Now that shooting on the movie version of Konami's survival horror classic Silent Hill has begun, we have all the cast and crew news as well as the first few images from the filming location.

The transfer from game to movie has proved a passionate and often disturbing affair which often leaves everyone involved disappointed. The most controversial aspect of any such transfer is, of course, the people involved. An example of how things can go wrong is the involvement of Uwe Boll in movies such as Alone in the Dark and now, unfortunately in the forthcoming movie adaptations of Far Cry and Bloodrayne. An example of how the mention of a decent name can bring elation is the recent stories suggesting that Ridley Scott may direct the Halo movie.

It seems that Konami may have gone that one step further however, as it has decided to use promising new names for its transition to the silver screen. The story has been penned by Roger Avary (Killing Zoe and co-writer of Pulp Fiction), and the movie will be directed by Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf). The director's name may not mean much to most but anyone who has witnessed Brotherhood of the Wolf will be happy to confirm that Mr. Gans knows how to create a tense and engaging atmosphere, a prerequisite for a good Silent Hill movie. the power of gamers has played a central role in the Silent Hill movie story as producers initially wanted to name it Centralia but had to change back to Silent Hill after intense gamer reaction.

In the movie, a woman (Radha Mitchell from Pitch Black) finds herself trapped in an alternate reality as she tries to save her dying daughter, Sharon, from the demon-filled world.

Rose will try anything to save her dying child and ends up in the eerie ghost-town of Silent Hill when her trip to see a faith-healer goes wrong. Laurie Holden is Cybill, the police officer helping Rose, while the role of Sharon is being filled by 10-year-old Jodelle Ferland. Deborah Kerr Unger is Dahlia, a witch-like character.
The movie also includes British Lord of the Rings star Sean Bean (Boromir) and Canadian Kim Coates.

Silent Hill's suriviving inhabitants are also trapped and fighting a losing battle against the forces of Darkness. To save her daughter, Sharon makes a deal with a demon in the form of a little girl...

The Silent Hill movie is being shot in Colborne Street, Brantford, Canada and will be released by Tri-Star Pictures in the U.S. in 2006.

yeah, Doom sounds like its gonna be screwy but prolly better than D3 gameplay turned out. :)i hope they can pull out the SH athmosphere in a movie as the game was totally awesome. though, i did like SH2 much better than SH1 but one definitely needs to know what went on in SH2 to really understand SH2. i was really amazed how the storyline in SH series unfolded. very cool and the game was damn scary too.

I have played all 3 silent hill games and the atmosphere in the horror was fantastic as for the movie I wouldn't get too negative about how the movie will turn out I say it will be a very interesting story and sounds true to the game's horror characters, as for Doom3 the movie I say forget it and not waste the money on somthing that's not going to be entertaining

First of all I never heard of them calling it 'Centralia' before the gamer outcry forced them to change it back. And I'm glad I didn't either or I would've suffered mental breakdown. What the hell kind of stupid name is that? The story sounds like one of the sequal games too. Why do people even go to Silent Hill anyways! Even their postcards say 'Visit Silent Hill and get sucked into a hellish nightmare!' I just wish they'd base the story on the original.

I've played everything up to Silent Hill 3. I started playing Silent Hill 4 and the story didn't feel the same.Silent Hill is a lot more scary than DOOM 3 in a disturbing way.Also there are Camera Hacks for SH2 and SH3 on the PC.If they f**k up the movie they will know.

well i must say after everything i have heard recently i have hope in this film not to turn out like resident evil, i whould like to tie paul anderson to a poll and have every gamer that was disapounted kick him in the balls while whereing ice skates. but anyways roger avary did a wonderful job with pulp fiction, one of the best movies ever made damnet, and Christophe Gans did an awsome job with brotherhod of the wolf. also konami is realy watching over the whole project and not letting some british wanker just s@%t somthing out his ass. so i think we can all have hope....hopefully

Well, if konami is involed, then its definate that the silent hill movie will be very good. Being a major Sh fan myself i am optimistic that the movie will pwn!... now who will do music? hopefully cradle of filth, marilyn manson,rammstein or slipknot(these guys all produced music for horror movies.)

to Lord Dweedo:Marilyn manson, rammstein??? C'mon thats s**t, if those bands make music for this movie all will be like resident evil i mean more focused to action than survival horror. Think againg and choose better i would name for music someone like Elioth Goldental that made music for Enterview to the vampire (the first one) and Final Fantasy the spirit within. Music more darker and ambientalist.

Well honestly I think an idea of a Silent Hill movie sounds ok but it seems that the plot is Silent Hill 1 except with a female lead I will watch the movie even though I think the plot should be Silent Hill 2 but whatever plus it needs to be R sure you can make a good scary movie that is pg13 but that is not silent hill Take On Me good song

I am a major silent Hill fan, I've played all 4 games and they have not let me down yet. Here is some scoop on the movie for u guys:The music director in silent hill is going to be directing his own music in the movie. He demanded to be able and direct the music in the movie! Also, (Pyrimid Head) is going to be in the movie, you know the guy that drags around the big machete and the head of a pyrimid. Also they are going to have the spazaming nurses... I just hope this movie don't let down SH fans! The director of Resident Evil wanted to direct it but was not given the part to.... I think that's good! Well I'll cross my fingers and hope this one turns out better then these others that have came out!

I have a feeling this may be a LOT better than other game to film adaptations, purely because SH is plot based rather than action.You may say that the final fantasy film was done from a plot heavy game and was still dreadful, but that's because they didn't use the plot of FF, but made some stupid stuff up.This MUST be good!

I am positive this movie will be awesome..look at the pictures and u know they put alot of time and effor it this film.. i read a interview they had with one of the producers and he explained how its revolved around the first SH hill but has elements of SH2 and SH3..The movie will be precisley 110 minutes and the music will be contributed by the person whos proposed the music for all the silent hills.. i cant wait for this movie.. it will go to number 1..im positive

I hope the Movie turns out nicely, I am a big fan of MOst Game-Movie MOvies...but have been let down everytime (dooms FPV first person view was a great hit for me) other then that not the BEST).....I am tired of CGI Final FAntasy with ppl defying gravity and cutting through buildings....make a real life adaption of final fantasy.....Resident evil was a turn for the better but not great....so maybe now the SH makers will take this all in and make a great movie learning from others mistakes.....I think though it should be a make of SH1 with the lead character being Harry and his daughter..... but they are the creators i hope the best from this
