JJ Abrams talks Cloverfield 4 and is the fifth movie already finished?

February 20th, 2018 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Despite the fact that The Cloverfield Paradox was pulled from theatres and debuted straight on Netflix, it seems the studio has faith in the franchise and isn’t ready to give up on the Cloverfield universe just yet.

A fourth movie into the anthology series called Overlord is already in the can and rumours abound that the Daisy Ridley headlined Kolma is being lined up as the fifth entry in what is becoming a bloated series.  This of course is dependent on how well Overlord is received by audiences but according to Abrahams we are in for a crazy ride.

“Overlord, first of all, its something that I cant wait for you to see, because the director, Julius Avery, has done an amazing job on it but the specifics, you know, we should wait and see but that’s a crazy movie” said Abrahams pumping up the hyperbole in a recent interview.

While details of the movie are being kept under wraps an official synopsis has been released

On the eve of D-Day, American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success. But as they approach their target, they begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. They find themselves fighting against supernatural forces, part of a Nazi experiment

Overlord is directed by Julius Avery (Son of a Gun) and features a cast that includes Jovan Adepo (Fences), Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street), Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones), Dominic Applewhite (The King’s Speech), Pilou Asbaek (Ghost in the Shell), Iain de Caestecker (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), John Magaro (The Big Short), Mathilde Ollivier (The Misfortunes of Francois Jane) and Bokeem Woodbine (Spider-Man: Homecoming).
