Carrie-Anne Moss and Malcolm McDowell Join Silent Hill: Revelation 3D; Plus Another New Photo
Posted 04.07.11 by Ryan
As has become standard, more cast has been announced while another new photo has been released for writer/director Michael J. Bassett's horror sequel, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.
With the lead actors Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and British actor Kit Harington (HBO's Game of Thrones) already set, Revelation announced that Silent Hill actors Radha Mitchell and Deborah Kara Unger had joined the cast last month. Fellow Silent Hill actor Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring) had already been cast. The photo revealed at that time was of Mitchell inside an elevator with Clemens approaching, while the most recent photo depicts Clemens and Harington in the streets of Silent Hill.
The latest casting announcement has revealed the additions of Carrie-Anne Moss and Malcolm McDowell as antagonists Claudia and Leonard Wolf. In the Konami video game Silent Hill 3, Claudia Wolf is a priestess of a cult that plans to use Heather Mason (played by Clemens in the movie) to birth their god, and Leonard Wolf is Claudia's abusive father.
Said producer Samuel Hadida of Moss' casting:
Carrie has displayed her enormous talent across all genres — from The Matrix trilogy to Memento — and we are delighted for her to join the world of Silent Hill. She will certainly bring a new level of excitement to fans of the videogame franchise.
Basset has previously revealed that Revelation will "remain true to the plot of game 3," which is becoming further realized by the addition of Moss and McDowell. Bassett praised the addition of McDowell, who is well-known to genre fans for a variety of movies, the most recent being the two Halloween remakes.
Malcolm is quite simply an icon of modern cinema and I've been a fan since I was a teenager when I managed to see A Clockwork Orange. He has an amazing ability to bring new and unexpected dimensions to his characters and I know he will bring something unique and disturbing to Silent Hill.
Revelation is still without a release date, but is currently shooting in Toronto.
