Latest Movies: Rumours surface over actual Cloverfield 2….was it actually meant to be a sequel?



We have all been blown away by the news event this week that Cloverfield is finally getting a sequel after all these years and most importantly, it will be out in cinema’s in two months.  It was a wonderful shock, a great story and a stunning surprise, but like all good stories there is always another version and this evening there are reports that 10 Cloverfield Lane was actually not meant to be a sequel to the 2008 cult fav!

A post on Reddit this evening claims that the now much anticipated movie was originally shot as a different film and only the theme of Cloverfield was added on much later after re-shoots.

“This film was originally made under the names Valencia and The Cellar for Paramounts Insurge division (a subsidiary for films made for under 5 million dollars like The Devil Inside), and when Paramount closed it down, this movie (shot and completed) was thrown out to the wind and orphaned. Paramount bought it back up and had Dan Casey and Damien Chazelle do some re-writes so that it would connect to the Cloverfield universe and they went back and did reshoots and add-ons in March 2015 in New Orleans and L.A.”

The argument makes a bit of sense but JJ Abrams himself has stated different.

“The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield. The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”

So there you have it, we have to wait and see for ourselves when 10 Cloverfield Lane is released.
