J.J. Abrams Says He Has Bigger Plans for the CLOVERFIELD Franchise
With 10 Cloverfield Lane, J.J. Abrams has taken the next step in expanding his Cloverfield films. The upcoming movie is not a sequel to Cloverfield, but it is connected as it exists in the same universe. It doesn’t sound like 10 Cloverfield Lane will be the last of these films either. In an interview with Variety, the producer and director reveals that he has even bigger plans for the franchise, telling them:
“It’s not just an anthology. There’s something that we’re working on. But it will remain to be seen if we’re given the shot to do it.”
So if the movie does well, you can expect to see these Cloverfield stories start to tie together into something more. At least, that's what I’m taking from Abrams’ comment above. It’s a complete mystery as to what Abrams has planned, but like 10 Cloverfield Lane, I’m sure it will sneak up on us when we least expect it.
Dan Trachtenberg directed the new movie, and you can read our interview with him here. This was his first feature film project, and from what I’ve read in our review, he did a fantastic job bringing this story to the big screen! I can’t wait to see it for myself!
