New Cloverfield movie coming next February
Interestingly, there appears to be a new Cloverfield film in production which is set for release in February 2017. Hot on the heels of 10 Cloverfield Lane (one of my favourite films this year), Paramount and JJ Abrams are looking to quickly expand the rather cryptic shared universe between the first and second films.
The new film's working title is God Particle, although you can expect that to change, and centres around a group of astronauts who make a terrible discovery (presumably in space). What's more shocking that this is the rumour that Paramount hopes to release a Cloverfield movie every year from now on. I'm a huge fan of the first 2 movies, and I can't wait to find out more about the mysteries that tie the universe together, but, annualising the franchise could be a mistake. We'll find out more when The God Particle is released in February.
Are you excited by the news? Do you think annualised sequels will overexpose the films?
