Paramount Dates 'Cloverfield' Imax Film, Removes J.J. Abrams' 'God Particle' From Schedule

’10 Cloverfield Lane’ (Paramount)

By Ashley Lee, The Hollywood Reporter

Paramount will wide release a new Cloverfield film in Imax on Oct. 27, the studio announced Thursday.

Interestingly enough, God Particle — another film from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, which was previously set for a Feb. 24 release — was removed from the release schedule.

The switch implies that God Particle is, in fact, the next title of the Cloverfield-connected universe. The same was done when the studio dated 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane. Paramount did not respond to a request for comment on whether it’s true this time as well.

God Particle (or the new Cloverfield film?) stars David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris O’Dowd, Daniel Bruhl, Zhang Ziyi and Elizabeth Debicki as crewmembers aboard a space station who find themselves alone after a scientific experiment causes Earth to disappear. When a space shuttle appears, the space station crew must determine if those aboard are friend or foe. Julius Onah is directing the movie.

The new Cloverfield entry will open against Lionsgate’s latest Saw installment.
