Matt Reeves 'Cloverfield 2' Update: It May Never Happen

From Bloody-Disgusting:

While fans of the first Cloverfield are understandably drooling for the day Cloverfield 2 finally makes its way to the big screen, in an interview with B-D reporter Chris Eggertsen earlier today director Matt Reeves (talking about the Feb. 1st DVD/Blu-ray release of Let Me In) claimed that producer J.J. Abrams, screenwriter Drew Goddard, and himself just haven't had a chance to meet yet to hash out a story - and that if they don't figure out something they're all happy with once they do get together, the project could in fact never happen. In other words: the sequel isn't dead, but it's not exactly on the fast-track either.

No no, I still here it echoing through the caves as we all die....haha

My thoughts exactly. I desperately want this movie. Honestly I just need more monster movies. There aren't enough. More than anything I want some questions answered about Cloverfield, which could only come from another movie. Who knows, the director isn't saying it's impossible, just not likely to happen for a while. Damn!

I actually got Cloverfield on the que for my netflix. Always wanted to see it, can't wait when it comes.

"if they don't figure out something they're all happy with once they do get together"

good :)

"the project could in fact never happen"

bad :(

Pretty much sums it up for me.

darklordzor4131d ago

lol, yeah, that's about it. It could be good or it could be really bad. Basically it means fans are exactly where they were before.

I don't know how I feel about this yet.

I love Cloverfield, its one of my favorite movies of all time. Its creative and it truly inspired me ot make my own films. Its a fantastic movie.

In once instance, yes I do want more. and the new JJ Abrams is supposed to be more. Its not Cloverfield, but its a monsterish movie and its set up the same way. I like the idea of it and cant wait to see it.

In a second instance, why ruin it with a second? It has a lot to live up to and you cant really use the handycam style again to sell it. If it fails, Cloverfield will become a Godzilla like name that no one really cares about and looks at as cheesy crap.

I think you could still go the "handycam" route. The rumors before were that a sequel would follow the military. If that's the route they go, then one character could be a "on the front lines" type of reporter (which comes with a camera man). This would allow for an upgrade to the amateurish handycam approach of the first. Allowing for more professional shots/quality, while still maintaining the "realistic" feel of handycam work that these type of found-footage movies work on.
