Matt Reeves Michael Giacchino Reddit AMA

When two popular filmmakers hop on Reddit together, anything can happen. And lots did happen Wednesday night when Matt Reeves and Michael Giacchino did a simultaneous AMA to promote the excellent Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

First up, the director dropped some super-interesting information about the making of the film and how he plans on working toward the 1968 original. Later, he got Giacchino to confirm he’ll be back for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2, or whatever it’ll be called. Both said they’d love to do a Star Wars movie (as long as they could do it together), and talked about future projects like The Invisible Woman and Jurassic World, the work load possible for a composer and so much more. It was a lively, interactive AMA and we’ve got some of the highlights below. Read More »

Last we heard from director Matt Reeves, he promised that a Cloverfield sequel was coming. That might still be the case, but it won’t be the next film for the director of Cloverfield and Let Me In. Reeves will next write and direct a film based on the Ray Nelson short story 8 O’Clock in the Morning which was also the basis for the cult classic John Carpenter film They Live. In the short story, the main character wakes up one morning and realizes aliens exist and are all around us, we just can’t see them. In Carpenter’s film, characters saw the aliens through the use of glasses but that won’t be the case here and Reeves’ film is not considered a remake.
