It’s been speculated since it was announced that the film titled ‘Overlord’, a WWII film that sounds like it’s right out of a “Wolfenstein-style” video game, is going to be the fourth film in the Cloverfield universe. It has now been confirmed today by “/Film”, who also notes that filming has been completed for the production.
This comes on the heels of rumors that Netflix is working to acquire ‘God Particle’ (currently rumored to be titled ‘Cloverfield Station’), which could see the first trailer airing during this Sunday’s Super Bowl. ‘God Particle’ (Cloverfield Station) is due for release April 20, 2018
Synopsis: “On the Eve of D-Day, a group of 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.”
Directed by Julius Avery, Overlord stars Jovan Adepo and Wyatt Russell (“Black Mirror”), with Jacob Anderson (“Game of Thrones”), Dominic Applewhite (The King’s Speech), Pilou Asbaek (“Game of Thrones”), Iain de Caestecker (“Marvel’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.”), John Magaro (The Big Short), Mathilde Ollivier (The Misfortunes of Francois Jane), and Bokeem Woodbine (“Fargo”).
Paramount Pictures has the film scheduled for release on October 26, 2018.
