J.J. Abrams Says Cloverfield 2 Will Not Be ‘Literal Sequel’

During a panel at this year’s Comic Con, J.J. Abrams let slip a piece of information about the sequel for Cloverfield. We get the story thanks to SlashFilm:

“During the Comic Con panel for Fringe, someone asked J.J. Abrams if there were any updates on a Cloverfield sequel. Abrams response started off very much in the same way that it did when he was asked about it before, but then he let slip a piece of information that is sure to spark conjecture amongst fans.

“There’s something we’re playing with now that may or may not happen. There’s an idea we have that plays with… it’s not a literal sequel.“

I thought Cloverfield was a great experiment in mainstream Hollywood cinema. They employed some bold techniques, not least of which was the hand-held camera technique, but in my opinion they paid off and it was a very invigorating time at the movies.

However I don’t at all feel there should be a sequel; I think it worked as a one-off type project and to me any addition to it would kind of cheapen the first one. However if there has to be one it’s good they are taking some time to think about it and not just hashing one out for the sake of making quick cash. What do you think about what Abrams said? Like the idea of a sequel and if so do you like the idea that it’s not a traditional one?
