J.J. Abrams Producing Supernatural World War II Film

J.J. Abrams’s Bad Robot has just hired Julius Avery to direct a film being described as a World War II supernatural film. Written by Billy Ray (based on a concept Ray and Abrams came up with together), the story follows a pair of paratroopers sent to take out a communications tower during the D-Day invasion. When they get there, they find not just the Nazis they were expecting but something far more supernatural.

Currently using the working title Overlord, the going theory is that this is the fourth Cloverfield film. With the likely third installment, God Particle, coming this fall, it’s not impossible — but we have to remember this is all conjecture. This really could just be about fighting Nazi zombies with zero larger connections.

I guess we’ll find out eventually either way.

The 10 Cloverfield Lane Trailer Looks Scary For More Than One Reason

Paramount slipped the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane (the sequel to 2008’s Cloverfield) into theaters ahead of 13 Hours, and now they’ve posted it online.

And it looks really good.

When speaking with Collider, star Mary Elizabeth Winstead explained the basic premise of the film:

It’s basically my character wakes up in a cellar and I’m being kept down there by John Goodman. He tells me that basically the world is over outside because there’s been a nuclear fall-out. It does have similarity to Faults, in some ways, because you don’t know who’s telling the truth or who to believe. There’s a lot of, who’s manipulating who, and all of that. Tonally, it’s very different, but it has some of those same themes.

If it’s done right, this film could be an amazing psychological thriller with a monster attack just there as background texture. I’m looking forward to finding out.

10 Cloverfield Lane comes out March 11, 2016.
