Michael J. Bassett to Write & Direct 'Silent Hill: Revelation 3D'
Almost a year ago we got word from producer Don Carmody that a sequel to the horror video game adaptation Silent Hill wasn't happening immediately. At the time, the imprisonment of writer Roger Avary was slowing down development, but it sounds like the project might now be on track. Bloody Disgusting has some news from the American Film Market that writer/director Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) will both write and direct the Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, which will be shot natively in 3D. It's not clear if Avary's idea or script he was once working on is being used as a foundation, but below you'll find details on the story for the horror sequel.
This time our story takes cues from the Silent Hill 3 game and will follow Heather Mason, along with her father, who have been on the run from the dangerous forces that she doesn't full understand, Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by horrific 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. Surely fans of both the game and film adaptation will be excited to hear some progress in development, but for now it's not clear how soon this one might get off the ground. Excited?
