J.J. Abrams Hints the Possibility of Third 'Cloverfield' Movie

The producer slash director is waiting for the commercial results of '10 Cloverfield Lane' but admits that he has plans for 'something else.'

AceShowbiz - Back in 2008, "Cloverfield" broke into theaters and introduced a gigantic American monster that torn a city apart. Last month, "10 Cloverfield Lane" trailer debuted to everyone's surprise and featured another kind of monster. Apparently, it was a grand plan from J.J. Abrams to create a big "Cloverfield" universe.

While the second "Cloverfield" movie is still a few weeks away from being released, Abrams revealed plans for the third installment. "I would be lying if I didn't say there was something else that, if we're lucky enough to do it, could be really cool that connects some stories," Abrams told Entertainment Weekly. "There is something else that we'd like to do, and hopefully we'll get a shot."

The first movie he created after he realized that America did not have a huge monster like Godzilla to Japan. At the end of the movie, the monster was [Spoiler Alert] presumably killed by the army. Meanwhile, "10 Cloverfield Lane" was originally titled "Valencia" and set up as Twilight Zone-esque series. "Monsters come in many forms" the poster's tagline says. Abrams called it a "blood relative" to "Cloverfield" but comparing them would be "presumptuous".

It looks like the success of "10 Cloverfield Lane" would determine whether a third movie will happen. "This is just this movie, and it's only two films that we're talking about right now. There is something else that we'd like to do, and hopefully we'll get a shot," Abrams said.
