Reeves: Cloverfield 2 in the Cards


No ties to Super 8 project

MTV talked to Cloverfield director Matt Reeves, whose Let Me In opens October 1, about the possibility of a sequel to the 2008 monster film.

He said that, while himself and producer J.J. Abrams are concentrating on other things right now, there’s definitely still interest in returning to that universe.

“It really isn’t the moment for [the sequel] to go any further than it has, but it continues to be a priority for both of us,” Reeves said. “J.J. is very immersed in putting together ‘Super 8.’ He’s… in pre-production and really, really passionately getting that together. And I’m passionately finishing ‘Let Me In.'”

He also assured there’s no connection between Cloverfield and Super 8.

“There literally is no connection whatsoever,” he added. “It’s just a really cool idea for a film. I know what [J.J. is] doing and it’s amazing.”

Cloverfield cost just $25 million to make and earned $170 million worldwide.
