Drew Goddard, who was one of the key people involved in bringing the movie Cloverfield to the big screen, has revealed how he is very keen on being involved in a Cloverfield sequel. However, Drew admitted that it is difficult to get all of the relevant people in the same room at the same time.
Goddard explained, “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.”
He then addressed whether the sequel would take on the same style as the original Cloverfield movie.
Drew added, 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.”
He continued, “I’m in, I’m ready to do it. Someone call J.J. and tell him to get moving, but because Matt and J.J. and I have been fortunate enough to be busy, it’s hard syncing our schedules up. We’re all very passionate about returning to that world.”
So there you have it. Cloverfield 2 is definitely on the radar for Drew Goddard but it is just a case of getting everybody else in the same room. With Star Trek 2 not due out until next year, we could have to wait until 2015 to see a Cloverfield sequel.
