Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Update: First official movie image and details released!

It appears that shooting has gone underway for the next Silent Hill movie, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, and now movie news site Collider has the big scoop and first official image up from the movie, featuring Adelaide Clemens as Heather Mason, the protagonist and star of the Konami survival horror videogame Silent Hill 3, which Revelations is based upon. Kit Harington is also slated to star, but no role has been announced for the Game of Thornes actor yet. Shooting has begun officially March 7 and is currently taking place in Toronto, with Michael J. Bassett directing and writing the film, as well as shooting the entire thing in 3D.

Personally, I was a big fan and supporter of the way the first Silent Hill movie turned out despite its flaws. The movie got the creepiness and vibe from the games right, but it didn't really pull off the full effect of creepiness thanks to the needless addition of the townsfolk that resulted in a lackluster climax and ending. Regardless of all that, Christoph Gans and Roger Avery did an ok job in establishing the proper tone in accordance with the atmosphere seen in the games, and I'm hoping this sequel under the direction of Bassett retains this and does more to accomplish what fans of the franchise and videogames in general are hoping for: a decent and successful videogame movie adaptation. I'm not holding my breath here, but looking at the picture above and comparing it to the Heather Mason I remember from the games, there's a bit of optimism sparking inside of me. We'll just have to wait and see when more details flesh out. For now, read up more info on the movie's plot and details at the source post in Collider.

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D will be released in a date TBA.
