Sean Bean Negotiating To Join Unknowns In 3D Silent Hill 2
We’ve been haring about a sequel to Silent Hill since 2006 and till now nothing has ever really come of it. Now not only is Silent Hill 2 a go but they’ve already started casting it. It’s being called Silent Hill: Revelation 3D and Radha Mitchell, who starred in the first film, doesn’t seem to be involved in this one.
Instead according to rumors dug up by Bloody Disgusting and an official press release which followed soon after to confirm their scoop, the sequel will be hiring a bunch of unknowns to step in and take over. Well, a bunch of unknowns and Sean Bean.
Sean Bean was in the first Silent Hill and he’s in negotiations to return for the 3D follow-up. Starring opposite him will be Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington, whom you have no reason to know. That’s probably about to change since Clemens is lining up a whole host of upcoming projects, after her appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine back in 2009. She’s also rumored to be part of Mad Max: Fury Road, if that movie ever becomes a reality. Kit Harington on the other hand, is in HBO’s hotly anticipated Game of Thrones miniseries adaptation of the popular books.
Silent Hill: Revelations 3D will be directed by Michael J. Bassett, the man behind the camera of Solomon Kane, a film everyone seemed excited about but somehow never got released. Here’s how the official press release explains the plot of Silent Hill 2:
For years, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she's not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hill forever.Here’s the weird thing about the first Silent Hill: Almost no one here in America actually showed up to see it. The movie only made a meager $46 million domestically, but in a world where foreign box office increasingly rules, how much Americans like or don’t like a movie matters increasingly less. Silent Hill made $50 million overseas and since it cost around $50 million to make, that’s enough to justify a sequel, especially with the ever-present lure of 3D money out there for the taking.
