Cloverfield sequel already in the works?

It's an inevitability in Hollywood that whenever an original movie scores big at the box office, talk of a sequel soon follows. In the case of Cloverfield, the heavily-hyped monster movie that scorched the Cineplex to the tune of $41 million over the weekend, director Matt Reeves prepared for this contigency. In a recent interview with comingsoon.net, Reeves revealed the scene in which he planted the seeds of a potential Cloverfield sequel (Note: Spoilers Ahead!!!):
"Did you see the thing in the last shot? In the final shot there's a little something, and I don't wanna say what it is. The final shot before the titles. The stuff at Coney Island, there's a little something there and I don't want to give it away 'cause the fun is sort of to find it, but I will say this: there's a funny thing, you look at the shot and until you see it you don't see it and you really don't see it and obviously you don't 'cause none of you have seen it, but once you see it you'll never stop seeing it."
Which raises an interesting question: Is a sequel that covers the same events -- albeit from a different perspective -- really a sequel? Discuss.
