CLOVERFIELD 4 DONE BEFORE 3???!!!
J.J. ABRAMS FILM OVERLORD IS THE 4TH INSTALLMENT IN THE CLOVERFIELD FRANCHISE (AND FINISHED BEFORE THE 3RD)
Following the insane marketing campaign of the first Cloverfield film and the intense, yet believable backstory behind 10 Cloverfield Lane, the fourth installment of J.J. Abrams’ Cloverfield franchise (I honestly didn’t know it was J.J. Abrams’ brain-child until the sequel) has possibly been leaked.
The confirmed third installment of the universe (formerly or still called God Particle), despite being pushed back repeatedly, is slated for an April 18th release this year. The strange fact being the film has a release date with no marketing or trailer in sight. To further twist the matter, Abrams recently wrapped up another production that is now believed to be “Cloverfield 4”. There’s even more information on this film available than on “Cloverfield 3”.
This mysterious fourth film is titled Overlord and is set in World War II, a few days before the Allies attack on D-Day. While traveling through a Nazi occupied French town, American soldiers are forced to unravel a supernatural secret: Hitler has joined forces with some supernatural/demonic entity and plans to repel the Normandy invasion to prevent the Allies from winning the war.
Overlord stars Joven Adepo (Fences) and Wyatt Russel (Black Mirror) with the script done by Billy Ray (The Hunger Games) and Mark L. Smith (The Revenant). It’s directed by Julius Avery (Son of a Gun) despite Abrams and Lindsey Weber co-producing.
Whatever Abrams is up to it appears to be working. 10 Cloverfield Lane was released eight years after the original film, yet the next two follow-ups could be released in one year (and only two years after the previous). Furthermore, Abrams and Paramount Pictures have started talking to Netflix for a distribution deal. Depending on how this plays out, Abrams could release both films in the same year and on the same platform (or different). This weird time frame and varied distribution is right Abrams’ alley.
Overlord is slated for an October 26, 2018 release but who knows anymore?
