The Orphanage fame director J.A Bayona’s stars looks like they are aligned perfectly. First, he gets to direct the Jurassic World 2 and then gets signed to direct A Monster Calls which is the adaptation of Patrick Ness’s novel of the same title.
J.A Bayona confirmed in a recent interview with LRM that Jurassic world is going to be a trilogy. He said, ” The whole Jurassic World is trilogy that Colin Trevorrow has envisioned.”
He further added,” We’re writing the second chapter, and it is very interesting where he’s leading the story.”
Bayona even briefed his love for Steven Spielberg’ movies and said, ” I grew up watching Steven Spielberg’s movies and I love those movies and the legacy. so it’s a question of being truthful to the legacy and at the same time bringing new stuff that people will appreciate.”
Jurassic World was a masterpiece and Jurassic World 2 is expected to be further more than that. Signing a young director for such a big project is a brave move but Bayona has proved his potential before and The Orphanage was a great movie in itself.
The third film will also feature a new director as it seems with the first too and Bayona might get his hands on in writing again with two more directors.
