Five years ago, the original adaptation of the atmospheric, survival-horror videogame Silent Hill hit theaters with less than blockbusting results. However, since people tend to love multiple sequels to these games-turned-movies (see the Resident Evil series), it’s no surprise that Silent Hill: Revelation 3D has already started filming. Alongside up-and-comers Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington, the sequel will see the return of Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean and Deborah Kara Unger, all of whom played characters who managed to survive to the end of Silent Hill. 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 and a new image from the upcoming film.

While it’s not all that surprising that a sequel is being churned out of the Silent Hill franchise (or for that matter, the fact that the production team behind Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D will also be behind Silent Hill: Revelation 3D), I’m honestly surprised that the surviving characters of the original film will be making an appearance. Maybe they will be guides for a new crop of survivors who stumble into Silent Hill’s hellish dimension? It will be interesting to see where the sequel picks up and we’ll keep you updated as we find out more along the way.

And normally I’m not a fan of the whole 3D shtick, but with the Red Epic cameras and the incredible atmosphere the videogames were revered for, the visuals could be even more engaging than the original. Besides, I’m always up for some more flesh-rending courtesy of Pyramid Head.

Here’s the press release announcing that Mitchell, Bean, and Unger have joined the cast:

SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D

STARS FROM THE ORIGINAL SILENT HILL REPRISE THEIR ROLES IN TORONTO

Toronto, Canada – March 15, 2011: Davis Films producer 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.

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 edited by Michele Conroy (Vincenzo Natali’s Splice).

International sales are being handled by Lionsgate.

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 along side of 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.

    Very awesome! Silent Hill still remains my favorite video game adaption (even though Collider seems intent on hammering in what a disappointment it was), so i’m excited with this film moving forward. And now very happy to know this won’t be an entire reboot. Anyone who has played and loved the games knows that there have always been multiple protagonists that ultimately have crossed paths, both in obvious and subtle ways.

      I actually really enjoyed Silent Hill and I’m looking forward to the sequel! While the beginning of the original had me a little worried, the movie gradually got better and better. By the end I was completely into the whole thing. I just hope it doesn’t go the route of Resident Evil.

        The thing that’s hated about the Silent Hill movie is that’s is entirely a Frankenstein monster of different things between the games, which they don’t really cross given the symbolism of each environment and creature design for each protagonists. The Blind Nurses are the best examples of this, where with Silent Hill 2 they were their because James Sunderland was looking for his lost wife and represented his frustrated libido not to mention the deal with Pyramid head. So when they were stitched awkwardly into the movie just screams lazy manipulative writing, no one cared why there would be these aspects from the games so much as fans will recognize them so let’s crowbar this shit in.

        Furthermore the movie took off from the absolutely worst aspect of the games and that’s the evil cult aspects. I don’t think there’s much argument to be had that the only strong sense of villainy from these games was the town of Silent Hill itself and even then it’s not so much a demonic force of oppression as it is a more subtle passive aggressive despairing hate then the kind of scum and human villainy the cult aspects offered.

        Also there’s a third more primal reason and that’s simply Silent Hill as a narrative doesn’t work well as a movie. Case in point it’s strength is atmosphere and pacing, and a movie just doesn’t offer the basic level of entertainment that a game can to let that slow pacing properly sink into place.

        Aromcath: The creative team of the Silent Hill games, including the director of Silent Hill 2, have said that Pyramid Head is NOT exclusive to James and can pop up anytime, albeit with different motivations.

        The same logic COULD be applied to the faceless nurses.

        And personally, I love the evil cult part of SH.

    I can NOT figure out what/who Heather will be since there was no reincarnation of Alessa’s good self at the end of the first movie, which is clearly connected to this one.

    Silent Hill 3 is my favorite in the series so I’m curious what this will turn out to be. Short of the story, the first SH movie was fantastic.

    I bought this movie on DVD and never watched it, ended up selling the dvd 2 years later still in the wrapping lol.

    The mere fact that this thing is going to be in 3D tells me it will suck. The last Resident Evil movie was the only truly bad one that has been released, they totally destroyed everything RE had going for it in the first 3 installments.
