Cloverfield finally got a sequel? Did anyone know this was coming?
The original was a fairly successful film, and a sequel seemed natural. Yet one never seemed to show up.

It’s not clear what kind of sequel this is, however, since it doesn’t deal with any of the same people from the original. This new film stars John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and John Gallagher, Jr.
The project has been in the works for a while, but the title was kept under wraps. J.J. Abrams love him some secrets. He released a statement via Collider:
“The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield. The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”
Seems more like a spin-off, or a film taking place in the same ‘universe’ as the original film, but not directly connected to it.
