NY Magazine has obtained the call-sheet for the JJ Abrams produced top secret monster movie code-named Cloverfield/1-18-08. The call sheet for “day 33 of 33” of shooting appears to reveal the film’s opening scene, ending, and an alternative ending (both of which appear to be very similar on the call sheet). Warning: Do not click on the image to the right or read any further, if you don’t want to know what happens.
NY Magazine also mentioned /Film in their report:
On Monday night, blog /Film reported on a scene in which principal characters Rob and Beth (played by unknowns Michael Stahl-David and Odette Yustman) are buried in debris while hiding under a bridge, and speculated that this could be the movie’s conclusion. From the looks of Monday’s call sheet, it just might be.
But the question is: couldn’t this call-sheet be a planted fake? It certainly sounds like something JJ Abrams and crew might do. And it seems too coincidental that the magazine was easily able to obtain the call sheet so easily from a set which has been sworn to secrecy (even the crew members have been told not to reveal the name of the film). Also, Scene #160 could just be the End of the Central Park sequence, and not the end of the movie. Although, most movies usually have around 150-200 “scenes” in the shooting draft of the screenplay. You can see photos and watch video from this shoot in our previous set report.
According to the call sheet, the production shot a few exteriors on Tuesday, and scene 1 of the movie, which was shot inside the Trump International Hotel and Tower. Basically, Rob moves throughout Beth’s apartment with his handicam. This is apparently how things will begin.
According to this document, as of today, production has wrapped on Cloverfield.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
