Fans of the 2006 film, Silent Hill, can rejoice – the sequel, titled Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, is headed to screens via Open Road Films opening wide on October 26, 2012.
Silent Hill was based on the survival horror video game consisting of eight installments published by Konami. The film starred Sean Bean and Deborah Unger and was a modest hit grossing just over $90 million worldwide on a budget of only $50 million.
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D will be directed by Michael J. Basset (the underappreciated Solomon Kane) and Bean, Unger and Radha Mitchell have all returned for the second installment and will be joined by Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) and Malcolm McDowell (just about any horror movie looking for a creepy old guy).
Revelation 3D has the following synopsis detailed on imdb.com “Heather Mason 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 horrific 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 forever.”
Producer Samuel Hadida commented, ““The film is a thrill ride that improves on the original in many ways. We take all audiences, new and old, deep into the world of psychological horror that is Silent Hill, and advance thestory for those familiar with the franchise. We are thrilled to have Tom and his terrific team at Open Road presenting our film to U.S. audiences.”
Silent Hill: Revelations 3D will face box office competition from Paranormal Activity 4 and Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, all due out around Halloween this year.
