‘Cloverfield 2’ Planned
No surprise here: "Cloverfield" will receive a sequel, according to a report in Variety.
Paramount is in "early talks" with "Cloverfield" director Matt Reeves, producer J.J. Abrams and writer Drew Goddard to produce a sequel to the record-breaking, low-budget (if you consider $25 million "low-budget," that is) horror film. The film earned nearly twice its production costs in the first weekend it hit theaters, and set a record for the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend.
According to the report, Reeves is also in talks to direct a film titled "The Invisible Woman," but production of that film will likely be held off until after the "Cloverfield" sequel.
