Cloverfield sequel still possible

Paramount is still pushing for ‘’Cloverfield’’ director Matt Reeves to come up with a sequel. And though the ‘’Felicity’’ vet is open to the idea of a follow-up to his monstrous 2007 hit, Reeves says he’s waiting till he and producer J.J Abrams find an idea they really like rather than rushing a cheap money-grabbing follow-up into production.

“Wanting something to happen and coming up with the right idea are two very different things”, Reeves, whose working on a new version of “The Invisible Woman”, tells MTV.

The filmmaker says there have been on-and-off talks about doing one for the past nine months or so. “At times it’s gone dormant and then its come back up again”.

“There are a couple ideas that have potential but we haven’t quite cracked it yet,” he says, adding, “When we were in Japan we thought, wouldn’t it be cool to do it here”.

Reeves says the sequel probably won’t pick up right at the end of the first film, and fix on that flick’s survivors (if there were any). Rather they have discussed a sequel that “wasn’t necessarily right after that night but had intersections with the original.”

Heck, Reeves might not even direct the sequel.

“There was the thought that maybe we’d bring in some young exciting people and we’d produce their take.”

“I don’t know at this point,” Reeves said. “I think if we find something that would be incredibly fun to make and that we would want to watch then that’s what would push it over the top. It’s a weird puzzle.”
