'Cloverfield 2' Update: Matt Reeves And J.J. Abrams Haven't Found Right 'Idea' Yet
MTV News caught up with Reeves today to chat about the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of "Let Me In" (expect more detailed info on those special features — specifically the car crash sequence — soon) and naturally had to ask about the progress on "Cloverfield 2."
"We would love to do it, we just haven’t figured out the idea that we want to do yet," Reeves said honestly. "J.J. [Abrams] has been very busy with 'Super 8' and he’s really busy with it now, obviously because they’ve got a release date to make and he’s busily working in editorial," he explained.
Reeves went on to say that the chief obstacle in getting the project under way is finding the time to work on it, since all invested parties are now busy working on other projects.
"Drew Goddard, he made a movie in the interim which hasn’t come out yet called 'Cabin in the Woods,' and he’s now writing a movie for Steven Spielberg called 'Robopocalypse,'" Reeves said. "So everybody is very, very busy, but we do constantly talk about trying to find a moment to get together so we can sit down and talk about what we think would be the best version of doing something like that because we think it would be really fun to do. Hopefully we’ll have time in the near future to start talking about it."
Reeves added that although they're all distracted by other things, he does think about the sequel frequently.
"It’s always in the back of my mind. It’s always there," he said and advised fans eager for the second installment to send their good vibes his way at any time.
