10 Cloverfield Lane is an upcoming 2016 American science fiction mystery thriller film and the directorial debut of Dan Trachtenberg. The film is written by Josh Campbell, Matthew Stuecken, and Damien Chazelle and stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman and John Gallagher, Jr. The film started as a script titled The Cellar, but during production under Bad Robot Productions, it evolved to become what producer J. J. Abrams described as “a blood relative” of the 2008 film Cloverfield. The film is set to be released on March 11, 2016.
After a car accident, a young woman wakes up in an underground cellar, where most of the action takes place. She fears she has been abducted by a survivalist, who tells her he saved her life and that a chemical attack has left the outside world uninhabitable. Uncertain what to believe, she decides she must escape, whatever dangers she may face outside.
