Cloverfield Sequel Netflix

Update: Sources have told The Hollywood Reporter that Netflix is in talks to acquire the third untitled Cloverfield movie from Paramount. This means that the sci-fi movie formerly known as The God Particle may not receive a theatrical release. Our original story continues below.

What, exactly, is going on with the untitled third Cloverfield movie?

The movie has seen multiple release date delays and a virtually non-existent marketing that only kicked off with a burgeoning viral campaign last week, mere months before its intended release date. Even then, it’s planned April 2018 release date seemed like an afterthought, changed abruptly over the holidays after not a peep was heard from Paramount and Bad Robot regarding the quick approach of the prior February 2018 release. Could it be part of J.J. Abrams’ and co.’s unorthodox grassroots marketing that it employed for the first Cloverfield and for 10 Cloverfield Lane? Or could it be signs of a troubled production?

A new rumor suggests that it’s the latter. A week after the viral marketing for the new Cloverfield sequel started, rumors claim that the film could be dropped from theatrical release and head straight to Netflix.
