'God Particle' Star Doesn't See the Connection to 'Cloverfield'
God Particle has been confirmed as the next entry into the unorthodox Cloverfield franchise, though its star Gugu Mbatha-Raw has told ScreenCrush in an interview that she doesn't see the connection.
I actually have no idea. That is news to me. When I did the project, it was a total standalone sci-fi, space thriller. So I couldn’t tell you how it’s connected. I don’t know if that’s just a rumor.”
TheWrap confirmed that connection recently, though whether the star is being kept in the dark or the film doesn't actually have anything to do with Cloverfield is unclear.
Prior to 10 Cloverfield Lane, J.J. Abrams indicated that he wants to create a kind of anthology film series using the Cloverfield tagline, with standalone tales connected by an underlying similarity.
God Particle is out February 24, 2017, and we'll get a trailer presumably soon enough to start hopefully answering some questions.
