What new and scarier ways can we taunt the Big Apple - and scare the bejesus out of Manhattanites? Paramount wants to know. They've given director Matt Reeves a green light for a sequel to Cloverfield, the little monster movie that scared up $46 million over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, setting a new box-office record. They'll also reward Reeves' appetite for destruction by letting him direct another movie he wrote, The Invisible Woman, a Hitchcockian thriller about a former beauty queen who turns to crime to protect her family (as former beauty queens are wont to do). - Mickey O'Connor
