Wow, talk about some news out of nowhere. Drew Goddard has been sitting down with press to discuss “Cabin in the Woods”, but that hasn’t stopped some people from asking about the status of “Cloverfield 2”. Here’s what he had to say.
And there’s always been talk about Cloverfield 2. Is that still happening?
I hope so. I mean, I’d like it to. Cloverfield was very much a dialogue between J.J. Abrams, Matt Reeves and me. And you need those three parts. It’s just been hard because we’ve been busy. None of us wants to make a movie just for the sake of making a sequel. That’s just not interesting to us. I think we all have ideas of what we want to do, and they’re probably all different. But we need to sit down and get it together. I blame Star Trek.
As 33.3% of that creative unit, do you see it as another found footage film?
It’s a good question. I don’t know. If you’d asked me a year ago I would have said absolutely because I thought that was inherent to it. The thing about Cloverfield that was exciting was that it felt different, and we’d need to find whatever that is. We’d make it feel fresh and new, and if you asked each of us how we were going to do it we’d each have a different answer.
