Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Director Talks Silent Hill: Revelation 3D
It’s been not a very large amount of time since Silent Hill: Revelation 3D was announced as being in prod., and the film’s writer/director, Michael J Bassett, is already out and talkin’ it up. Well, he’s talkin’ it up to Empire, at least, who published an exclusive interview with the guy. Here are some quotes:
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.
I spent a long time revisiting the games and reading just about every little piece of material I could find on the mythology. 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. It’s more than you get from most horror movies these days, I know, but I figure why not aim high and try to bring a bit of quality back to a genre that’s rarely treated with respect?
So that’s what he told Empire. But that’s not all, because the dude also blogs. And he blogged that he really dug the production design aspects of the first film and that he’s going to try to bring back as much of its creative folks as he can for his film.
All right. While the first film may have had some problems, those certainly weren’t that they didn’t get the mood and look and feel of the world right. I continue to hold out hope that this could be the first (or second) “good” game movie.
