Silent Hill : after a successful version in 2006, the 2012 version was a failure, what will happen to the third version?

 

The director returns Christophe Gans on stage, and he will direct a new movie “Silent Hill”. The filmmaker and Konami have given concrete information about the story that will be an adaptation of the second game in the franchise.

The film, Silent Hill (2006), directed by Christophe Gans, is an adaptation of the eponymous video game, a terrifying survivor horror released on Playstation in 1999. If the feature film has countless qualities, mainly visual (Gans did a good job of transcribing the game’s eerie atmosphere), this is less the case for Silent Hill: Revelation (2012), directed by M. J. Bassett. Since then, we hoped that one day Christophe Gans would come back to work on a new Silent Hill movie. And the good news finally arrived last June.

During the re-release in theaters of the Pact of the Wolves in 4K, the director confided to us that he was working on a new Silent Hill. Specifying that it was a new story with new characters, but still in the town of Silent Hill. His idea is to take up the anthological concept of the games. So, do not expect to see again the characters of Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean, or Jodelle Ferland, who carried the first film.

After a period of several months that have passed and the good news continues for this next Silent Hill. In the night of October 19 to 20, 2022, the video game publisher Konami made a series of announcements about the franchise. Notably, on the game side, a remake of Silent Hill 2 or an unpublished game titled Silent Hill f. But above all, the studio has directly mentioned the next movie which will be called Return to Silent Hill.

The genial director, Christophe Gans himself appears to recall the success of the first film before saying more about the story of the next one, which will be neither more nor less than an adaptation of the second game!

We are talking about Silent Hill 2. The movie tells the story of a young man who returns to Silent Hill, where he had a great love. And what he will discover there will be a pure nightmare.

The director goes on to mention how “the creators have completely changed the rules for this game”.

So we’re back in Silent Hill, in the same town, but we’re looking at this strange world from the point of view of the hero we’re playing. We realize that Mary has disappeared somewhere in this strange place.

In addition to Christophe Gans, the producer Victor Hadida (already behind the first film) also intervenes by evoking the myth of Orpheus as an inspiration, and “how far a man can go, in the depths of hell, to bring back to life the person he loves the most”.

All in all, this is a very good omen. Especially with the “100%” support of Konami and the will of Gans to modernize Silent Hill 2 while remaining very faithful. And this will be done through the creatures, including the announced return of Pyramid Head, accompanied by surprises…

The film, Return to Silent Hill, is on track but should not be released before 2023.
