AICN Creature FX Rumor

As a sign of the lack of information regarding Cloverfield, AICN has run this unconfirmed rumor on who may or may not be working on the creature effects for Cloverfield.

I was at ADAPT2007 in Montreal today (a fair where high-profile people come and speak about their work on movies, games and television) and Phil Tippett's (from Star Wars, Starship Troppers and Robocop fame to name a few) Tippet Studios are working on a very big hush-hush project with J.J. Abrams which he wouldn't name.

Since he mostly does creatures, could it be something for that untitled JJ movie coming soon? Considering Tippett's track record for creature design and animation, I think we'll be in for a treat!

If you use this, call me Fronsac
Considering the film is wrapped and in its post-production phase, the creature design phase would already been completed and now it would just be implementing and touching it via CGI in the film?

New Title "Wreck"?

According to Bloody Disgusting, the new title of Cloverfield is Wreck. Monstrous was supposed to be the title but was changed when the news hit the web. Personally, I think Abrams should consider sticking with the original title. If this rumor is true, its a pretty crappy title, especially compared with Monstrous.

From the site:
I can pretty much guarantee that by us reporting this, it will either be denied or changed - again. We learned exclusively here at Bloody-Disgusting that JJ Abrams' monster movie was in fact going to be titled "Monstrous", but was changed the second it hit the web (man we all gossip way too much!) Now it's our turn to ruin a possible title for the Matt Reeves' helmed giant monster movie, which wrapped last month in Los Angeles and New York... the title just might be..........WRECK
