Cloverfield Sequel Is Not Coming Soon To A Theater Near You
Still holding out hope for a Cloverfield sequel? Well, don’t hold your breath. Speaking with MTV News, Cloverfield director Matt Reeves revealed that while he, J.J. Abrams and their fellow creative partners are still interested in another round of monster movie madness, they haven’t come anywhere close to cracking the story for a proposed Cloverfield 2.
“We would love to do it, we just haven’t figured out the idea that we want to do yet,” Reeves said. “J.J. [Abrams] has been very busy with ‘Super 8′ and he’s really busy with it now, obviously because they’ve got a release date to make and he’s busily working in editorial.”
“Drew Goddard, he made a movie in the interim which hasn’t come out yet called ‘Cabin in the Woods,’ and he’s now writing a movie for Steven Spielberg called ‘Robopocalypse,’” he added. “So everybody is very, very busy, but we do constantly talk about trying to find a moment to get together so we can sit down and talk about what we think would be the best version of doing something like that because we think it would be really fun to do. Hopefully we’ll have time in the near future to start talking about it.”
As for Reeves himself, the director claims that the Cloverfield sequel is “always in the back of my mind. It’s always there.” For now, it sounds like it’s going to stay there.
