Yesterday, we reported that Lionsgate International is finally going to start shopping around the sequel to Silent Hill. Today, it was revealed that the title will be Silent Hill: Revelations. It was also announced that Michael J. Bassett is set to direct the movie... in 3D. It doesn't surprise me that the movie will be shot in 3D. I expect that with every horror film these days. I just hope Bassett does a better job with this than Paul W.S. Anderson did with the last Resident Evil movie.
Bassett is a solid choice as a director for this Silent Hill sequel. He's developed films such as Solomon Kane and Deathwatch, both of which were really fun movies. As long as he keeps the same bloody, nightmarish insanity as first film, then the sequel should be good.
Revelations will focus on a protagonist named Heather Mason who, on the eve of her 18th birthday, is plagued by nightmares and now has to investigate the disappearance of her father.
I loved the first Silent Hill movie and I'm looking forward to the sequel! What are your thoughts on the title and director?
