This is the most recent I could find,however it is from March of this year.
Total Film interviewed director Matt Reeves on the status of the giant monster movie film. Reeves indicated they are working on the plot with the help of producer J.J. Abrams.
“Well, you are going to see it – we just don’t know when [laughs],” explained Reeves. “At the moment we are talking about the story quite a lot. Drew Goddard, who wrote the original, is going to pen the sequel and J.J. Abrams is very much involved. However, the three of us have been so busy that getting the right idea together has been taking a long time.”
One of filming techniques that made the original “Cloverfield” different from other monster movies was its real-time shaky camera. So there are some discussions on how to shoot the sequel with same technique.
“You see, that’s a difficult part: we want it to be shot like the first but how can you continue that idea successfully for a second time?” he said.
The original 2008’s “Cloverfield” managed to gross over $80 million domestically on a film budget of $25 million. The original film followed a group of friends who tried to escape a giant monster attack in New York City.
“Cloverfield” starred Lizzy Caplan (“127 Hours,” “Hot Tub Time Machine”), Jessica Lucas (“She’s the Man,” “Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son”), T.J. Miller (“How to Train Your Dragon,” “She’s Out of My League”), Michael Stahl-David (“The Black Donnellys,” “No Deal”), Mike Vogel (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” “She’t Out of My League”) and Odette Annable Yustman ("Unborn," "You Again").
In the past, Reeves previously directed television shows such as “Felicity,” but he gained some more success and reputation with big screen films by directing the original “Cloverfield” and last year’s “Let Me In.”
“We have a lot of affection for the original and the sequel can’t just be the same thing,” he concluded. “But that is tricky when you need to have a monster destroying stuff once again.
Paramount Pictures will be the distributor for the film and it is scheduled for theater release in 2014.
