After exceeding expectations at the box office it is no surprise that there is now talk of Bad Robot and Paramount making a sequel to monster movie Cloverfield.
In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly both producers JJ Abrams and Bryan Burk talk about sequel possibilities and where it might go.
Bad Robot producer JJ Abrams tells EW that he's in no rush to get a sequel rolling because he wants to make sure it keeps the integrity of the original. "I wouldn't want to rush into it because of the heat on the movie - Id want to do something that is true to the spirit of what we made."
Producer Bryan Burk adds that the creative team "has fleshed out an entire backstory which, if we're lucky, we might get to explore in future films."
EW writes that possible plots include an attack on another city or telling the same New York event from another perspective.
In CLOVERFIELD, five young New Yorkers throw their friend a going-away party the night that a monster the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city. Told from the point of view of their video camera, the film is a document of their attempt to survive the most surreal, horrifying event of their lives.
