The Orphanage And The Impossible’s JA Bayona Working On American Sci-Fi Film

 

JA Bayona is two for two with me so far, having created a pair of sweet, but also upsetting, films about family.

The first, The Orphanage, was a horror mystery with some deep undercurrents of tragedy. The second, The Impossible, was an account of survival against the backdrop of the Asian Tsunami.

Neither is perfect, but both are very touching.

Still, for all of their similarities, those two films are quite clearly distinct.

And Bayona is set to swap genres again for his third picture.

Variety say that Eric Roth has written a sci-fi picture for Warner
Bros. and that Bayona has signed on to direct it. Do we know anything
more about it? Well, Deadline call it “a space pic.”

And that’s it. We know more about Star Wars Episode 7.

More on the Bayona-Roth movie in due course, I’m sure.
