After dropping out of the running to direct World War Z 2, Deadline is reporting that Juan Antonio Bayona is currently being eyed by Universal as a potential director for Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World sequel, Jurassic World 2.
"I’d heard his name way back in September, when it was denied, and then he attached to World World Z 2. After Deadline revealed last week that he exited that picture over timing, I am now once again hearing his name as potential director for the Dino sequel." - Deadline
