2006 saw the release of SILENT HILL and despite the low box office sales it was a movie I really enjoyed and will admit I have it on DVD. Like its slightly bigger rival Resident Evil the Silent Hill game is so big its been a surprise there hasnt been more movies churned out for the franchise. Now we know there is a sequel been made as well been currently filming in Toronto Canada SILENT HILL REVELATIONS 3D with Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington already confirmed and now today it was confirmed that 3 of the original cast are to return:SEAN BEAN, RADHA MITCHELL AND DEBORAH KARA UNGER.
For a movie that didnt meet expectations at the box office its quite unusal for cast from the original film to make appearance in a follow up but at this stage we dont know if they will only be in the movie briefly for flashbacks possibly guides to Clemens and Harrington or even playing a massive part in the overall movie. I’m not surpised this movie is been made for 3d and out of this franchise to resident evil Silent Hill is a little more amotspheric which could help the movie. When the time comes for the trailers to appear lets hope they dont over do it if the equipment used is borrowed from James Cameron like Resident Evil 4.

AND DEBORAH KARA UNGER REUNITE FOR
MICHAEL J. BASSETT’S
SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D
STARS FROM THE ORIGINAL SILENT HILL REPRISE THEIR ROLES IN TORONTO
Toronto, Canada – March 15, 2011: Davis Films producer Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody announced today 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, 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, Vampire, Camilla Dickinson, Wasted on the Young, 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).
International sales are being handled by Lionsgate.
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 3D starring Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, and Wentworth Miller. Past collaborations include Resident Evil: Apocalypse and the earlier 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.
