Briefly: Juan Antonio Bayona, a disciple of Guillermo Del Toro, first directed The Orphanage. He followed that with The Impossible, which garnered Naomi Watts an Oscar nomination. Next up, the former music video director will follow his famous friend to Warner Bros. where he’ll direct an untitled sci-fi film written by Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, Munich, The Insider) and produced by Kevin McCormick (Gangster Squad).
There’s no word on what it’s about but Roth is a hugely talented screenwriter and him teaming with Bayona is something to keep an eye on. [Variety]
