New Surprise Cloverfield Sequel

Wired

Apparently, during some downtime making Star Wars: The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams his Bad Robot production company were secretly putting together 10 Cloverfield Lane, a follow-up to his 2008 faux-found-footage hit. Featuring John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher, Jr. the movie appears to take place in an underground bunker, where the three idly pass the time until tensions rise, and Goodman finds himself locked outside and facing down…well, we don’t actually get to see what’s out there.

According to Collider, this was originally a post-apocalyptic drama titled Valencia and/or The Cellar, but Abrams told the site the film was always considered a “blood relative” of Cloverfield. “We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.” It was only until late this week—when the 10 Cloverfield Lane teaser started popping up in theaters that the film’s true identity was revealed.

10 Cloverfield Lane opens March 11th.
