We have identified since January final 12 months that Paramount was quietly plotting a brand new entry within the Cloverfield franchise, with Joe Barton aboard to jot down the script. Deadline now reviews that Underneath The Shadow‘s Babak Anvari is directing the movie.
This being a Cloverfield entry, the studio is of course refusing to supply any plot particulars, nor do we all know if it will function a direct sequel to Matt Reeves’ 2008 monster film or one other anthology entry set throughout the similar universe as with 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Cloverfield Paradox, which each started life as unbiased story ideas that have been transformed to work as oblique follow-ups.
And the motion remains to be stunning since Paradox ended up bought to Netflix and launched on a Tremendous Bowl Sunday after only one trailer.
Common Cloverfield producer JJ Abrams is as soon as extra overseeing this one alongside Bryan Burk, Reeves and Drew Goddard (who wrote the primary film).
Anvari’s most up-to-date movie was his greatest to this point, the Netflix thriller I Got here By, however we’re intrigued to see what he does with a Cloverfield title, particularly one written by Barton.
