Truth be told, "Silent Hill" was the only videogame franchise that I played from start to finish. So to my discontent, I was letdown by the first "Silent Hill" movie released in 2006 by director Christoph Gans.
Now, "Silent Hill" gets a 3D sequel with help from the "Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D" team. According to the Hollywood Reporter, French producer Samuel Hadida has joined forces with Don Carmody. They recently gave us "Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D."
Michael J. Bassett, the guy who gave us "Deathwatch" and the "Solomon Kane" movies, is set to write and direct the sequel to be called "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D." Lionsgate is set to distribute.
Hadida revealed to THR that, "We have high expectations for this continuation of the franchise with our reunited Silent Hill production team...Michael was our natural choice to write and direct. He understands the genre, is passionate about the Silent Hill franchise, and will bring his considerable action picture skills to a fresh and thrilling insight of the Silent Hill 3D world."
Roger Avary ("Pulp Fiction") wrote the first draft of the sequel centered on Heather Mason, a character from the third video game in the series. This one will be set 17 years after the first film, and will be in 3D of course!
Konami, the gaming company who gave us the "Silent Hill" videogame series, is on board. "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" is set to shoot in Toronto this year.
