Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is now filming in Toronto. That’s right, 3D. Oh joy…
Davis Films is bringing the long running Konami franchise to the big screen for the second time. The first, directed by Christophe Gans, was a pretty alright but annoying because they cut out Harry movie adaptation of the first game. Pretty much. And it was alright. So now we’re going to get an adaptation of Silent Hill 3 which will probably be…alright.
“For over a decade, the Silent Hill franchise has been scaring players through psychological horror and the fear of the unknown,” said Shinji Hirano, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “It’s that proven blueprint for terror we know Samuel Hadida is capable of re-creating for the big screen. With him at the helm, we’re confident Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, will bring a new dimension of fear for fans both old and new.”
“We are all excited to have the Silent Hill team reunited in Toronto for the sequel to one of the best horror franchises of all time,” said Producer Samuel Hadida of Davis Films. “With Michael at the directing helm, we will be building on the first film and taking the Silent Hill story into new territories with exciting storylines and visuals that will grab both new audiences, and those familiar with theSilent Hill franchise.”
The new movie is being made by much of the same talent behind the first movie (good or bad depending on your point of view), will be directed by Michael J. Bassett and will star Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington. I’m assuming Pyramid Head couldn’t be reached for comment.
