If you thought that Silent Hill tanking at the box office would be an impediment to a sequel, you would be exercising sound common sense, but you would also be wrong.  Shooting Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, began today in Toronto with Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) in the director’s chair.  Adelaide Clements and Kit Harrington will star in the sequel that’s based on the popular video game of the same name.  Here’s the synopsis:

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.

Hit the jump for the full press release as well as the first image from the film.  Presumably, Silent Hill: Revelations will be released in theatres, although I think it would be cool to start seeing direct-to-3D-Blu-ray releases.

RISING STARS ADELAIDE CLEMENS & KIT HARINGTON TO TOPLINE SAMUEL HADIDA & DON CARMODY’S SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D

FILM BASED ON THE BEST SELLING KONAMI VIDEOGAME FRANCHISE TO BEGIN LENSING TODAY IN TORONTO

Los Angeles, California – March 7, 2011: Davis Films producer Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody announced that rising star Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins : Wolverine, Vampire, Camilla Dickinson, Wasted on the Young, next starring in Mad Max: Fury Road) and Kit Harington (HBO’s upcoming series Game of Thrones) will top-line Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.  The film begins lensing in Toronto today and is directed by Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch). International sales are being handled by Lionsgate.

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.

Hadida said: “We are all excited to have the Silent Hill team reunited in Toronto.  With Michael at the helm, we will be building on the first film and taking Silent Hill into new territory with an exciting storyline and visuals that should grab both new audiences and fans of the Silent Hill franchise.”

Carmody added: “Adelaide is breaking out of the indie world with commercial features such as X-Men and the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road.  She and Kit are emerging young talent and their chemistry and dynamics make them a brilliant addition to the Silent Hill team.”

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.

  • SilentHILL!!!YESSS!!!

    This is amazing news! I dont care if it tanked at the box office, this was WITHOUT QUESTION, the best adapted video game movie ever made. It had the exact feel of the series! I am SUPER! MEGA! PUMPED! Anyone else with me on this one?

    • Poe

      Agreed!

    The third game was great, one of the best from PS2 era.

    But it doesn’t really make sense without playing SH1, despite having a strong lead character.

    Hope they don’t screw this one up since I thought the first SH movie was rather “good”, by videogame adaption standards.

    Now I know why they haven’t tried to adapt SH2, it would require actual talent to pull it off since it’s a game that already beats 99,8% of all Hollywood horror/suspense films.

    I didnt know that almost 100 million worldwide (not even counting DVD sales, etc.) for an “R” rated video game movie with a 50 million dollar budget is “tanking”. Keeping in mind that the first “Silent Hill” movie is generally regarded as one of the better game-to-film adaptations, i think its pretty easy to see why Silent Hill 2 is coming to fruition…

    I could totally see this as providing a deflated, climactic experience, similar to the half-blood prince reveal in the film treatment for Harry Potter. Without proper background info, a big reveal (like Heather being the daughter of J. Mason from SH1) just doesn’t resonate as deep as it should. Without a proper treatment of SH1, it won’t be the same.

    Also, SH2 would be awesome, if the spirit of the game is captured just right.
