In an update regarding Cloverfield, a film that jumped onto our radar here, AICN's Moriarity clarifies J.J. Abrams is not directing the supposed monster film and Drew Goddard ("Lost," "Alias") is writing the script.

The people at the party go to the roof top just in time to catch lower Manhatten erupt into a ball of fire! They make their way to the street to witness the head of the statue of liberty fly down the street, end clip with screaming!
No word yet on who is directing.
