J.J. Abrams Talks about a CLOVERFIELD Sequel

by Joey Paur

As you know WonderCon is going on up in the San Francisco right now there their is a lot of geek talk going on up their about a lot of geeky things. It was during the Star Trek panel that J.J. Abrams was asked what is going on with the 'Cloverfield' sequel. I personally didn't care for the first movie, it was just annoying to me. The bad acting, and the shaking camera that made me sick didn't go over very well for me. I liked the monster idea, but thought it was executed poorly. I get a lot of crap from people regarding my stance on the movie but what can I do? It had a couple good moments. But regardless of what I think a sequel is on its way and here is what J.J. Abrams had to say about it.

"We're actually working on an idea right now. The key obviously at doing any kind of sequel, certainly this film included, is that it better not be a business decision. If you're going to do something, it should be because you're really inspired to do it. It doesn't really have to mean anything, doesn't mean it will work, but it means we did it because we cared, not because we thought we could get the bucks. We have an idea that we thought was pretty cool that we're playing with, which means there will be something that's connected to 'Cloverfield,' but I hope it happens sooner than later because the idea is pretty sweet."

What a great response! In the end isn't that what making movies is supposed to be about? Having fun, and doing something you love because you think it's a cool idea. It doesn't matter whether people like the movie or not, it all comes down to is if the filmmakers believe in their project.
