Silent Hill 2 movie confirmed

Cristophe Gans has told French Magazine DVDrama that work on a second Silent Hill film is well under way, and he promises that it will remedy all of the problems of the first picture.

That said, while he's keen to revisit his role as director of the film, alongside writer Roger Avary, he can't make any promises due to his current involvement in another big-screen videogame adaptation - Onimusha.

"There will indeed be a Silent Hill 2 and it is officially ordered and is already well under way. Once he has finished his adaptation of Driver, Roger Avary will be [working on the script], helped by his friend Neil Gaiman."

British author Gaiman's actual contribution to the project is still rather doubtful, stating on his blog that fans' emails asking about his involvement were the first he'd heard of it.

You people need to stop complaining on how the movie wasnt like the game..WHO CARES its a movie and just because its not like the game doesnt make it bad..so get over yourself. and by the way Resident Evil was KickA$$

p.s. i played all the silent hill games and the first resident evil and theres nothing wrong with making a movie based on the story thats not exact....why would you want to watch a movie that you already knew the story to, LAME!

I'm very excited to hear that SH2 movie are under way. The first movie was alright, though, I think it would've been much better if the story plot were similar to the game. Resident Evil movie was pretty bad IMO, the characters and storyline was a total screwed up to the movie.

I haven't seen the first one yet, I've seen it on DVD but cause I was hearing bad things about it I was hesitant to buy it. I've got all the games and quite enjoyed them, does the movie stay faithful to them?

I can't really say how faithful as I haven't played Silent Hill in ages, but it's still a decent movie. If you're iffy, I suggest renting it (not sure why people buy movies anyhow, ya watch it once or twice, you've seen it all).

I've watched Kill Bill and House of Flying Daggers at least 4 times each. They are my favorite movies!

"...remedy all of the problems.."

sound a movie with a service pack. :P


Anyways, the ufo ending (of the game) was cool and wtf.

IMHO, the first movie is not bad. Yeah...a little alteration especially on the character department, but the ending is not confusing as some might claim. They're not using "UFO Ending" anyway :P (which in my opinion will make things more complicated). And I hope they still not using it on the second installment... :P

OW MY GOD REALLY PLEASED TO SEE THIS NEWS :P

I thought the first one was it no more but i really liked the music on the first one and everything else was nice but you guys think it sucks the ending was sad i loved it..

Gamespot had this up a few days ago....


OMG it must be old news then because I bet the production company knew about it even earlier than that! :P

I enjoyed the first, but like others said, it stayed true to the vagueness of the games just a tad too much.

Visually it was stunning, and if they could just make this sequel a pinch easier to follow, I'll be there opening night.

After watching other movies based off games, I wasn't looking forward to Silent Hill. Resident Evil blew so bad.. Anyway, Silent Hill I actually liked a lot. Very different, but very good. I'm hoping they don't jinx themselves with a sequel. I am looking very forward to it though as of now.

Oh God damn NO!!

The first uber sucked. Didn't follow the game story like they promised. Sequel will suck too. Just like every other computer game turned film.

FF7:AC is the only exception, because the actual same people made both the game and the movie. And in doing so, created the most magnificent story ever told across both games and movies.

The first movie followed the storyline just with different characters, you obviously haven't played Silent Hill 1 and 2 thoroughly enough, it was a combination of both. I'm looking forward to it.

I've never understood why people get so upset about sequels when they never liked the original.

You watched the first and hated it. Great. Now you know what to expect, so you don't have to waste your money this time around. There's no impact on you.

Unless someone is going to force you to watch it...Is that what's going on here?

I'm hoping it's beeter than the first movie. God, did it suck. It was VERY hard to follow. I hope Uwe Boll doesn't direct.
