Above is the first image of Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins : Wolverine and, should it actually shoot, Mad Max: Fury Road) in the sequel to Silent Hill. What sequel to Silent Hill, you ask? As was announced late last year, this one is called Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, and it begins shooting today in Toronto. Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane) is directing; more info after the break.
Here’s the press release, which confirms the plot synopsis we ran last year, and announces that Kit Harington stars in the film alongside Adelaide Clemens. The story seems to be based more or less on the video game Silent Hill 3, but because the first Silent Hill film generally omitted some of the characters from the first game that would directly link to this movie, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D seems like a standalone story set in the odd, haunted town of Silent Hill, rather than a direct sequel.
Here’s the press release:
Los Angeles, California – March 7, 2011: Davis Films producer Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody announced that rising star Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins : Wolverine, Vampire, Camilla Dickinson, Wasted on the Young, next starring in Mad Max: Fury Road) and Kit Harington (HBO’s upcoming series Game of Thrones) will top-line Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. The film begins lensing in Toronto today and is directed by Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch). International sales are being handled by Lionsgate.
Hadida and Carmody most recently produced Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D starring Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, and Wentworth Miller. Past collaborations include Resident Evil: Apocalypse and the earlier Silent Hill.
Hadida said: “We are all excited to have the Silent Hill team reunited in Toronto. With Michael at the helm, we will be building on the first film and taking Silent Hill into new territory with an exciting storyline and visuals that should grab both new audiences and fans of the Silent Hill franchise.”
Carmody added: “Adelaide is breaking out of the indie world with commercial features such as X-Men and the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road. She and Kit are emerging young talent and their chemistry and dynamics make them a brilliant addition to the Silent Hill team.”
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is based on the acclaimed survival horror videogame franchise by KONAMI and is the sequel to Hadida and Carmody’s earlier Silent Hill directed by Christophe Gans. For years, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying 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.
