A new Silent Hill movie is in the works

It’s been a Hell of a long time since we visited the misty, eerie town of Silent Hill

To think that the Silent Hill movie was released 15-years ago is a frightening thought. Where the fuck did the time go?. Yes, I know we also had a sequel, Silent Hill: Revelations but that slipped under the radar for a lot of people and did even worse at the box office than the 1st instalment – which didn’t do too well itself making just 100 million bucks from a budget of 50 million.

Now, all these years later, director/writer Christophe Gans is back and has just confirmed that he has just completed a brand new script. It looks like Netflix will be the new home of Silent Hill but has yet to be confirmed. The important thing is that we have a brand new script…from the original director.

Christophe Gans had this to say in a recent interview with Jeux Video (translation by ComicBook.com)

The script for a new Silent Hill movie that is totally independent from the two previous movies made and respects the way Silent Hill has evolved. Silent Hill is a bit like Twilight Zone, the Fourth Dimension, a place where anything and everything can happen,”. I worked on a new Silent Hill which is a Silent Hill of the year 2023 since the film would be released next year… in 2023… and not a Silent Hill as I imagined it in 2006.”

“It is a Silent Hill for today’s audiences while being ultra-respectful of the saga,” Gans said. “I am aware that Silent Hill is a very great video game franchise and a work of art in the noble sense of the term. The people who thought up Silent Hill put a lot of their guts into it.”

I am so looking forward to a brand new entry into the franchise. I don’t care if it’s a remake, reboot, sequel or prequel. We have seen countless Resident Evil I think it is time for us to take a trip to the foggy, dodgy town of Silent Hill. I can not wait.
