"Cloverfield 2" Rising

Matt Reeves, director of the outstanding monster-smash "Cloverfield," is currently in talks with Paramount to do a sequel. It looks like Paramount wants a sequel as soon as possible, though Reeves has also made a deal with Greenstreet Films to direct "The Invisible Woman."

I would guess it depends on how fast Abrams and his team can get ideas together for Reeves to direct a sequel-- It's likely that the "Cloverfield" sequel will be Reeves's next movie, but if he doesn't get the material in time "The Invisible Woman" could come first. Then there's the writer's strike of course. No one is sure how that will end at this point. In any case, I'm all up for a "Cloverfield" sequel. The first movie breathed new life in to the giant monster genre and was a powerful metaphor for today's concerns. Bring on another Reeves! I sure can't wait.
