Those looking forward to the third film in the Cloverfield series are going to have to wait slightly longer, Deadline reports. The film, tentatively titled God Particle, has been pushed back from its initial October 27, 2017 release date to February 2nd, 2018. The news comes on the heels of the new Jigsaw release date, which is set to be released on October 27th instead. Having the two released on the same date would undoubtedly hurt ticket sales of both movies, as they’re geared towards the exact same audience.
This is the third time the next Cloverfield movie has been pushed back. It was initially planned for release on February 24th, 2017. However, an October release date was deemed more favorable so that the studio can have more time to work on post-production. Filming began on June 10th, 2016. The estimated budget for the film is currently 10 million USD.
The IMDb page has the film listed simply as “Cloverfield Movie”. The overview for the Julius Onah-directed film is simple, yet intriguing. In Cloverfield Movie a.k.a. God Particle:
“A shocking discovery forces a team of astronauts aboard a space station to fight for survival while their reality has been altered.”
The movie, currently in post-production, stars Elizabeth Debicki. The actress recently had a role in the blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Daniel Brül, who was a part of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds, will also be starring in the film. J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot film company will be overseeing the project.
