A Cloverfield Sequel Is Officially On The Way
We all love a good monster movie. While it may seem like a far too overdone genre, some films manage to sneak through the masses with a more intriguing and unique plot than most. 2008’s Cloverfield is one of them. The Matt Reeves directed film utilized the found-footage method of filmmaking to portray the chase. Fans of the film are in for a treat, as a Cloverfield sequel is in the works!
A Cloverfield Sequel Is Coming
Wait, hasn’t there already been various Cloverfield sequels? 2016 saw 10 Cloverfield Lane, an expansion of the film. While some mistake it as a sequel, the film has been said to be a “blood relative” but not a sequel by producer J.J. Abrams. The Cloverfield Paradox released later in 2018, working as another installment of the franchise. Though, it was not a dedicated sequel.
This new Cloverfield sequel will be produced through J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions partnered with WarnerMedia. Joe Barton, who is currently writing the untitled The Batman spinoff for HBO Max, will be writing the script. It has also been confirmed that this new sequel will not be a found footage film. Unfortunately, Reeves will not be involved with this film. We suspect that his work on The Batman would keep him too busy.
