Roger Avary to Direct Silent Hill 2?

Roger Avary to Direct Silent Hill 2?We’ve all been waiting what seems like forever for some news, hell, any news, to break about a sequel to the big screen adaptation of the Konami video game, Silent Hill. Finally a little bit of news has seeped out.

The unexpected news came during an interview with Brett Easton Ellis on ChuckPalahniuk.net about his latest film The Informers.

The interviewer, known only as Dennis, asked Ellis if Roger Avary is still attached to direct Glamorama. His reply was enlightening to say the least. “He’s going to be shooting Silent Hill 2. As far as Glamorama, it’s just very hard to get the money to make it.

Yes, it’s not much but at least it’s something! How much does Ellis really know? Will Avary break his silence? Will Radha come back as a monster? We’ll let you know as soon as we hear.

    What’s up with Avery and the LAW?

    I agree with mdamien13. That script sucked. Why did they feel the need to fill Silent Hill with people and those gas masked dudes. The art direction and creature makeup effects were awesome along with the posters and choreography but the story was weak. And there was no need to explain everything. They only got it half right imo.

    I liked it too. It’s the best movie adapted from a video game. That’s not really saying much but I did enjoy it. It’s got a really cool look to it.

    I don’t know, I kinda liked it. It’s definitely not great, but the pros outweigh the cons. I’d see a sequel.

    I think the best part of the first Silent Hill movie was Christophe Gans’ direction (and the movie’s art department). Roger Avary’s script was atrocious – if he’s in charge of this one I’ll abandon all hope for it to be any good.

      Fair enough, and I don’t completely disagree, but one should remember that, whatever the quality of the script, it’s the one that Gans signed off on, so he’s not without blame.
