JJ Abrams Says 'Cloverfield' Sequel Being Developed, 'Overlord' Not Part Of Franchise

There will be another "Cloverfield" sequel but J.J Abrams says "Overlord", which opens October 26, is not it.

Unlike Paradox, it stands to reason that this untitled Cloverfield film will release in theaters. J.J. Abrams took the stage at the Paramount panel at CinemaCon and set the record straight about Overlord and teased something even bigger. "You will see a lot of words come on screen during this thing that the studios cut together, but one of the words that is not there that should be is 'batsh-.' It is a insane sci-fi action horror film that takes place in World War II, directed by Julius Avery". As a Cloverfield fan, this excites me to hear that we will be getting a new installment to be released in theaters. Julius Avery directs the film.

However, for fans of Cloverfield, Abrams told the crowd that "we're actually developing a true, dedicated Cloverfield sequel" and that unlike the most recent entry in the series, The Cloverfield Paradox, which sold to Netflix and premiered following the Super Bowl, this one would get a theatrical release. That meant theoretically any setting could be changed, but it seems that's not what Overlord will be.

Abrams added that Overlord is not secretly a part of his three-film Cloverfield franchise, but he is hard at work at an actual Cloverfield movie. It only linked up in its ending, and even then no sign of the creature found in the original was seen. Hopefully, Abrams and company will take note of the issues with Paradox and deliver a great Cloverfield adventure. The flick is set against the harrowing backdrop of D-Day and follows a band of paratrooper soldiers who find themselves behind enemy lines, treading into a Nazi bunker, where they discover that the extremists have been implementing supernatural forces to fuel violent, gruesome experiments.
