New Silent Hill Movie Announced

Mediocre video game-based film Silent Hill is getting the sequel treatment. Columbia Pictures has officially announced it is going to begin production on Silent Hill II: The Legend of Curly's Gold after the completion of Sony Screen Gems' Resident Evil: Afterlife.

Returning for part two are screenwriter Roger Avary and producer Samuel Hadida. There is no word yet on whether director Christoph Gans or any original cast members ( Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean, Laurie Holden, Alige Krige and Jodelle Ferland) will be back for round two.

I liked the first Silent Hill movie. It was an effective horror flick, and I never actually expected it to rise the heights of terror of the best of the video games. Even though I am a huge fan of the game series, the movie didn't feel like an insult to the games, but another piece of the mythology.  I feel like giving the sequel to another director would totally work. After all, the "star" of a Silent Hill movie is bound to be the creepy settings: You could tell a million tales of terror in the dark town of Silent Hill. 

What do you think?
