According to Resident Evil: Afterlife Producer Don Carmody, the sequel to Silent Hill may be in production this spring.
Carmody spoke to our sister site, FEARnet who visited the set of Afterlife. On Silent Hill 2, Carmody said, "I did Silent Hill and we are planning a Silent Hill 2 -- we were getting hate mail for that one."
When asked for more Silent Hill info, the producer said: "We are hoping to start it in late spring in Toronto."
Of course, the majority of the interview concerned Afterlife, the currently in-production movie version of the long-running horror series, and Carody spoke about the give and take of influence of the game series on the movie series, saying:
"We have always been cognizant of that -- we can't make the movies just for gamers. Of course, we always run the risk of incurring the wrath of the gamers -- who are very vocal. I did Silent Hill and we are planning a Silent Hill 2 -- we were getting hate mail for that one. I think with Resident Evil, after the first installment, fans realized the story was moving forward in a cinematic way. When you play the game, you are using your imagination -- you kind of sense what things will look like. The games have progressed, and are more cinematic now. In fact, the games are taking a bit from us as well. They are using our sets and characters, we are using some of their storylines... things like that. We're probably a little closer to the game now than we were with the first film."
Resident Evil: Afterlife comes out on September 10, 2010.
