Many survival/horror fans say that Silent Hill 2 is still the best installment in the series to date, and those people will be happy to know that the movie is still on track.
This is according to IGN , and should come as good news to those who enjoyed the original "Silent Hill" big screen adaptation. Some thought the sequel wouldn't arrive, though, simply because screenwriter Roger Avary is currently serving time in jail for being involved in a 2008 car accident that killed someone. But the "Pulp Fiction" writer's incarceration may have only delayed proceedings, as the makeup designer for the original movie, Paul Jones, revealed this past weekend that storyboards for "Silent Hill 2" have already been started. Jones says the project is looking "pretty crazy" right now and ideally, they'll start shooting some time next year (right around the time Avary is released). We have no idea how this will turn out but you have to admit, if the screenplay follows the SH2 storyline, there should be plenty of intrigued followers. Hey, are we gonna see Pyramid Head? You wouldn't think that something that simply had a triangle for a head would be frightening, but that sucker scared the snot out of just about everyone. Let's just hope this sequel is good the whole way 'round.
We're not sure how many more games will get the Hollywood treatment, but it almost seems as if every major game release is destined to become a movie. Well, more chances to get it right, I guess.
