Matt Reeves hopes for Cloverfield 2

Matt Reeves says he's hoping to make a Cloverfield sequel

Matt Reeves has revealed he hopes to make Cloverfield 2 - though he admits the sequel is still a long way off.

Speaking at the premiere of his latest movie Let Me In at the London Film Festival, the director said he had yet to have meaningful talks with producer JJ Abrams, who is currently working on sci-fi Super 8 with Steven Spielberg.

He said: "We'll see. It's very, very early right now. JJ's still making Super 8 right now and I've just finished this [film], so there's literally no news yet. But hopefully we'll find the right idea and we'll do it."

Matt also told of how his desire to make Let Me In - which came after he was inspired by John Ajvide Lindqvist's Swedish novel Let The Right One In - was nearly thwarted by not being able to find the right actors until eventual stars Chloe Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee, who were unknown quantities at the time, auditioned for their roles.

He said: "I started searching for the actors and I became worried that we weren't going to find them. Literally, when we found these two I was like 'we can make this movie'. They were extraordinary.

"Everyone thinks that we cast them after seeing Kick-Ass and The Road but they weren't out yet. Their auditions were so beautiful."

He said Let Me In should not be compared to Twilight, despite being about a vampire.

He explained: "Unlike Twilight, which is so stylised and sort of grand, this is very intimate and realistic tale."
