Silent Hill: Revelations Director Talks About the Upcoming Sequel

It seems like the Silent Hill fan base is not to sure of what to make of the new news that there will be a sequel to the first live-action adaptation. Some seem horrified and others are optimistic that it will “be done right this time.” One thing is for certain, there is definitely a lot of weight riding on the shoulders of newly appointed director Michael J. Bassett. The director recently addressed the news of the film on his official blog, in the hopes to calm the fear of uneasy fans.

Finally, it’s been announced and I can say officially what I’ve been eager to share with you all for a little while now; I’ve written and am going to be directing the new Silent Hill movie.

I love the games and was a huge admirer of the first film. Especially how Christophe Gans and his team managed to capture the look and feel of the world. I say, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it,  so I’m bringing back as many of that core creative team as I can – but I’m probably going to bring just a little more darkness and fear into the mix as well.   I love the complex mythology and psychological twists that Konami created so will do my best honour that aspect too.

I’m determined to deliver a film that builds on the qualities of the first film and draws on the best aspects of the games whilst giving the audience more nuanced characters, a compelling story and introducing some terrifying new monsters (as well as bringing back a few favourites) and, most important of all… just scaring the shit out of everyone.
