Juan Antonio Bayona Nabs New Film
From The Impossible to the unknown

27 January 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Variety

Having tackled horror with The Orphanage and true-life tragedy in The Impossible (which has been winning awards attention), it appears Juan Antonio Bayona’s next target is science fiction. He’s come aboard Warner Bros.’ currently-untitled sci-fi project.

The film is currently being kept strictly under wrap – so strictly that not even a basic plot description crops up in Variety’s story. 

What we do know is this: Kevin McCormick, who produced Gangster Squad and romantic drama The Lucky One is serving the same duty here as the project bubbles away in development at Warners.

The script is by Eric Roth, who has written such films as Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close, Forrest Gump, The Insider, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, Munich and Ali. So while we know almost nothing about what the final movie will be, it has a solid shot at being great with Bayona directing and Roth providing the words (we’re going to conveniently forget here that Roth had anything to do with The Postman).

The Impossible is cinemas now, and star Naomi Watts is up for Best Actress at the Oscars.
