Cloverfield Station may be the Next Cloverfield Movie

The loosely-connected sci-fi horror series began in 2008 with Cloverfield, a J.J. Abrams-produced monster movie about a towering alien terrorizing NY. That, and the movie's total lack of advertising and trailers, seemed to spell trouble for the film which, to be fair, was completely shrouded in mystery à la every one of the Cloverfield movies. If the third Cloverfield movie does end up being a Netflix exclusive it means that it could literally drop at any point which just adds to this franchise's mysterious quality. But a new rumor suggests that the theatrical fate of the movie was more dire than anticipated. A sequel of sorts arrived in 2016 with 10 Cloverfield Lane, a Twilight Zone-like thriller only vaguely connected to the original film.

"Cloverfield 3" is set to premiere on April 20.

However, a Reddit thread posits the potential title of the third Cloverfield movie to be Cloverfield Station.

I went to UCLA and I met some very brilliant students and scientists there. Now a fresh new rumor has fueled the fire of yet another shifting release to the JJ Abrams-produced sci-fi/horror flick. It was very attractive to work with all of these wonderful actors. I've always wanted to do a space movie, so I couldn't wait to end up floating in space and solving huge problems.

The movie stars Daniel Brühl, Elizabeth Debicki, Aksel Hennie, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris O'Dowd, John Ortiz, David Oyelowo and Zhang Ziyi as astronauts aboard an American space station who are shocked when they find that Earth has disappeared from view after an accident with the particle accelerator. The astronauts find themselves isolated, and following their frightful discovery, the space station crew must fight for survival. Hypothetically speaking, if Netflix came in and offered $50 million before Paramount even started spending for an ad campaign, why wouldn't the Melrose studio take a guaranteed $10 million profit?
