Speaking to French publication Allocine, director Christopher Gans has revealed that he is working on a new Silent Hill movie. Gan was quoted as saying, “I have two horror film projects with [producer] Victor Hadida. I am working on the adaptation of the video game Project Zero. The film will take place in Japan. I especially don’t want to uproot the game from its Japanese haunted house steeting [sic]. And we’re also working on a new Silent Hill.”
At this point it might be too early to tell what the movie will be about and who will be cast in the movie, but this is not the first time that we saw a Silent Hill movie made. The first movie was released back in 2006, meaning that the time that passed in between will be at least 14 years, if not more, depending on when it will be released.
In the meantime, we have also heard rumors that Konami has been asking developers to pitch ideas for a new Silent Hill game. The rumors are claiming that two potential games have been selected, one of which will apparently be episodic-like in nature, while the other will be a soft reboot of the franchise.
