Every town has its own special evil.
Return to Silent Hill–the sequel to the 2006 horror pic–this week landed its leads and dropped a new, more detailed synopsis, according to a report on Deadline.
Jeremy Irvine (The Woman in Black: Angel of Death) and Hannah Emily Anderson (Jigsaw) have signed on for the new feature–based on Silent Hill 2, the most popular game in the Konami video game series.
The film–expected to start filming in Germany and Eastern Europe next month–is directed by Christophe Gans from a screenplay he wrote with Sandra Vo-Ahn and Will Schneider. Producers include Victor Hadida and Molly Hassell.
In this psychological horror story, James (Irvine)–a man broken after being separated from his one true love (Anderson)–returns to Silent Hill in search of her. But what he finds is “a once-recognizable town transformed by an unknown evil,” according to the synopsis.
As James descends into darkness, he encounters “terrifying figures both familiar and new–and begins to question his sanity as he struggles to make sense of reality and hold on long enough to save his lost love.”
Gans called the feature a “mythological love story about someone so deeply in love that he’s willing to go to hell to save her.”
