Screenwriter Roger Avary and producer Samuel Hadida of Davis Films are revisiting the dark and twisted roads of "Silent Hill." Both have signed on for a sequel to their 2006 video game adaptation!
I love the games, they scared the bejeesus out of me, and I'm proud to say I finished them all, BUT the original film starring Sean Bean and Radha Mitchell was just so-so.
The 2006 film centers on Rose Da Silva played by Mitchell. She travels to a haunted town to seek help for her sick daughter only to be engulfed by the supernatural occurrences happening inside the desolate village.
The second videogame of the franchise, "Silent Hill 2" has a new character named James Sunderland. He enters the town after receiving a letter from his dead wife Mary saying she is waiting for him in their "special place" in Silent Hill.
There's no word yet if Avary is going to based the sequel on the second game.
Davis Films is planning to shoot the movie next year after "Resident Evil 4" (I know right? Another "Resident Evil" movie? By the way, they're prepping the fourth film right now).
The original "Silent Hill" was released by Tristar Pictures but there's still no confirmed involvement from the studio.
Avary, famous for his "Pulp Fiction" script, is also working on another videogame adaptation -- "Return to Castle Wolfenstein."
