Officially announced late last year, RETURN TO SILENT HILL (based on the game Silent Hill 2) is coming our way with Christophe Gans returning to the franchise (see what I did there?) after directing SILENT HILL in 2006.

Silent Hill.

Deadline reports that Jeremy Irvine will lead the cast of the upcoming movie, with filming set to kick off next month.

“The film will follow James (Irvine), a man broken after being separated from his one true love (Anderson). When a mysterious letter calls him back to Silent Hill in search of her, he finds a once-recognizable town transformed by an unknown evil. As James descends deeper into the darkness, he encounters terrifying figures both familiar and new and begins to question his own sanity as he struggles to make sense of reality and hold on long enough to save his lost love.”

“RETURN TO SILENT HILL is a mythological love story about someone so deeply in love, they’re willing to go to hell to save someone,” said director Gans. “I’m delighted to have the wonderful talents of both Jeremy Irvine and Hannah Emily Anderson take us on this journey into a psychological horror world that I hope will both satisfy and surprise fans of SILENT HILL.”

“Christophe and I have been working closely with our partners at Konami, as they update the video game, to also create a version of SILENT HILL for the theatrical audiences of today,” explained producer Victor Hadida. “You will still find the iconic monsters – but there will also be new designs. We are confident that this new film and Konami’s updated game together will propel the franchise forward for years to come.”
