Paramount Pictures and Plan B’s World War Z 2 (2017) is the World War Sequel and has lost director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage (2007), The Impossible (2012)) to scheduling issues. Bayona’s latest movie, A Monster Calls (2016), is running a little behind schedule and caused him to decline from filling the director shoes on World War Z 2. World War Z 2 is still set to release in movie theaters on June 9, 2017, with Brad Pitt returning as Gerry Lane.
Because of pre-existing film commitments, Bayona is not able to make World War Z this year, and it is our ambition to do so. He is a wonderful director, and we hope to work with him soon.
