Cloverfield 2 Years Away

In an interview with MovieWeb, director Matt Reeves tells the site that a sequel to Cloverfield is probably years away.
"Cloverfield 2 will most likely not be the next movie because that's still in the really nascent stages. We haven't really had time to get together and talk about what that would be. That journey will probably be a bit longer, when we find that idea that we really get excited about. We're still hatching the story. It has yet to be hatched. It was funny. Someone said to me the other day, 'Yeah, we hear you're going to get the band back together.' I said, 'Yeah, but at this stage, we're just talking about getting the band back together. We actually haven't gotten the band back together.'

I really want to continue to press and try to make this smaller project that I've been trying to make since before Cloverfield. It's a project called The Invisible Woman. It's sort of a character thriller. It's the anatomy of this woman's desperation. It's the same sort of storytelling that I did in Let Me In. It's an intimate character story, so I'm excited to do that to. Probably what I would do is find the next project and find a way to marry that schedule to the bigger project. So, hopefully, we could do two in a row and then maybe Cloverfield 2."
Cloverfield was really a self contained movie that doesn't necessarily require a sequel unless the goal is to explain the creature which is 50/50 if Abrams is involved. The more time that passes, the less likely a sequel will be made. I would be really shocked if a sequel is ever made as I get the feeling that creatively Reeves, Abrams and the others are simply not interested and all have moved on in such a way that financially they don't have too make a sequel even if the studio wants it.
