It’s been rumored since early in the year – the fact that a new thriller, produced by J.J. Abrams and set in a space station was somehow attached to the Cloverfield mythos. The working title of the project was God Particle and confirmation has come that it is indeed Cloverfield 3.
You should easily recall the last little bit of deception from Mr. Abrams – when that little film The Cellar turned out to be 10 Cloverfield Lane and they managed to keep it secret all the way up to the point of premiering the trailer – well, he didn’t try to keep the secret as long this time but still, it’s a bit of surprise to many that a third chapter is soon to be gracing our eyes. Reportedly the film wrapped production in August of 2016 and will tell the tale of a team of folks on the Space Station who stumble upon something that “challenges all they know about the fabric of reality, even as they desperately fight for their survival.”
David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ziyi Zhang, Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel BrÃ¼hl and Chris O’Dowd all star.
Julius Onah directs from a script by Oren Uziel.
We won’t have to wait long for God Particle / Cloverfield 3 as it hits theaters on Feb. 24th.
