God Particle Star is Clueless of Film’s Cloverfield Connection
Is there any production company more secretive than J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot? The company refrained from releasing the name of 10 Cloverfield Lane until just two months before the film's release, and the actors were likewise kept in the dark about the movie's connection to the original Cloverfield film. Now it looks like that same characteristic secrecy is being utilized again by the company, as God Particle star, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, recently revealed to Screen Crush that she was clueless concerning the project's connection to the Cloverfield franchise.  

Opening quote
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.
Closing quote


God particle is reported to be a character driven story that centers on a team of astronauts in a space station. The plot will apparently involve the team believing they've destroyed the Earth using a Hadron collider, and the arrival of a group of foreign astronauts that cause trouble for them. Those ideas definitely seem to be in the same vein with the twist-heavy, disaster sci-fi that characterized the first two films of the Cloverfield universe. It will be interesting to see in what ways God Particle connects to them, and if that connection will actually amount to anything substantial.  

God Particle is slated for a release on February 24, 2017.
