The film's producers, Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody, most recently produced Resident Evil: Afterlife, and have previously collaborated on Resident Evil: Apocalypse and the original Silent Hill film.
"Adelaide is breaking out of the indie world with commercial features such as X-Men and the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road. She and Kit are emerging young talent, and their chemistry and dynamics make them a brilliant addition to the Silent Hill team," said Carmody in the statement.
The press release also offers a brief synopsis of the film:
"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."
