Cloverfield 2

Matt Reeves, director of "Cloverfield," has been talking about making a sequel to the monster movie hit.

Just weeks after the movie came out, the studio behind "Cloverfield" greenlit a sequel.

According to Screen Rant, "Since the film came out in January there have been quite a few discussions and brainstorming sessions about the sequel. Reeves emphasized the point that wanting a sequel and having a good idea for one are two separate things."

In an interview with MTV, Reeves spoke more on a possibly sequel and what ti might be about.

“There are a couple ideas that have potential but we haven’t quite cracked it yet,” says Reeves who is juggling his orginal screenplay, “The Invisible Woman” and his remake of “Let the Right One In” among his future projects. Trying to pin down just what those “Cloverfield” sequel ideas are though is easier said than done. One thought was to return to the source of the inspiration for the film. “When we were in Japan we thought, wouldn’t it be cool to do it here,” he said.

One things seems certain. Don’t expect a traditional sequel picking up right after the first with the same (still living) characters. Rather the filmmakers behind the hit film have discussed a sequel that “wasn’t necessarily right after that night but had intersections with the original.”

More news to come! Catch ya' later!

Hmmm...it seems this is a tricky endeavor to me. The writers will have to get clever, which could bode well for a sequel. Keep me in the loop on this one
