Hollywood Returning to Silent Hill with Sequel

Ain't It Cool News chatted with actress Laurie Holden on the set of Frank Darabont's The Mist, based on the Stephen King short story. Holden portrayed Officer Cybil Bennett in Silent Hill, and confirmed a sequel is definitely in the works, but not necessarily with original visionary, director Christophe Gans, along for the ride.

The story is too old to be commented.

Make it good this time. The first one brought none of the feelings I got from playing the game.

I bet their letting Uwe Boll direct it this time...

I actually liked the Silent Hill movie. Sure it could have been better, but it wasn't anything terrible like the Resident Evil movies. I gave it a personal rating of an 8.

...only because Resident Evil showed more alluring Babe Skin.

Perhaps that's the mistake the Silent Hill folks realized with the first one: Having scantily-clad girls in provacative positions negates the requirement for a video game-based movie to have a valid and logical storyline.

On a serious note, I was actually quite hyped-up about watching it because so many others have told me good things about it. Ultimately, it was a letdown for me.

Which brings us to another cardinal rule pertaining to video-game based movies: Under-expecting deems the movie more tolerable.

Bah...I guess I'm not one to judge anyway: I actually got a kick out of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter.

I love the Silent Hill movie... it was EXACTLY like the games, IMHO. Down to the tiny details like camera jerks that replicated in-game moments. What more could you ask for?

Oh, but the story was conoluted, had little resolution, and left lots of room for a sequel. Which is totally unlike the games, right? ;)

i think it did a good job portraying silent hill and all. sure it may not be the best but it is easily one of the better video game to movie movies out there. i hope this sequel will be better than the first.
