Cloverfield made $41 million in its first weekend and it looks like they shot it on a cell phone. So it’s a real shocker that they’re making a sequel.
Variety is reporting the Cloverfield director Matt Reeves is "in talks" to direct the sequel, and that he’ll also be directing The Invisible Woman.
Timing of the projects will depend on how quickly Paramount can complete discussions with Reeves, producer J.J. Abrams and scribe Drew Goddard to scare up another monster tale for the "Cloverfield" sequel. There’s a good chance the sequel will be Reeves’ next film, in which case he will direct "The Invisible Woman" afterward.
"Woman" is a Hitchcock-style thriller that probes the mind of a former beauty queen who turns to a life of crime to protect her family.
I hope they finish the script soon! Annoying kids from an MTV reality show running from monsters on poorly filmed camcorder is the next big thing in cinema, I’ve always said.
