JJ Abrams-produced God Particle may be the third Cloverfield film

10 Cloverfield Lane Mary Elizabeth Winstead

The cat is out of the bag. Producer JJ Abrams was able to surprise the world when it was revealed that the movie he was producing called THE CELLAR was actually a follow-up to the 2008 found footage creature feature CLOVERFIELD and would be called 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE. He fooled us once, but it doesn't look like he'll be able to fool us twice, because an insider close to the Abrams-produced sci-fi thriller GOD PARTICLE has spilled the beans: GOD PARTICLE is the third film in the CLOVERFIELD series.

Directed by Julius Onah from a screenplay by Oren Uziel and Doug Jung, GOD PARTICLE stars David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ziyi Zhang, Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Brühl, and Chris O’Dowd. The story is about 

the efforts of scientists aboard an international space station to tap into a new energy source — the mysterious “God Particle.” They inadvertently trigger catastrophic side effects.

GOD PARTICLE seems like an appropriate title for the film, since that's what's at the center of the story, but I'm guessing the title will be changed to fit CLOVERFIELD in there somehow.

We may officially have a CLOVERFIELD anthology series on our hands, as Abrams' company Bad Robot and the studio behind these films, Paramount, are already planning to release a new CLOVERFIELD movie every year.

I don't know how I feel about this, because I don't think 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE (pictured above) needed to be a CLOVERFIELD movie. That title helped for marketing, but might have also helped push the filmmakers toward adding in an ending that I thought went way off the rails. 

If GOD PARTICLE is indeed part of this series, we're likely to find out its CLOVERFIELD title soon, because it's scheduled to be released in theatres on February 24, 2017.
