The Impossible is, at its core, an inspirational drama.  But director Juan Antonio Bayona didn’t stray too far from his genre roots with the disaster flick, diving headfirst into the gore and horror caused by the tsunami.  Bayona showed a skilled hand with both sides of The Impossible and confirmed he is a filmmaker to watch after his promising debut, the horror film The Orphanage.

According to Variety, Bayona’s will take on a new genre with his next project, an untitled science fiction movie scripted by Eric Roth.  No details on the story yet, but Roth has been nominated for three Oscars (The Insider, Munich, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and won one (Forrest Gump) so it’s in good hands.  Kevin McCormick (Gangster Squad) is producing for Warner Bros.
