According to reports over at Collider and Slash Film, J.J. Abrams just unleashed a heck of secret from the folks at Bad Robot. A rumored project with Dan Trachtenberg — the filmmaker behind the short film Portal: No Escape — now has an official title: 10 Cloverfield Lane. And yes, it’s a sequel to 2008’s Cloverfield.
Collider reached out to Paramount for some confirmation on the rumors, receiving an exclusive message from J.J. Abrams himself on the project:
“The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield. The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”
