Okay, we have a little more information about the JJ Abrams produced top-secret monster movie which is being referred to as Cloverfield. We’re being told that this is just a deceptive production title, and the movie’s real title will be something different. But don’t expect to see any title on the film’s teaser trailer which is attached to Transformers. Paramount reps are even pretending like they’ve never even heard of the project.
AICN reports that long time Abrams collaborator Drew Godard (Lost, Alias, Angel, Buffy) wrote the script which will be directed by Matt Reeves. Reeves was a writer on the Abrams helmed Felicity, where he also directed five episodes. Reeves also directed the pilot episodes of Miracles and Conviction. His only feature film credit is the horrible 1996 David Schwimmer/Gwyneth Paltrow romantic comedy The Pallbearer. He was also the screenwriter on Under Siege 2, Future Shock, and The Yards.
So far all we know is that the whole film is shot with consumer handheld video cameras, and involves a “parasite” monster invasion in New York City.
