It goes to the heart of the matter. Return to Silent Hill, the cinematic adaptation of Silent Hill 2, is finally here. Filming is slated to begin next month.
Something is happening at Return To Silent Hill, because as Deadline reports, shooting for the new Silent Hill movie is scheduled to start in April. The film will apparently be shot in Germany and Eastern Europe under the direction of Christophe Gans, who was at the helm of the original Silent Hill film. The screenplay is also by Gans, in collaboration with Sandra Vo-Anh and William Josef Schneider.
Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) and Hannah Emily Anderson (Jigsaw) are slated to star. The film revolves around James (Irvine), a man broken by the separation from his one true love (Anderson). When a mysterious letter calls him back to Silent Hill in search of her, he finds a town transformed by an unknown evil. As James descends deeper and deeper into the darkness, he encounters terrifying figures both familiar and new to him, and he begins to question his own sanity as he struggles to make sense of reality and endure long enough to save his lost love.
“Christophe and I have worked closely with our partners at Konami to update the video game to also create a version of Silent Hill for today’s cinema audiences,” explains producer Hadida. “You’ll still find the iconic monsters – but there will also be new designs. We’re confident that this new film and updated Konami game together will propel the franchise forward for years to come.”
It only remains to be seen whether the new film will appear first or the remake of Silent Hill 2 by Bloober Team.
