“Cloverfield” Sequel?

September 1, 2011

 – – Whether and when there will be a sequel to the 2008 sci-fi movie Cloverfield is a topic of wild speculation, with no clear answer to either question at present.  I loved the original, although it took several viewings for the film to really grow on me.  Some good movies have had some disappointing or bad sequels, and I would hope that if a sequel is made, it would be worthy of its predecessor without that original essentially being re-made.  Clearly, the “hooks” are there on which a sequel could be mounted, most notably the creature’s apparent survival of even nuclear attack.   Speculations from the fandom have included a film made from the military’s perspective, a prequel, or even a film from the monster’s perspective! 

I am guardedly hopeful that a sequel will eventually be made, although probably not in the near future.   Director Matt Reeves and producer J.J. Abrams have had a variety of other projects, although interest reportedly still exists in eventually returning to the Cloverfield universe…
