Over the next couple of weeks we are going to be hearing a lot about J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek restart. We all believed that this would be his next movie but according to AICN we will be seeing another Abrams movie before Trek is released.
How is this possible you ask?
Well apparently he has shot a film completely in secret. The movie in question is Cloverfield and the word is it’s a big giant monster movie that will see it’s trailer possibly attached to Transformers. Yes the movie is that far down the road.
More from AICN…
Well, as I understand it, most of the film is going to be shot using home video cameras, as if from the point of view of real people who are experiencing an attack on New York. It’s designed as a fairly small picture, all things considered, and right now, they’re working to make sure the script is going to deliver some wild thrills (like an earthquake that levels Manhattan or an oil tanker flipping over by the Statue of Liberty), but that it’s not suddenly going to turn into a giant $150 million movie.
I have to say if this turns out to be true, a big congratulations must surely go to Abrams for managing to get through pre-production and filming without anyone knowing about it. In this day and age, that is a near impossible task.
Hope this is true, the movie sounds like so much fun and it should prove to be a pleasant surprise for us next year (or maybe later this year, who knows?).
