A New Silent Hill Movie Has Been Announced

A New Silent Hill Movie Has Been Announced

The cult classic could be back in cinemas soon

A new Silent Hill movie has been announced.

It's been almost 15 years since the classic video game was adapted into a horror movie. And despite 2012's Silent Hill: Revelation - which we could have done without - fans have been waiting patiently for its return.

But according to the director of the first film, Christophe Gans, a new movie is in the works.

Speaking to French site Allocine, the 59-year-old revealed that it was one of two projects he is working on.

He said: "I have two horror film projects with Victor Hadida. I am working on the adaptation of the video game Project Zero (Fatal Frame.) The film will take place in Japan. I especially don't want to uproot the game from its Japanese haunted house setting.

"And we're also working on a new Silent Hill. The project will always be anchored in this atmosphere of a small American town, ravaged by Puritanism. I think it's time to make a new one."

With this being the first mention of a new Silent Hill movie, not much is known in terms if a plot.

Away from the film, however, Konami has confirmed that it's currently looking into the best way of delivering a new chapter in the video game franchise.

This comes after reports that TWO new Silent Hill games were in the works.

Speaking to PCGamesN, a spokesperson for Konami said: "We cannot share anything at this point, but we are listening to customer feedback and considering ways to provide the next title."

Now, while that doesn't actually give much away, the gaming giant is clearly not poo-pooing the idea, either, which is definitely a positive sign for fans of the saga.

It is also the first time that Konami has really acknowledged the future of the survival horror franchise since plans for Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro's reboot, P.T./Silent Hills, were scuppered back in 2014.

Rumours if the game's return first started doing the rounds earlier this month.

And according to AestheticGamer, who has leaked information about Resident Evil info in the past, Konami is also planning to reboot the cult franchise, along with a Telltale/Until Dawn-style spinoff.

AestheticGamer also suggested that there's 'high chance' that one or both of these titles might be revealed this year, but for now we'll just have to wait and see.
