With Silent Hill 2 starting producition in 2010, more details about the sequel are emerging. ShockTillYouDrop spoke to Silent Hill producer Don Carmody about what is lined up for the sequel, which Carmody says will be different from its predecessor.
I think we need to make it a little more accessible to the movie-going public. Silent Hill is not a blockbuster game like Resident Evil or the other games out there. It's a connoisseurs' game. It has its own, rabid fan base. They're not cheap, these things. You have to appeal not only to the gamers, you have to appeal to a wider audience. So we have to get some story in there that helps explain a bit more. I think that's all happening. Of course, [the story] is going to happen years later and the main character — without giving too much away — is much older and representative to the movie-going public which is in that age group.
While Silent Hill actress Radha Mitchell's return is uncertain, Carmody says that director Christophe Gans likely won't be back.
I don't think he wants to come back. He'll have some input for
sure. In his mind, I think he wanted to do the first one and for this he's very happy to consult, but I think he wants to direct something
The only problem that remains is getting the script from screenwriter Roger Avary, who was recently sentenced to a year in prison.
Well, we have had a bit of a hiccup with Roger. We're just debating whether we can wait for him. He's writing the script for sure.
