Return to Silent Hill will be an adaptation of Konami’s Silent Hill 2 video game from 2001. The game follows James Sunderland as he fights his way through the hellish town, looking for his deceased wife. We don’t know how closely production will follow the source material narrative.

All Gans has said about the plot is:

“The film tells the story of a young guy coming back to Silent Hill, where he has known a great love, and what he’s going to find is a pure nightmare.”

Producer Victor Hadida has stated that Gans’ idea is to “make it modern, but also very true to the video game.”

In the teaser trailer, Gans and Hadida talked about using new technologies and how everything has changed over the last fifteen years. However, they still want to respect the authors, producers, Konami, and the Silent Hill fan base. A fan base that Gans is a member of.
