They sure don't give up on this franchise.

Paramount Developing A True, Dedicated Cloverfield Sequel

Quote:
The studio intends to push forward with this intriguing cinematic universe and tonight, they’ve announced that they’re developing a proper Cloverfield sequel. It’s important to note that this is a completely different project from Overlord (which, as it turns out, won’t be part of the franchise, after all). Details are scarce at this early stage, but during their presentation at CinemaCon, Paramount noted that the follow-up will be coming soon to theaters and is a “true, dedicated sequel” – unlike 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Cloverfield Paradox, which were more standalone entries that simply had a few ties to the original.

Meh. I wasn't all that impressed with the first one.

10 Cloverfield Lane was good. Doesn't need a sequel though.

They see it's time to jump back on the kaiju bandwagon thanks to Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Cloverfield was alright but as far as a modern-day big monster movie it falls short because no beastie chooses to exclusively terrorize uptown and downtown.

It fell short for me because the supposed heroes were all so unlikeable. I was rooting for the monster throughout.

You mean there are people who don't root for the monsters in kaiju cinema? Where are these fools? I will have words with them.

10 Cloverfield Ln didnt have any HUGE kaiju though, it was human sized aliens, and ships.

As a huge Kaiju fan, I thought the first film provided a good first person chaotic look at what a situation like thst was like. 10 Cloverfield lane was good suspense, though John Goodman and Mary Winstead being in it alone was worth watching.

A true sequel would need to go further then just more monster wrecking things like in the first film.

No, not that one. When they see they're going to produce a "true, dedicated sequel," that means they're going to make a new movie with one or more giant kaiju.
