For those of you who think Cloverfield 2 is secretly being filmed right now, I'm pretty sure you're full of crap. Not only would we have heard something by now, but Paramount just doesn't have any solid plans finalized yet. Now J.J. Abrams adds a few more confusing details into the mix, but pretty confidently says it ain't happening. At least, he confirms that there are no real plans as of yet. SciFiWire caught up with Abrams very recently and asked him about any progress on the sequel. His answer: "We're talking about it… But the truth is there's another idea that I'd rather do with the same people than do a sequel. It's a whole new thing." Sad news for all you Cloverfield fanatics…
"So my dream is to work with [Goddard and Reeves] again, but do something that's [new]. Having said that, Drew and Matt both, separately, have really good ideas for what [Cloverfield 2] could be. So I don't know. We'll see. I know the studio wants it."
Thankfully if you kept reading, you'll see that Abrams added a bit more. This does not mean the project is 100% dead and won't ever happen. This is just a quick statement from Abrams in a recent interview. For all we know, Paramount is putting together the elements of a sequel and just hasn't sprung all of the complete details on Abrams yet. There are so many different possibilities and so many unknowns, that this isn't any real confirmation. That doesn't mean we can't put it out here for all of you to discuss, but from the sounds of it, Cloverfield 2 currently isn't going to see the light of day… at least for a while.
