J.J. Abrams' GOD PARTICLE Confirmed as Another CLOVERFIELD Film
It's been rumored for awhile that the J.J. Abrams-produced sci-fi film God Particle could take place in the Cloverfield universe, and now that theory has been confirmed. The news comes from The Wrap, which also reports that Abrams and Paramount Pictures are planning more Cloverfield movies and that they hope to release a new film in the franchise every year.
God Particle is said to follow a "team of astronauts who make a shocking discovery and end up fighting for survival in what is described as an altered reality." This is the original plot summary that was released when the movie was first announced:
After a physics experiment with a large hadron accelerator causes the Earth to seemingly vanish completely, the terrified crew of an orbiting American space station is left floating in the middle of now-even-more-empty space. When a European spacecraft appears on their radar, the Americans must determine whether it’s their salvation, or a harbinger of doom.
The film features a great cast that includes David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris O'Dowd, Daniel Bruhl, Ziyi Zhang, and Elizabeth Debicki.
I think it's kinda cool what Abrams is doing with this Cloverfield universe. I wasn't a big fan of the first movie in the franchise, but I absolutely loved 10 Cloverfield Lane. I know 10 Cloverfield Lane didn't start out as a Cloverfield movie, it was something that it evolved into. It makes me wonder if the same thing happened with God Particle. Either way, we'll be getting more of these films, and I'm curious to see how this next film ends up connecting to the universe.
What do you think about Abrams' and Paramount's plans for the franchise?
