A true Cloverfield sequel is in the works with Joe Barton set to pen the script, according to a report on the Hollywood Reporter. Sources have also indicated that, unlike the original, this will not be a found footage film. One thing we know for sure is that producer, J.J. Abrams, will return hoping to recreate the magic that the original captured.

Cloverfield, released in 2008, did just as the monster did to New York, it destroyed the box office, earning $172.4 million on a budget of just $25 million. Written by Drew Goddard and directed by Matt Reeves, the film starred Lizzy Caplan, Jessica Lucas, T.J. Miller, Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel and Odette Yustman.

The film follows a group of New Yorkers at a going-away party that end up facing the most terrifying night of their lives. A creature the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city, leaving death and destruction in its wake. Using a handheld video camera, the friends record their struggle to survive as New York crumbles around them.
