Now this is the kind of news we love to report. Three of the stars of the original Silent Hill are returning to the franchise, and we even have a picture of one of them in action!
From the Press Release:
Davis Films producers Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody announced today that the stars of Silent Hill — Radha Mitchell (The Crazies, Surrogates), Sean Bean (HBO’s upcoming series “Game of Thrones”, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Lord of the Rings), and Deborah Kara Unger (Shake Hands with the Devil, 88 Minutes) — will return to join Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Vampire, Camilla Dickinson, Wasted on the Young, Mad Max: Fury Road) and Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) on Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. [Looks like Bloody Disgusting was correct in their earlier prediction that Bean would be returning.]
Filming in Toronto, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is based on a screenplay by director Michael Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch), who is joined by cinematographer Maxime Alexandre (The Crazies, Mirrors, The Hills Have Eyes), production designer Alicia Keywan (The Haunting in Connecticut, Messengers), costume designer Wendy Partridge (Silent Hill, Hellboy, Underworld), and editor Michele Conroy (Vincenzo Natali’s Splice).
International sales are being handled by Lionsgate.
Bassett said: “It wouldn’t be the same without some of the original Silent Hill cast. Sean, Radha, and Deborah’s return will certainly thrill fans of the franchise and complement Revelations stars Adelaide and Kit.”
Alexandre added: “With the most advanced technology available, in particular the lighter, smaller, and more flexible 3D Red Epic, we are able to take audiences deeper in the world of Silent Hill than they ever dreamed possible. Devotees will finally be able to enter this realm alongside Heather, Vincent, Harry, and Rose and experience the psychological horror and the fear of the unknown with them.”
Hadida and Carmody most recently produced Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D starring Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, and Wentworth Miller. Past collaborations include Resident Evil: Apocalypse and the earlier Silent Hill.
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is based on the acclaimed survival horror videogame franchise by KONAMI and is the sequel to Hadida and Carmody’s earlier Silent Hill directed by Christophe Gans. For years, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now, on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hill forever.
