Drew Goddard is about to (finally) unleash his directorial debut Cabin in the Woods on the masses at the South By Southwest, but at the same time, Goddard’s background as a lucrative screenwriter for projects nerdy (like being a staff writer on Buffy, Angel, Lost and Alias) still makes news. To wit, here’s what Goddard told Shock Till You Drop about the potential for a sequel to the found-footage monster movie, Cloverfield.
“I’m in, I’m ready to do it,” Goddard told the site. “Someone call J.J. and tell him to get moving, but because Matt and J.J. and I have been fortunate enough to be busy, it’s hard syncing our schedules up. We’re all very passionate about returning to that world.”
Asked if an idea is on paper, he responded: “If you asked each of us what we wanted to do, you’ll get three different answers, which is how the first film was. The aesthetic of Cloverfield benefits from that. Three voices pulling it. Look, nothing would make me happier than to get the three of us in the room to get started.” He added with a laugh, “But you’ve got this Star Trek thing…”
Stupid Star Trek sequel! … Actually, I don’t know what I’m mad at. I’m not even sure if I’m invested in a Cloverfield 2. But hey, if Goddard and gang can find a new angle, I’d be interested to see what that would be.
