Abrams Talks New Cloverfield

Cloverfield 2? (click for larger imageOne of my favorite films of last year was without question Cloverfield. It gave me, a huge monster movie fan, everything that I was looking for and, in this crappy cinema climate, needed. This weekend at WonderCon Abrams did a little talking about the franchise's future.

Shock Till You Drop reports via info gathered by ComingSoon.net:

"We're actually working on an idea right now," Abrams told fans in attendance. "The key obviously at doing any kind of sequel, certainly this film included, is that it better not be a business decision. If you're going to do something, it should be because you're really inspired to do it. It doesn't really have to mean anything, doesn't mean it will work, but it means we did it because we cared, not because we thought we could get the bucks. We have an idea that we thought was pretty cool that we're playing with, which means there will be something that's connected to Cloverfield, but I hope it happens sooner than later because the idea is pretty sweet."

Sounds good to me.

Cloverfield was one of the most disappointing movies of last year. It's partly my fault, after hearing all the rave reviews I got my hopes up for a good time. Instead we got less than 10 minutes of monster mayhem (excluding the silly "parasite" creatures) and 75 minutes of people screaming and crying into a hand held camera.
A sequel might work if they ditch the gimmick and give us a movie that doesn't make people seasick. Oh, and show the friggin' monster this time.
