For those who don’t know Bayona’s work, he has directed 2 short films since 1999 but he rose to true prominence with the 2007 Spanish horror film “The Orphanage” and 2012’s disaster drama “The Impossible” which earned Naomi Watts in Academy Award nomination. His last directorial effort was on 2 episodes of the hit horror show “Penny Dreadful” which stars Eva Green and Josh Harnett.

Not much has been said on “Jurassic World 2” other than Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are set to reprise their roles form the first film.

Before he takes on this massive picture J.A Bayona’s next film will be none other than the fantasy drama A monster calls which stars Liam Neeson, Signourney Weaver, Felicity Jones and newcomer Lewis MacDougall.
