even if it sounds like a lie 15 years have passed since the premiere of “Cloverfield”The brilliant film from the brainchild of JJBrhams, Drew Goddard and Matt Reeves that spawned its own cinematic universe, was followed by “10 Cloverfield Street” and “The Cloverfield Paradox.”
However, before launching Calle Cloverfield 10it was headed for a sequel cloverfield About which Matt Reeves, one of the fashion directors, is now known thanks to titles such as “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” or “The Batman”.
“When we finished Cloverfield we all had ideas of what the sequel might be. However, our schedules were spinning in opposite directions and we couldn’t do it that way. When 10 Cloverfield Street was shot, I Thought ‘Oh, this is really exciting.” to continue exploring this world”, but initially the idea was to make a sequel”.,
Reeves commented “In the original movie I did that when Hud is on the bridge and the tail rips the Brooklyn Bridge in half, there’s a moment where you see a person filming it and you’re like, ‘Oh, Joe. There’s another perspective on what’s going on. It’s going on that night.” So this was one of my ideas for what could have been the start of another story. A different story with a different perspective. It would be another story of the people who survived that night, so we all talked about those things. We all had ideas, it’s just that our schedules couldn’t line up back. I can never say we won’t do it or we’re working on it because it’s “Cloverfield” and the series rules that it’s not talked about.
When asked if it would be possible to create a surprise title like “Cloverfield”, he commented “It would probably be impossible to do today, but at the time it was a unique idea to do something like this movie that no one had heard of or had a title and suddenly there was a trailer next to Transformers over the 4th of July weekend. . It didn’t occur to me that something like this could be done again.”
