No Cloverfield 2 Coming Soon.

This doesn't mean it won't ever be made, but J.J. Abrams has decided he wants to branch off on to other story ideas with the "Cloverfield" crew.

"We're talking about it [a sequel]," Abrams said, "But the truth is there's another idea that I'd rather do with the same people than do a sequel. It's a whole new thing."

No word on what this upcoming project is, but it looks like "Cloverfield 2" will be shelved for awhile before we get another one. In some sense I'm okay with this decision. "Cloverfield" is a monster movie masterpiece that stands on its own. While I could see it spawning a franchise, and wouldn't mind a sequel (like the original "Godzilla"), it's also innovative enough to be a standalone piece that is looked at for many years. Let it be for now. Perhaps one day the Cloverfans will get a sequel.
