As you may know, neither 10 Cloverfield Lane nor The Cloverfield Paradox started life as Cloverfield sequels. Now, well over a decade after the Cloverfield monster first smashed its way through New York City, a true Cloverfield sequel is finally in the works from Paramount and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bad Robot has tapped Joe Barton (The Ritual) to write a script for the sequel, which will not be a found footage film. THR mysteriously notes that “Details of the take are being kept hidden under Central Park.”

Directed by Matt Reeves and released in 2008, Cloverfield’s clever viral marketing campaign and gritty scares skyrocketed it to overnight success, raking in $172 million worldwide against a $25 million budget. The film followed a group of friends venturing into the streets of NYC on a rescue mission after a giant monster attacks.

THR notes that Reeves is not involved in the sequel. Abrams and Hannah Minghella will produce.
