Default Cloverfield Sequel

It also has nothing to do with Super 8

Source:MTV

Quote:
Director Matt Reeves did something really fascinating with "Cloverfield" in giving us a "monster invades city" movie told from the perspective of a small group of fleeing citizens. The people who are usually staring down the gullet of a massive destructive force instead take centerstage. The results are quite suspenseful.

MTV spoke to Reeves recently about his upcoming "Let the Right One In" remake, "Let Me In," but we managed to squeeze in a few questions about the status of the frequently asked about "Cloverfield" sequel. Reeves admitted that both himself and producer J.J. Abrams are focused on other things right now, but there's definitely still a strong interest in returning to that universe.

"It really isn't the moment for [the sequel] to go any further than it has, but it continues to be a priority for both of us," Reeves said. "J.J. is very immersed in putting together 'Super 8.' He's... in pre-production and really, really passionately getting that together. And I'm passionately finishing 'Let Me In.'"

Reeves also confirmed that there's no connection between the two films, "Cloverfield" and "Super 8." "['Super 8'] is not the 'Cloverfield' sequel. ... There literally is no connection whatsoever [between 'Super 8' and 'Cloverfield']. It's just a really cool idea for a film. I know what [J.J. is] doing and it's amazing."

I'm glad they still want to do something else with Cloverfield.

First was OK, so will look forward to a second helping of mindless idiots getting mashed up.

My only thing with this, if it is going to be a time before we get it, will people remember the first for what it was.

Yeah, I don't know about this. CLOVERFIELD was a great monster movie. I'm not sure they could seriously tap that vein again. I'd definitely be interested in seeing how they could follow it up.

Well if they do, hopefully that person has a slightly more stable camcorder I say just re-release Cloverfield and have that as an alternate branch.

Actually, Cloverfield was unrealistic because the camera was too stable.

Nice. If it was me filming and not Hud, you'd shut the film off after the first 2 minutes.

Exactly. People running for their lives probably wouldn't take the time set up a tripod.

You know, I had heard this, too. What I recall hearing or reading was that there's a part wherein the lead camera dude lands a shot on another guy on the bridge (before the bridge is trashed) who's actually videoing him, and that was going to be the perspective ... that we'd end up seeing this other self-contained story within the same timeframe of the original film, but following another cast of characters, and the only linkage would be seeing one another from the bridge. Don't know what to make of that idea, other than the fact that it's a 'gimmick' to tie in to the first flick.

The director had said a while ago he was thinking about making the sequel from the Marines' perspective. Hopefully they won't go that route. It'd be kinda pointless to re-hash the same story.

The marines or a proper reporter doing the same time frame would be nice.

That is the point of sequels. Rehash the same story to make some more money Cannot see another way to do a sequel.

lol. The movie would've been better having the Marines as the focal point. The first what...20 minutes of the movie where they're at the house party was so incredibly boring. That scene would've worked as a better transition into the action if it were trimmed-down a lot, even though it did make you dislike the main characters even more and wished them to have a quick death.

Apart from Dairy of the Dead, I cannot think of another group of characters where I was looking forward to there deaths so much. Your right about the party scene. Scrap it or at least take 19 minutes from it. All it did was show how bad these people were.

The problem with that though is the reporter has already been done in [REC] 1 and the Marines is rather similar to [REC]2

I know, but apart from re hashing the same story from the view point of a different set of people, there really is no other people walking around a city with a camera. Even a sequel set after the first film needs a different set of people or it really will be repetitive.

How about from the view point of the monster. Give it a collar camera.

Scary isn't it

I just think that Cloverfield should be shot on actual film, not with handheld. I kind of think that Cloverfield had it's run with the handheld action, [REC] 2 made sense to really continue the handheld idea and even threw in the small cams on the SWAT's helmets, which was awesome.

However, I think Cloverfield 2 should either have a new type of handheld idea or just shoot standard. Either way though, I'm excited for this one.

Default Cloverfield 2

This is all I can find......If anybody has anything to add please add. I loved the first movie


In a recent 2011 interview, Matt Reeves gave an update on the status of Cloverfield 2, saying, "Getting the right idea together has been taking a long time." "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 JJ 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." When asked if the sequel will shoot in real-time again, Reeves stated "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."
