TORONTO (Hollywood Reporter) – Screenwriter Roger Avary and producer Samuel Hadida are climbing back up "Silent Hill," signing on for a sequel to their 2006 videogame adaptation.
The original, based on the Konami game, centered on a woman who travels to a desolate town to seek help for her ailing daughter only to find supernatural occurrences taking place there.
Hadida's France-based Davis Films aims to shoot the movie next year, after "Resident Evil 4," which it's now prepping.
TriStar released the original "Silent Hill," which earned $47 million domestically; the label has not confirmed involvement in the follow-up.
Avary, best known for his work on Quentin Tarantino scripts such as "Pulp Fiction," also is writing the videogame adaptation "Return to Castle Wolfenstein" for Davis Films.
