Ever since the success of Cloverfield fans have been hoping and praying for a sequel. Thus far we’ve seen fan-made viral videos, hoped that Super 8 was actually the return of the beast, and have heard tons of chatter but nothing concrete. Will we ever see Clovie again? The answer is YES.
In an interview with Total Film Matt Reeves has gone on the record and dropped the following on fans:
“Well, you are going to see it – we just don’t know when,” laughs Reeves, offering the first official confirmation. “At the moment we are talking about the story quite a lot. Drew Goddard, who wrote the original, is going to pen the sequel, and J.J. Abrams is very much involved. However, the three of us have been so busy that getting the right idea together has been taking a long time.”
Will the sequel again be shot cinéma-vérité style? “You see, that’s a difficult part: We want it to be shot like the first, but how can you continue that idea successfully for a second time? We have a lot of affection for the original, and the sequel can’t just be the same thing. But that is tricky when you need to have a monster destroying stuff once again.”
Look for more (hopefully) soon!
