Abrams Says (Again) That They're Working on Cloverfield 2
This isn't as big of a news story as you might be expecting, but it is interesting nonetheless. J.J. Abrams appeared on the National Board of Review red carpet earlier this week where MTV talked with him briefly. Abrams mainly joked about how the next Star Trek will be "all about the Gorn," but he also made one very interesting statement regarding Cloverfield 2. It wasn't much, but here's what he said: "We're working on something right now with that and again, you know, it's early stages." It's interesting news because this is one of the first times recently that J.J. Abrams has mentioned that they've actually got something going.
Our last update on Cloverfield 2 was published last March, and we asked if J.J. Abrams had even made any progress on the sequel? But back then he said "we're actually working on an idea right now" anyway, but I guess it's good to know it's still moving along. Like I said, not much, but Cloverfield fanatics may jump at this opportunity to start discussing the sequel again. And I should point out a mysterious comment (#17) left on our post about the other secret Abrams project mentioning that a VFX company he had worked for had already started bidding on a Cloverfield sequel. Could we see something happen with this soon?
