Return to Silent Hill officially announced by Konami


It was a remarkable day for the Silent Hill franchise. During today silent Hill Livestream transmission, Konami has announced that a new Silent Hill movie is officially in development and will relaunch the franchise. Title Back to Silent Hillthe film will bring back director Christophe Gans, who directed the first film in 2006 silent Hill series.

Back to Silent Hill will be based on the plot of the video game, Silent Hill 2. In the game, a man returns to Silent Hill after receiving a mysterious letter from his deceased wife that she is waiting for him there. Gans and producer Victor Hadida discussed story development and shared artwork from Back to Silent Hill in a new trailer.

“This one is now so many years old from the first one that there’s a clear idea from Christophe to make it modern, but also very true to the video game,” Hadida said. “And it is also what it is. We also respect the wishes of the author, producers and Konami in this adaptation. Christophe is really someone who respects the work that has been done, but who also has his own vision. It feeds the creative vision of the authors of the game, but with a different vision of a filmmaker. And the two created, I believe, something that struck the minds of the fans.

Based on the video game of the same name, silent Hill stars Radha Mitchell as Rose, a mother worried about the well-being of her adopted daughter Sharon (Jodelle Ferland), who has nightmares about the town of Silent Hill. Desperate to find answers, Rose drives to Silent Hill with Sharon but crashes her car in the way. Upon awakening from the accident, Sharon is missing, so Rose heads to Silent Hill in search of her daughter. Rose soon learns the town is full of monsters and demons as she uncovers Sharon’s dark past. Directed by Gans, the film grossed over $100 million worldwide and spawned the 2012 sequel Silent Hill: Revelation.

Back to Silent Hill is in the early stages of development.
