'Jurassic World 2' Confirms J A Bayona as Director – Hall Of Fame Magazine


‘Jurassic World 2’ Confirms J A Bayona as Director

Finally, it has been officially announced that “A Monster Calls” director JA Bayona will be in charge of directing “Jurassic World 2”.

A couple of months ago,  Bryce Dallas Howard teased that “Jurassic World 2” will show a different “Claire” as fans can still remember how Howard outran a T-Rex in a skirt and high heels in the first “Jurassic World” movie. Around the same time, she even hinted that the sequel was “awesome” from the things that she heard.

But while it seemed that Howard, as well as co-actor Chris Pratt, are both set to reprise their roles as Claire and Owen, the sequel has yet to identify a director that would take Collin Trevorrow’s place.  According to Screen Rant, the second movie is scheduled to open in theaters on June 22nd, 2018 but by the time it starts filming, Treverrow may already be busy directing “Star Wars: Episode IX.”

Meanwhile, according to Den of Geek, rumors have been circulating that Director J A Bayona will be filling that missing piece after he finishes working on the movie adaptation of Patrick Ness’ “A Monster Calls.” Finally, the said rumors were confirmed via Twitter by “Jurassic World” producer Frank Marshall.

He wrote on Twitter, “Thrilled to announce JA Bayona is on board to direct JW2.  Welcome to the team @FilmBayona!”

Director Bayona, who previously working on the movies like “The Impossible” and “The Orphanage,” then expressed his excitement shortly after by writing on Twitter, “It’s official! So excited to join the Jurassic Team!”

This does not mean though that Treverrow, who directed the first movie, is completely deserting the franchise.  Den of Geek reports that he and Derek Connolly have teamed up to produce the screenplay for “Jurassic World 2” and Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are currently the only confirmed cast.

Thrilled to announce JA Bayona is on board to direct JW2. Welcome to the team @FilmBayona!
