Brad Pitt's World War Z sequel has taken a step forward as a director has now been signed up.

Filmmaker Juan Antonio Bayona will take the reins on the follow-up to the smash hit zombie action movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.

The director's previous films include The Orphanage and The Impossible.

Brad played a former United Nations employee who travels the world trying to stop a zombie plague in the first film, and the star is expected to return for the sequel.

World War Z was a box office success when it was released this year, making more than 500 million dollars (£300 million) worldwide.
