Cloverfield: New Sequel From Batman TV Series Showrunner Won’t Be Found Footage


A sequel to 2008’s Cloverfield is happening, but unlike its predecessor, it won’t be a found footage movie.This sequel is being written by Joe Barton, the showrunner behind HBO Max’s Batman spinoff show centered around the Gotham City Police Department. It will be produced by original Cloverfield producer, J.J. Abrams, and Bad Robot’s head of film, Hanna Minghella, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This sequel seems to be following in the footsteps of the other Cloverfield universe movies, 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane and 2018’s The Cloverfield Paradox, in that it won’t be a found footage movie like the original Cloverfield. It differs from 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Cloverfield Paradox in that while the other two movies were set in the same universe as the 2008 film, they weren’t directly tied to it.They were originally developed as standalone films devoid of anything that attached them to the Cloverfield universe, but were eventually changed to fit into the universe before each movie’s release.

According to THR, this new movie will be a direct sequel to Cloverfield, which ended on a cliffhanger that left it unclear if the nuclear explosion that occurs in the film’s final moments actually killed the monster terrorizing Manhattan.Matt Reeves, who is currently working on The Batman, was the director of Cloverfield and THR reports that he’s not involved with the sequel. He made Cloverfield for $25 million and it went on to make $172 million at the box office. With this sequel dropping the generally-cheaper found footage approach, it’s easy to see this movie’s budget rocketing past $25 million. Only time will tell if audiences show up to make it as successful as the original.
