Silent Hill 2 film in development by Konami

2006 Silent Hill director Christophe Gans returns to direct a film based on the second installment in the classic horror video game series.

Return to Silent Hill, a horror film based on Konami’s classic survival/horror video game series, is in development. The news was revealed at the end of a live stream dedicated to announcing new titles in the franchise.

Christophe Gans, who directed 2006’s “Silent Hill,” based on the first game in the series, has been confirmed to direct the film. He appeared in a video message during the livestream to discuss the project. Additionally, Victor Hadida, who served as executive producer on the 2006 film, will return to produce Return. Gans confirmed that the film would adapt the second game in the franchise, which was announced as having an upcoming remake for the Playstation 5 in the same livestream.

“The film tells the story of a young man who returns to Silent Hill where he met a great love,” Gans said during the livestream. “And what he will find is an absolute nightmare.”

Created by video game director Keiichiro Toyama, the Silent Hill franchise focuses on the eponymous abandoned town covered in fog and infested with monsters. Each game follows a new protagonist as they stumble across Silent Hill and end up struggling to survive, often confronting their darkest traumas along the way.

Released for the Playstation 2 in 2001, Silent Hill 2 is widely regarded as the best game in the series and one of the best games of all time. It was a financial success, selling over a million copies in its first month. The game’s story revolves around James Sunderland, a young man who receives a letter from his late wife urging him to return to Silent Hill, where they once spent an idyllic vacation, and promising that she would be waiting for him there .

Goose’s original 2006 film starred Radha Mitchell as Rose, a mother searching for her missing daughter in Silent Hill. Other cast members included Sean Bean, Laurie Holden, Deborah Kara Unger, Kim Coates, Tanya Allen, Alice Krige and Jodelle Ferland. The film was a financial success at the time, grossing $100 million worldwide from a $50 million production budget. Reviews were generally negative at the time, although today the film has multiple defenders and was better received by fans of the games. A sequel to the film, Silent Hill: Revelation, which adapted the third game in the series, was released in 2012, with MJ Bassett replacing Gans as director. This film received similarly negative reviews and grossed $56 million worldwide.

In addition to Return to Silent Hill and the remake of Silent Hill 2, Konami announced several other projects in the video game franchise during the live stream, including the games Silent Hill Townfall and Silent Hill f. The three games will be the first entries in the franchise in over 10 years, following the release of the eighth game in the franchise, Silent Hill: Downpour, in 2012.
