Described by producer J.J. Abrmas as a “blood relative” to 2008 monster movie, Cloverfield, 10 Cloverfield Lane is a cramped thriller about a woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) who comes to trapped in an underground cellar. Fearing she has been abducted by a survivalist (John Goodman) who tells her a chemical attack has left the outside world uninhabitable, she decides she must escape whatever dangers she may face outside. Mirroring the release of the original Cloverfield teaser ahead of Transformers, 10 Cloverfield Lane was debuted in front of the latest Michael Bay project, 13 Hours. It was the long overdue public announcement of a previously secret Bad Robot project, codenamed Valencia. The original pitch and script was written Josh Campbell and Matthew Stuecken, with Whiplash‘s Damien Chazelle brought in for re-writes, presumably to make it a bit more Cloverfield-y, while Dan Trachtenberg (of The Totally Rad Show) directs. 10 Cloverfield Lane hits theatres March 11th.
