Christophe Gans, director of the 2006 Silent Hill motion picture, was just lately interviewed by France’s Movie and Game (opens in new tab). Even though Gans was not concerned in 2012’s Silent Hill: Revelations, he earlier claimed to be returning for an additional Silent Hill film, and informed Motion picture and Video game that it will be part of a much larger Silent Hill drive by Konami.
Gans claimed, by way of translation by Resetera person Angie (opens in new tab), that “there are a number of online games in enhancement as we discuss, there are several groups on it, with a huge line of video games” and that “[Konami] will revive the franchise, I consider they have been actually amazed of the accomplishment of the remakes of Resident Evil that are evidently fantastic game titles.”
When the interviewer brings up the rumor that Bloober Group, the studio at the rear of Layers of Worry and The Medium, is performing on a remake of Silent Hill 2, (at the 17.14 mark of the job interview (opens in new tab)), Gans only nods. In reaction to a dilemma about who else is working on these online games, he replies, “there are various teams.”
We’ve previously observed leaked artwork from what is allegedly Bloober Team’s pitch for a Silent Hill 2 remake. The studio’s CEO failed to deny the rumors, saying, “We are not able to remark on anything we are carrying out because we enjoy our romantic relationship with our partners.” We have also viewed leaked art from a new Silent Hill activity that was speedily hit by a copyright strike from Konami, and a little something named Silent Hill: The Shorter Concept has appeared on a Korean score website.
Indie publisher Annapurna Interactive has reportedly been in talks with Konami, and, probably fueled by wishful thinking, some admirers are convinced users of Group Silent who labored on the primary game titles like composer/seem designer Akira Yamaoka and Masahiro Ito and art director and monster designer Masahiro Ito are also associated in a new Silent Hill venture.
On the subject matter of his very own return to Silent Hill, Gans reported, “In this next motion picture, I am going to try to reveal that Silent Hill is a put that owes as significantly to the creatures that live there as what we project on the town. So I am going to enter into something way additional psychological and way much more psychoanalytic in get to test to make people today fully grasp that Silent Hill isn’t only this weird labyrinth that improvements its form but also the projection of tortured and tormented souls and sometimes of exceptionally paradoxical thoughts that can be in between mad appreciate and violence.”
Gans formerly directed Brotherhood of the Wolf, a enjoyment martial arts/action/horror film set in the 18th century and showcasing some superb tricorn hats. If he has to immediate yet another videogame adaptation, I reckon he’d be a a great deal greater match for a Bloodborne movie myself.
