RUMOR: Cloverfield 4 Is Not Only A WWII Thriller, But Has Reportedly Already Been Filmed

Around March of last year, there were rumblings about a Bad Robot project called Overlord. The film was a World War II thriller, and it was thought to potentially be yet another entry in the unique Cloverfield franchise, which is set to get its third entry later this year (potentially from Netflix).

In case you forgot (which you probably did, because I certainly did), here’s what this film will be about:

“On the eve of D-Day, 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.”

So why are we bringing this up now? According to sources from the outlet /Film, Overlord is not only indeed Cloverfield 4, but has also finished its production. Like 10 Cloverfield Lane and Cloverfield 3, Overlord is a project that started out as a completely separate story that was later converted into a Cloverfield entry, which is something I think contributes to how well these films stand alone.

Given that Cloverfield 3 (Or Cloverfield Station or whatever the hell it ends up being called) is still set to come out this April, we’re not sure when this Julius Avery-directed entry will hit, but we’re sure there will be plenty more twists and turns along the way, depending on how the Netflix deal turns out.
