The man behind the myth, the legend, and the crazy week full of “Cloverfield” stuff, has come forward to talk, and he’s emailed the geeks over at Aint-it-Cool-News.com to do it. Here’s what he had to say (and apparently this really is Abrams, since I’m guessing AICN’s head geek has spoken to him before and would know, etc):
Thanks for your support of our little movie. I can’t wait to talk to you more about it — of course, knowing you, by the time we talk you’ll know more than I will.
Regarding the online stuff you posted: yeah, we’re doing some fun stuff on the web. But, obviously, if the movie doesn’t kick some massive ASS, who gives a rat’s about what’s online? So as you can imagine, we’re focusing mostly on THAT. For what it’s worth, the only site of ours that people have even FOUND is the 1-18-08.com site. The others (like the Ethan Haas sites) have nothing to do with us.
Stay cool the rest of the summer — and thanks per usual for AICN!
So J.J. Abrams is saying that the Ethan Haas sites aren’t his? Yeah, J.J., I’m gonna believe that. Then why did Paramount go through YouTube pulling down all those videos people were posting that they got from the Ethan Haas sites? Uh huh.
Anyways, AICN seems to believe that Abrams is hinting that there are MORE Cloverfield (or whatever it’s called) sites out there, but no one has found it yet.
Hmm, curiouser and curiouser…
