Open Road Films has acquired all U.S. distribution rights to Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, the sequel to the 2006 film Silent Hill, released by TriStar Pictures. Silent Hill: Revelation 3D will be released wide October 26, 2012 in time for Halloween. The announcement was made today by Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road Films and producers Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody.
Directed by Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch), original cast members Sean Bean (HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” “The Lord of the Rings”), Deborah Kara Unger (The Game, 88 minutes, The Samaritan) and Radha Mitchell (Man on Fire, The Crazies) return in Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, starring along with rising stars Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins) and Kit Harington (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) as well as Carrie-Anne Moss (“The Matrix” trilogy) and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, The Artist).
In Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father (Bean) have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. On the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by horrific nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her forever.
Ortenberg stated, ’Silent Hill’ has proven to be a powerhouse franchise. The fans have greeted each incarnation, including the original ‘Silent Hill’ film, with great enthusiasm and we are confident that this latest project will be a strong addition to Open Roads 2012 slate.
Producer Samuel Hadida added, The film is a thrill ride that improves on the original in many ways. We take all audiences, new and old, deep into the world of psychological horror that is Silent Hill, and advance thestory for those familiar with the franchise. We are thrilled to have Tom and his terrific team at Open Road presenting our film to U.S. audiences.
