Michael J. Bassett Talks About Returning to Silent Hill (Sort Of)
For the most part, I really dig Silent Hill. Kind of goes without saying that it's the best video game adaptation out there, but it's also a pretty good movie. The further we got away from it, it seemed less likely that we would ever see a sequel so I'm pretty happy to report on every piece of Silent Hill 2 news out there. I'm just glad to know it's on the way.
There isn't much to say today, but director Michael J. Bassett did update his blog yesterday, offering some little tidbits about this awaited sequel.
Anyway, just a very quick post to say it’s all going pretty well. It continues to be a struggle to physically make the movie but the team is holding strong and I think you’re going to really dig some of the images we’re getting. Adelaide continues to impress as Heather. She’s so focussed on character and performance, it really brings greater depth to the whole show.
Last week we had Malcolm McDowell in for a little while to play Leonard Wolf. Clearly when we meet him he’s not in his monstrous form but your going to get a kick out of why he’s there and what he does. It was a huge thrill getting Malcolm on the show. He regaled us with fabulous stories and was a treat to work with. Days like those, no matter how long and intense, are always memorable.
Sean Bean is back for the rest of his work. Having a good time working with him. He’s a typically down to earth and wryly humourous northerner. A straight talker and great technical film actor too. I really enjoyed the first episode of ‘Game of Thrones’ and it’s fab to see Kit Harington and Sean on screen together in that. Also pleased it’s got picked up for a second season – I’d love to direct an episode.
On another note, I see that there are various photos leaked from the production over the internet. That’s the problem with location shooting – there’s just no way of keeping things secret. I’m not going to confirm or deny anything that you may have surmised from what you think they reveal but I think they mostly made the production look quite good.
