Default JJ Abrams talks Cloverfield 2!

http://www.horror-movies.ca/horror_14442.html

Quote:
It has been forever since we have heard a thing about Cloverfield 2 and at WonderCon JJ Abrams spilled the beans on Cloverfield 2. As much as we all thought the idea was dead JJ Abrams still firmly believes he can cash in with a pointless sequel. In a recent interview he revealed;

“We’re actually working on an idea right now,” Abrams told the packed crowd. “The key obviously at doing any kind of sequel, certainly this film included, is that it better not be a business decision. If you’re going to do something, it should be because you’re really inspired to do it.

It doesn’t really have to mean anything, doesn’t mean it will work, but it means we did it because we cared, not because we thought we could get the bucks. We have an idea that we thought was pretty cool that we’re playing with, which means there will be something that’s connected to ‘Cloverfield,’ but I hope it happens sooner than later because the idea is pretty sweet.”

Cloverfield was genius. Admittedly it made alot of people want to puke and was not exactly earth shatteringly awesome but it was a good movie with some unique elements. Assuming it did not make you sea sick trying to watch it. The genius of Cloverfield was its marketing and its tiny budget. A studio film which was made for nickels and marketed virally that exploded. Cloverfield 2 may have a cool story and great ideas but it will NOT have the magic of the first one. No way... no how.
please keep the cloverfield hate out of this thread. its tiresome

read that earlier, glad to see he's only willing to do it if there's a great story to be told and not just to make studios money. i have to say i originally thought the whole cloverfield shaky cam movie was going to be terrible and dumb but i saw it and actually really liked it. i personally think this story only needs 1 movie, but i'm definitely interested in seeing where the 2nd one would go..

I will see the sequel if/when it comes out. Thought the first movie was entertaining and definitely sounds and looks good on blu. Hopefully they take their time and develop a good idea and not rush something out.

I hope it gets done. I thought the first one was done quiet well and fun to watch.
Someday we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny

yeah this is one of those movie's where i'm totally ok if they don't make a sequel. but since they've talked about it for so long, i'm curious how they can bring a 2nd outing to us

I liked the first one a whole lot, hope they can capture the spirit of it in a sequel.

I really like the first, and have been wondering when the hell the 2nd was coming. Obviously it's going to be awhile.

I think a movie about one of the Nat. Guard units would be kind of cool. Show them from the call up and their first briefings(which probably wouldn't include a giant monster), to actually arriving in the city and finding out it's not a natural disaster or terrorist attack but a 500' monster.
Now the real pain begins, Danny-boy.

But focus on one or 2 people. And those people are also the ones that found the camera.

I didn't read anything in this thread, but I hope that all J.J. Abrams had to say was, "There will not be a Cloverfield 2."

Default There must be a sequel!

Everyone wants to know the origin of the monster. I don't think the monster died, so what did it do next & where is the monster going.

Many unanswered questions. Loved the 1st one but I'm curious.

see i find that will be difficult to achieve, because the first one largely banked off the handheld camera "gimmick" (and i don't mean that in a bad way). continuing that style of camerawork wouldn't feel as fresh or unique in the 2nd, and i doubt abrams and reeves would revert back to normal photography. who knows though, i'm sure they'll think of something good. the first movie started with a great viral marketing campaign, i hope they can do something cool like that again

I highly enjoyed Cloverfield. I would probably put it in my Top 10 films for the year... at number 10 that is.

I'm undecided on a sequel. There's certainly room for one, but it would have to be extremely improved for me to care about.
