Return to Silent Hill has revealed its two main protagonists

A few months ago we saw Silent Hill back in the limelight with multiple announcements such as the remake of Silent Hill 2, Silent Hill f , and Silent Hill Townfall, but also the return of the franchise to the big screen. Now, the filming of Return to Silent Hill will begin this April in Germany and other countries in the rest of Europe, a shoot in which the leading actor and actress, whom we now know, will already be present.

Two young stars

The male lead will be Jeremy Irvine, 32 years old, who already starred in War Horse, the Steven Spielberg film. Meanwhile, the leading female role will be carried out by Hannah Emily Anderson, who we saw in the terrifying Jigsaw, from 2017. Both will be under the command of Christophe Gans, the French director who already directed the first film in 2006, a more than worthy adaptation, in addition to others such as Brotherhood of the Wolf and Crying Freeman.

The film is based on Silent Hill 2 and tells how James (Irvine) receives a mysterious letter from his deceased wife, which calls him to Silent Hill. Upon arrival, James discovers how an ancient evil has transformed the city, having to face numerous dangers.

Full screen

“Return to Silent Hill is a mythological love story about someone so deeply in love, they’re willing to go to hell to save someone”, Gans says. ““I’m delighted to have the wonderful talents of both Jeremy Irvine and Hannah Emily Anderson take us on this journey into a psychological horror world that I hope will both satisfy and surprise fans of Silent Hill.”

“Christophe and I have been working closely with our partners at Konami, as they update the video game, to also create a version of Silent Hill for the theatrical audiences of today,” said Victor Hadida, producer. “You will still find the iconic monsters, but there will also be new designs. We are confident that this new film and Konami’s updated game together will propel the franchise forward for years to come."
