Michael J. Basset, director of the upcoming Silent Hill: Revelations, has revealed the first details about the long-awaited sequel to the 2006 Silent Hill movie.
"It’s early days, and I’m keeping details of the plot secret for now, but it’s going to be a sequel to the first film whilst trying to remain true to the plot of game 3, and will also work as a stand-alone movie for people who don’t know the series," said Basset in a recent interview.
Basset is taking his directing duties seriously - he's gone back into the classic Silent Hill game to familiarize himself with the mythos and lore, and taking bits and pieces to make it as interesting as possible.
"Of course, my choices may not please everyone, but the ambition is to give the audience a twisted, intense and terrifying experience, following a really interesting story, anchored by a terrific cast giving great performances," said the director.
Basset claims Silent Hill: Revelations will bring more class into the video game-based movie industry, which he admits is "rarely treated with respect." Of course, many directors have promised similar things and very few have ever succeeded.
