The movie just came out and sequel rumblings have been loosed upon us! We are made aware of this possibility from the mouth of director Matt Reeves thanks to our friends at Boody Disgusting:
If they are going to do another film on handy cams – I am not on board at all. I saw Cloverfield last night and was sea sick by the end of the movie. It was a cool idea, but once was enough. I would have loved to have seen different cameras in this film rather than just following the adventures of one group. I certainly don’t want to see the same story again from another camera as a sequel – this would not interest me in the slightest.
If they are going to do a sequel, use standard film equipment and make a motion picture that follows the Cloverfield monster. Show the origin, how it comes to earth and then follow his wake of destruction – tell the story of the monster. That is a bitchin’ sequel and a fresh take on the events of the day.
Cloverfield was a cool idea, and I am all for another monster movie; but have no interest in another 90 minutes of a camcorder on the run.
