Konami silent hill 2 A remake for PC and PlayStation 5 isn’t the reimagining of the classic 2001 game on the horizon: the company just announced that the story is also being adapted into a new major motion picture. Back to Silent Hill It will apparently be a direct sequel to the original 2006 adaptation, and will be directed by the same director, Christoph Gans.

The project appears to be still in the development stage. No teaser trailer, just a few storyboard photos and pieces of concept artwork. Gans spent most of the advertisement talking about the plot of the game itself. “We decided to get back to the best of these stories,” he said during Konami’s Silent Hill Transmission live broadcast. “The film tells the story of a young man who returns to Silent Hill, where he finds his great love – and what he will find is pure nightmare.”

Victor Hadid, who also worked on the 2006 film, is also back in production, and says that while the project plans to give the franchise a modern twist, preserving the spirit of the original game is a major focus. Gans seems to agree, calling the original Silent Hill games “great artistic achievements”.

Hearing Christoph Gans talk about the project is really interesting, as the director reflects on the unique challenge of translating the immersive narrative that only a video game can offer into a shorter experience of 90 to 100 minutes. However, we won’t see how well it manages for some time. Back to Silent Hill He doesn’t have a release date yet.
