The mysterious film with a World War 2 backdrop, “Overlord”, which is currently set for a 2018 release has been officially confirmed as being the 4th film in the “Cloverfield” franchise. This comes just days after we announced that Netflix is in talks to get their hands on the 3rd film in the franchise “God Particle” or “Cloverfield Station” as it has been recently referenced as. Rumor has it we could see a trailer for the 3rd installment during super bowl commercials this year.
The films plot as it stands reads something like this: “On the eve of D-Day, a group of American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success, but as they approach their target, they begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. They find themselves fighting against supernatural forces, part of a Nazi experiment.”
Directed by Julius Avery, the film stars a known cast of solid actors and actresses including: Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Jacob Anderson, Dominic Applewhite, Pilou Asbaek, Iain de Caestecker, John Magaro, Mathilde Ollivier and Bokeem Woodbine.
The current release plan for this installment is to drop on October 26th, 2018, through Paramount Pictures. However, with the 3rd installment happening likely with Netflix it is possible they will try to sink their hooks in for this 4th film as well. Only time will tell. We will deliver more details on this story as it develops.
