New Cloverfield movie casts Babak Anvari as director

It looks like Cloverfield’s name will live on in a new movie with Babak Anvari directing. Deadline reports that a new Cloverfield movie is headed to Paramount as they look to revive the franchise. The script will be written by Joe Barton with JJ Abrams producing Bad Robot, along with Hannah Minghella and Jon Cohen. Bryan Burk, Matt Reeves and Drew Goddard will serve as executive producers.

The 2008 film Cloverfield reinvented the found footage genre by placing it in a science fiction setting. It dominated the box office earlier in the year and established Matt Reeves as a director to watch, which we obviously did. Batman received a ton of critical acclaim and big box office numbers in March.

The viral marketing campaign for the original Cloverfield, along with The Dark Knight, ushered in a modern era of clever, Internet-based promotion style that has been emulated dozens of times since. A sequel of sorts was made with 10 Cloverfield Lane, which acted more like a horror movie. That was followed by The Cloverfield Paradox in 2018, which debuted on Netflix and attempted to connect to the original more closely than 10 Cloverfield Lane. We’re still not sure what route this new Cloverfield movie will take, or maybe something new and original.

This is director Anvari’s first foray into major studio franchises, but he made a name for himself when his first film, 2016’s Under the Shadow, earned him a BAFTA for Best Newcomer Filmmaker. His second film, Wounds, starring Armie Hammer and Zazie Beets, premiered at Sundance 2019 and Cannes Directors’ Fortnight and finally made its way to Hulu. He recently directed his first major studio film with Netflix’s I Came By, starring George Mackay, Kelly Macdonald and Hugh Bonneville.
