Variety is reporting that director Matt Reeves is in early talks with Paramount to helm the CLOVERFIELD sequel. This comes as no surprise considering the first CLOVERFIELD cost an estimated $25 million to make (and market) and earned $46 million in it’s opening weekend, setting a record for the Martin Luther King Day weekend. Reeves was currently putting together THE INVISIBLE WOMAN with GreeneStreet Films, but it’s most likely that CLOVERFIELD 2 will come first. More details below!

From the Variety report:

" Matt Reeves is in early talks with Paramount to direct a "Cloverfield" sequel, and he has also made a deal with GreeneStreet Films to direct "The Invisible Woman."

Timing of the projects will depend on how quickly Paramount can complete discussions with Reeves, producer J.J. Abrams and scribe Drew Goddard to scare up another monster tale for the "Cloverfield" sequel. There’s a good chance the sequel will be Reeves’ next film, in which case he will direct "The Invisible Woman" afterward.

"Woman" is a Hitchcock-style thriller that probes the mind of a former beauty queen who turns to a life of crime to protect her family.

Reeves wrote the script and will produce with Abrams and GreeneStreet’s John Penotti, Fisher Stevens and Tim Williams."
