As early as January of 2008, there were discussions about a possible sequel to Matt Reeves’ giant monster movie Cloverfield. The franchise expanded in new directions with the great 10 Cloverfield Lane and the not-so-great The Cloverfield Paradox, but a proper follow-up never materialized – until now.
Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot have hired British screenwriter Joe Barton, who was recently brought on as the showrunner of HBO Max’s The Batman TV spin-off, to write the script, and J.J. Abrams will return to produce the movie. Read More »
Just yesterday, Cloverfield producer J.J. Abrams teased that a third film with ties to the original found footage monster movie might be following next month’s forthcoming 10 Cloverfield Lane.
However, today he attempts to keep expectations for the sci-fi flick in check by telling us that despite the connections that are being made between this new movie and the 2008 film, “It’s not Cloverfield 2.” Find out what else J.J. Abrams had to say about the little Cloverfield universe they’re building below. Read More »
When the 10 Cloverfield Lane trailer appeared out of nowhere, moviegoers around the world were shocked to find out that JJ Abrams had secretly produced a sequel to Cloverfield. But is it a sequel? Abrams has called the film “a blood relative of Cloverfield” and the common thought is that it its the second film in a series of anthology movies (think Twilight Zone) that share the same thrilling mystery box tone and feel. But now it seems that JJ Abrams already has a third Cloverfield film in mind, if this one does well. Find out about the potential Cloverfield 3 after the jump.

Audiences were surprised by a new trailer for some kind of sci-fi thriller called 10 Cloverfield Lane when it played without warning before 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, just like the first trailer for the original Cloverfield did when Michael Bay’s Transformers was released.
Since then we’ve learned that the film is a “blood relative” to the found footage monster movie that was directed by Matt Reeves and produced by J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production banner. We don’t entirely know the length to which 10 Cloverfield Lane is connected to Cloverfield, but viral marketing is already starting to bridge the gap between the two films.
Now another trailer for the movie, which premiered during midseason return of The Walking Dead, gives us a little more insight into how Mary Elizabeth Winstead came to be trapped in a bunker with John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr. Watch the quick new 10 Cloverfield Lane trailer below. Read More »

“Preposterous,” “ridiculous” and “completely insane.” Those are the exact words J.J. Abrams uses to describe the fact he’s behind not only Hollywood’s current iteration of Star Trek, but will soon helm Star Wars Episode VII. The director recently conducted a revealing, entertaining interview with Playboy Magazine and in it, he talked at length about the process of deciding to do Star Wars, differentiating that film from Star Trek, sex in his movies, Tom Cruise’s Scientology, the endings of Lost, Fringe, and his role on Revolution. It’s a great interview and I highly suggest you check it out in full.
But let’s concentrate on what Abrams had to say about Star Wars. Playboy flat out asks him about old cast members returning as well as the trilogy’s timeline and Abrams refuses to answer. He does, however, reveal he will be seeking feedback on his decisions from Star Wars creator George Lucas. Lucas’s role in the new films has been, and continues to be, somewhat vague, so this shines a bit of light on his participation. Abrams also discusses the intense pressures of taking on this film and the core questions he’s asking to make sure he doesn’t suffer the same kind of backlash Lucas got for Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
And if that wasn’t enough, Abrams also discusses Cloverfield 2, a possible Alias movie, and admits he still could direct a third Star Trek film. Read More »

Project X, released last Friday, got some people angry, but Warner Bros. isn’t among those irritated by the teen party movie. The low-budget film is considered a success with $21m earned so far, and the studio and producers Todd Phillips and Joel Silver are already putting together plans for a sequel.
Michael Bacall (story and co-writer on the first movie) is working on a sequel treatment with Matt Drake. They started that work before the film was released, and in the wake of its success are moving forward. Until that’s handed in we’re not likely to get any more info, including whether or not any of the main cast (Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper and Jonathan Brown) will return, or if the sequel would focus on different kids. [THR]
After the break, The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard talks about a Cloverfield sequel, Rose Byrne pitches Bridesmaids in Space, and Journey 3 director Brad Peyton hints at the film’s scope. Read More »
