Cloverfield 2

Matt Reeves said here to MTV News about the follow up to "Cloverfield," that "the studio of course wants it [a sequel] to happen. 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. When we were in Japan we thought, wouldn’t it be cool to do it here. 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. 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."
