Paramount rolls in the 'Cloverfield'

6 July 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

While unleashing Transformers onscreen this week, Paramount also lifted the lid on a top-secret project in the form of a teaser trailer for a new film, Cloverfield.

Cloverfield, which revolves around a monster attack in New York as told from the point of view of a small group of people, is being produced by J.J. Abrams. It is being directed by Matt Reeves, who co-created Felicity with Abrams, and is written by Drew Goddard, who has worked with Abrams on Lost and Alias.

Paramount greenlighted the project under a veil of heavy secrecy in February, about the same time that Abrams agreed to the take over the directing reins of the new Star Trek film.

The casting process was just as mysterious. No scripts or even scene pages were sent out; agents who were contacted were simply asked if their client wanted to be in the movie or not. Eventually a cast, made up mostly of relative unknowns, was put together; it includes Michael Stahl-David (The Black Donnellys), Odet Jasmin, Mike Vogel (Supercross) and Lizzy Kaplan (The Class).

The movie, which is believed to have a relatively modest budget of about $30 million, began shooting in mid-June in New York. »
