New Cloverfield Film Signs Babak Anvari As Director

It looks as though the Cloverfield name will live on in a brand-new movie with Babak Anvari directing. Deadline is reporting that a new Cloverfield film is headed to Paramount as they’re looking to reignite the franchise. The script will be written by Joe Barton with J.J. Abrams producing from Bad Robot, along with Hannah Minghella and Jon Cohen. Bryan Burk, Matt Reeves, and Drew Goddard will executive produce.

The 2008 Cloverfield film reinvented the found footage genre by introducing it to a sci-fi environment. It dominated the box office at the start of the year and established Matt Reeves as a director to keep your eyes on–which we obviously did. The Batman received a slew of critical acclaim, and big box office numbers back in March.

The viral marketing campaign for the original Cloverfield, along with The Dark Knight, ushered in a modern age of smart and Internet-based promotion style that has been emulated dozens of times since then. A sequel of sorts was made with 10 Cloverfield Lane, which acted more like a horror movie. That was followed by The Cloverfield Paradox in 2018 which debuted on Netflix and attempted to connect to the original more closely than 10 Cloverfield Lane. We’re still unsure which route this new Cloverfield film will go down, or perhaps something new and original.

Keanu Reeves Wants To Direct Netflix’s BRZRKR Film

In addition to acting in movies and video games, Keanu Reeves keeps busy with other ventures, including co-writing a comic book called BRZRKR. Netflix is turning the comic book into a film and animated series, and Reeves recently told Collider that he may want to helm the movie himself.

“I know how it’s a lot of work, but the film that I directed, Man of Tai Chi, was born, I became the director because I was part of the writing process, and I didn’t want to hand it over,” Reeves said. “I was like, oh, okay, I have to direct this. I’m not quite there yet on BRZRKR. I have to read the script, but I’m also interested in having a collaborator and what they could bring to it.”

The likelihood of Reeves directing the film seems fairly low even to the actor himself, who says there’s a 33% chance he’ll end up as director. Screenwriter Mattson Tomlin tweeted last week that he’d finished the first draft of the script Reeves referred to in the above quote. Tomlin is also working on a Terminator animated series and, most recently, the script for The Batman 2.

Overwatch 2 – Kiriko Hero Guide

Overwatch 2 is now here, bringing a massive update to the hero shooter. New modes, a new battle pass, and new heroes headline the new game, including a brand-new healer character, Kiriko. While owners of the original Overwatch will have instant access to Kiriko, new players will have to play to earn her, along with some of the original roster, or unlock her instantly by buying the premium battle pass. Here’s everything you need to know about the new healer, Kiriko.

Kiriko overview

Kiriko is a fast-moving healer with a high ceiling. She can continuously heal her teammates with primary fire, the Healing Ofuda. This sends out paper talismans that track down the teammates you are aiming at when firing them. These Ofuda don’t move particularly fast, but Kiriko’s kit is designed around sticking in the firefight, near your teammates. Her abilities give her the chance to move around a ton to avoid being taken down and while her secondary fire, the Kunai, doesn’t provide as much damage as some other healers, its quick fire and reload speed makes it handy enough to take down an enemy that gets too close.
