A movie slated for early 2008, supposedly about a giant monster attack on the city of
Who’s behind it?
J.J. Abrams, Hollywood writer, producer and director. Currently most recognized as one of the creators of the television series LOST. Drew Goddard, a writer and co-executive producer on LOST, will provide the script.
What is known thus far:
- A teaser trailer playing before the Transformers movie begins with amateur video footage of a party in
- The title “Cloverfield” is only a working one and will most likely not be used as the final name of the film.
- One online source makes mention of something simply referred to as “the parasite” in the movie.
- Two cryptic, tie-in websites to the film have recently appeared; both revolve around an individual known as “Ethan Haas”. The first is a blog called “The Truth of Ethan Hass” which consists of posts attempting to discredit mysterious writings and prophecies that make reference to an assault on mankind by “ancient gods”. The second site, ethanhaaswasright.com invites visitors to play a series of interactive games with a mechanical sphere covered with strange, alien-looking symbols (I find it interesting that many of the symbols sort of resemble stylized silhouettes of monsters).
**UPDATE- July 12th**
Apparently, the two aforementioned sites ethanhaaswasright.com and the Truth of Ethan Haas blog have been dismissed by J.J.Abrams himself as having nothing to do with the upcoming movie, although he has mentioned that there are supposedly official "secret tie-in sites" out there waiting to be found.
Sheesh! I'll just wait for the 18th of January when the movie comes out instead.
