Davis Films producer Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody have announced that the stars of Silent Hill---Radha Mitchell (The Crazies, Surrogates), Sean Bean (HBO's upcoming series "Game of Thrones," Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, "The Lord of the Rings"), and Deborah Kara Unger (Shake Hands with the Devil, 88 Minutes)---will return to join Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Mad Max: Fury Road) and Kit Harington ("Game of Thrones") on Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.

Filming in Toronto, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is based on a screenplay by director Michael Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch), who is joined by cinematographer Maxime Alexandre (The Crazies, Mirrors, The Hills Have Eyes), production designer Alicia Keywan (The Haunting in Connecticut, Messengers), costume designer Wendy Partridge (Silent Hill, Hellboy, Underworld) and edited by Michele Conroy (Vincenzo Natali's Splice).

Bassett said: "It wouldn't be the same without some of the original 'Silent Hill' cast. Sean, Radha and Deborah's return will certainly thrill fans of the franchise and compliment Revelations stars Adelaide and Kit."

Alexandre added: "With the most advanced technology available, in particular the lighter, smaller and more flexible 3D Red Epic, we are able to take audiences deeper in the world of 'Silent Hill' than they ever dreamed possible. Devotees will finally be able to enter this realm along side of Heather, Vincent, Harry and Rose and experience the psychological horror and the fear of the unknown with them."

Hadida and Carmody most recently produced Resident Evil: Afterlife starring Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, and Wentworth Miller. Past collaborations include Resident Evil: Apocalypse and the previous Silent Hill.

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.

I've never played the video game so maybe that's why I didn't understand the first movie.  The visuals were effective and creepy but it just confused the hell out of me.  Maybe I should go back and re-watch.

I actually enjoyed this film, again not a gamer so don't know how true the film was to the game nor care really. I'm game, especially if we get some more skin peeling scenes

This is one of the many reasons video game movies upset me. The only good thing about the first movie was the production design; what a surprise, since it was done by Cronenberg veteran Carol Spier. Bad dialogue, bad acting, bad plotting, bad execution; when your film needs a ten minute flashback with a voiceover in the third act and it STILL doesn't explain a damn thing that happens in the movie, you're in serious trouble.

In my opinion, movies based on 90's and 00's video games won't get good until the people who grew up on them have a chance to adapt them. I just don't understand the assumption that fans want to see something 'different' when a game is turned into a movie. Imagine the mess that would result from adapting classic novels that way.
