It is currently unclear if a deal will be made, but if it does, it will come quickly after Paramount’s December deal with Netflix for the new Alex Garland-directed movie, Annihilation.Paramount has produced and released the two fairly low-budget Cloverfield films in the past with great profitability. Both were made for around $25 million and both made $72-80 million each. But apparent the newest film in the franchise cost upwards of $40 million and Gianopulos, who took over last spring, had to make some hard choices.

I don’t know about you, but either way, I’m gonna see this movie when it drops. I really liked the first two and don’t care if they are in the same universe or not. I’m just excited to get a new chapter in this series.
