Timing it seems is everything as Paramount Pictures confirmed today that director Juan Antonio Bayona has indeed exited the sequel to World War Z. Citing timing as the issue, the director it seems is committed to finishing post production on A Monster Calls and feels the Summer is too early to jump into the zombie sequel. Eager to keep to their proposed release date of June 9, 2017 Paramount Pictures confirmed to Deadline that “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.”


Spanish visionary Bayona was tapped for the post having come to the attention of Hollywood for horror film The Orphanage and his true-life tsunami tale The Impossible. Having wrapped production on A Monster Calls starring Felicity Jones, Liam Neeson, Sigourney Weaver and Toby Kebbell for Focus Features, he is now finishing it in post, ready for release in October this year.

Plagued with production issues the first time round including a complete re-shoot of the third act, World War Z enjoyed commercial success taking around $540 million dollars, thus paving the way for a sequel. Producer and star Brad Pitt is returning and the task begins now in finding Bayona's replacement.
