Despite the huge success of Clover field back in 2008, no direct sequels have yet to be made in the franchise. While a proper Cloverfield 2 is actively being worked on, it was eight years before another film in the franchise was made with 2016’s Klaverveldlaan 10with a third (and poorly received) film, 2018’s The Cloverfield Paradox, arriving later. Talking to Chris Killian of ComicBook.com in an exclusive interview for the 15th anniversary of Clover fieldwe asked director Matt Reeves if he would ever consider returning for another film in the series, and in his response he hinted at the sequel, confirming his own enthusiasm for the new film.
“I have no idea,” Reeves said of a possible return to the series. “I’m super excited that we’re going to be doing more, and of course I can’t give you any information about that because that’s the way Cloverfield works. To be honest, you never know what you’re going to do. Although my work is all genre work , I have to feel something personal about it. Cloverfield is very much about my fears.”
He continued: “That was the process that drew me in, that’s what taught me how to film it, how to talk to the actors about what it was, because it was like trying to ground it from that perspective and making it into something crazy, fantastic. , and genre, feel real too… I think if another story came along I was like, ‘Gosh, I have to tell that story.’ It’s not impossible. I wouldn’t say for sure, but I would never say never.”
Under the shadow director Babak Anvari has been hired to direct the new film in the film Clover field series, based on a script written by Joe Barton (The ritual). It was previously said that this new film would not only be a direct sequel to Reeves’ original film, but that it would abandon the found footage motif that the first film used. However, it’s unclear whether that will remain the case, as active development on the film is more secretive than even a regular studio film.
