There have been a few rambling here and there about a Cloverfield sequel in the last few weeks, but nothing concrete. However, Variety is reporting that Matt Reeves is already in early talks to direct a sequel, which may even take precedent over his originally planned next project - The Invisible Woman.
It's not surprising that Paramount would be anxious to make a sequel. Cloverfield broke records in it's opening weekend and even though the box office has slowed, the movie has already turned a healthy profit. Not to mention the movie has yet to release worldwide, including the UK and Spain which it opens in tomorrow.
The interesting question will be what form will the sequel take? Will it be the same event filmed by another camcorder in NY (or some other location), or a more traditional movie that could provide the answers to some the the original film's lingering questions.
