The Cloverfield monster is... the monster from Lost?

We all know J.J. Abrams is the man behind the hit television show Lost (one of my favorite TV shows ever), and that he is also producing (and getting all the credit even though he isn't the director) Cloverfield, the unnamed monster movie that comes out on 1-18-08. Lost has a monster of its own, and we still have yet to truly see what its origin is or what its purpose is. But soon, we will...

The Cloverfield monster is the Lost monster:

1. In its early stages, Cloverfield was rumored to be a Lost movie.
2. J.J. Abrams is intimately involved with both projects
3. The only picture of the Cloverfield monster is the questionable outline of something in a fireball at the center of New York, though there is no clear shape. Lost's monster is a black, nebulous cloud.
4. How does the monster travel from the center of the city to the street where the party kids are so quickly? The Lost monster can move quickly.
5. Cloverfield has a small budget. The Lost monster already works on a TV budget, and can be created just by lighting plastic on fire.

Of course, I'm completely BS-ing this, but I haven't heard it brought up before, so why not? (other than that it would be a completely stupid idea)

Despite the fact that I've never seen Lost and I've only seen the cloverfield preview once... I think you're right.
