Breaking "Cloverfield" News - Possible Paramount Memo Leak

Tuesday, July 17, 2007

Dear Constant Reader,


Warner Bros. Neighborhood Memo Leaks “Cloverfield” Story Element That is Not Really Surprising

Living across the street from a major motion picture studio like I do, means you frequently get little notes in your mailbox explaining why tonight you might hear “simulated gunfire,” a “simulated helicopter crash,” or see smoke from a “simulated fire.” Rarely do these notes elaborate on what will burn or who’s getting shot. Which brings me to “Cloverfield” a.k.a. The Super Secret Untitled J.J. Abrams Project, the (totally awesome) teaser for which ran before Transformers and has resulted in much speculation about what’ll be attacking New York on 1-18-08 and how it will play out. Well, last week I got this note in my mailbox:

“…on Thursday July 12 and Friday, July 13 Paramount Pictures will be filming night scenes for their feature film, “Cloverfield,” on the Hennessy Street set on the Main Lot. The filming will simulate an army firefight – including gunfire (blanks) and explosions (powder flash). Any sound-related effects will be completed before 10:00 p.m.”

So there you go. “Cloverfield” will feature an “army firefight.” But that usually happens after monsters attack New York. Sadly I was in Fargo so I have no report of how how it went down or if the locals heard the mysterious roar.
