Well, this is exciting news. According to The Wrap the latest Bad Robot production ‘God Particle’ will be included in the now growing(and tangible) Cloverfield universe. ‘God Particle’ will be about a group of astronauts who make a “shocking discovery” and end up fighting for survival in what is described as an altered reality.
Last I heard that shocking discovery was a Particle that caused the Earth to disappear leaving the astronauts stranded in space. Detailed in The Wrap’s report Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot are teaming up to develop films under the Cloverfield banner that will be released Pixar-esque every year.
This is very exciting news following the success of this year’s surprise follow-up 10 Cloverfield Lane. I do like the idea of there being multiple films sharing the Cloverfield title without actually being connecting.
This could be the film anthology series many have been asking for? Different original stories that all have a monster or two in common. Also, a Clover-Verse would possibly provide a proving ground for up and coming directors to make their mark, similar to Dan Trachtenberg and Matt Reeves.
Who knew that 2007’s Cloverfield would breed such interesting concepts and films in a industry desperately needing them. But, with all this being announced, can we get a proper sequel the first?
