Cloverfield is Getting a Proper Sequel!

by | Feb 1, 2021

When Cloverfield launched in 2008, it became a surprise hit that went on to launch as franchise based within a shared story universe. However, fans have been waiting patiently for a TRUE sequel to the original story. Well, it seems like Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures are finally moving ahead with this very thing, as they announce plans for Cloverfield 2.

Cloverfield followed a group of 20-something New Yorkers as they try to navigate the city during an attack by a giant monster. It was shot as a found footage film, with a very healthy SFX and visual effects budget. The film launched after a massive viral advertising campaign which was a huge success for the film. The film saw two more films based in a shared universe, 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Cloverfield Paradox, released in 2016 and 2018, respectively. 

THR dropped the news about the new film, listing filmmaker Matt Reeves as the director for the film. British screenwriter Joe Barton is on board to write the script, and it looks like they may be taking a leaf out of The Blair Witch Project, by creating a sequel that is NOT a found footage film.

 J. J. Abrams will produce along with Bad Robot head of film, Hannah Minghella, but original director Matt Reeves is not involved. 

Sounds like a great project.
