‘Cloverfield 2’ Happening, But Not Anytime Soon Says Matt Reeves

Cloverfield 2 still happening says Matt Reeves Ever since the release of Cloverfield in January of 2008, there has been talk of a sequel. But information on Cloverfield 2 has been quite sparse over the last few years. Some fans have even started to think that this will never happen. That is not true, says Matt Reeves.

The director of the original movie explains that he has been too busy to lock a script, but that he is constantly working on perfecting the sequel's storyline.

Here is what he said.

"Well, you are going to see it - we just don't know when [laughs]. 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."

About the sequel taking place in real time, and being shot fauxumentary-style, Matt Reeves had this to say.

"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."

Cloverfield 2 is in development .

        @bane5000 I agree but since it was from the view of random survivors i didnt expect much in the way of explanation. Maybe a sequel could fill in those gaps.

          I bet the studio isn't even f*cking with this. Reeves idea to basically do another Cloverfield from someone else's camera view probably isn't flying.

            @ajlewis...With that lil easter egg of the whisper sayin its alive, as well as the scene when it first attacks and everyone runs in the store, u can hear Robs brother telling " Rob, i saw it, its alive ", its like they had some idea what the creature was, they gotta continue the story somehow, u know

              @skywise...lol I'll admit when i saw it in theaters i was getting kind of dizzy and lightheaded from the camera bouncing around, but in all it was a good sci fi film for these days, it just bugged me they never said what the hell the monster was :]

                        I loved the first movie. I dont know how they're going to go with the second but im afraid it might be a straight to VHS.

                            @bane5000 I remeber reading about that bridge scene too. There was a moment when the camera guy looked over and there was another guy filming him as he was filming...or something like that. I could deal with a sequel based off that idea. The shakey camera did not bother me like it did most everyone else i know.

                                Please do freaking regular camera shots and show the moster more often I liked Cloverfield but the freaking camera kinda pisses you off after a while.

                                    The reason for the shaking camera was that the movie was shot as hand held{a.k.a. Home movie} as apposed to profesionally shot...With real hitech cameras!!!!!

                                        Hated this crap Godzilla wanna be. the only reason for that shaky camera was to cover up the low budget. And what kind of monster we got, a Teletubby on Acid. PS J.J. co-wrote that other crap Armageddon so perfect he ain't!
