Silent Hill 2 to Start Production in 2010?
Posted 11.13.09 by Ryan
ShockTillYouDrop stopped by the set of Resident Evil: Afterlife where Silent Hill's special makeup effects designer Paul Jones gave an update for the upcoming sequel, saying production could begin as early as next year.
I was working on storyboards for that around the same time last year. It's going to be pretty crazy. There's a lot of cool stuff in there. Roger [Avary] has some awesome ideas and hopefully we're going to bring that to fruition sometime next year.
Avary wrote the original Silent Hill and was hired to write the sequel right before he was sentenced to prison for gross vehicular manslaughter. A judge allowed Avary to enter a furlough program that allowed him to continue to write the script for Silent Hill 2. Jones would not comment on whether the script was complete.
A 2010 start date may be a little generous considering Silent Hill 2 currently has no director or cast attached. The original Silent Hill, based on a video game series of the same name, opened in 2006, raking in $97 million in worldwide box office.
