So far principal actors have not been announced, but Brotherhood of the Wolf helmer Christophe Gans is aboard to direct the script penned by Roger Avary the man who also took part in the scripting of Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and Killing Zoe. Here is how the story reads according to the website:
A woman desperate to save her dying child finds herself trapped in an alternate reality as she searches for her daughter in a dangerous world of demons.
Rose cannot accept the knowledge that her daughter Sharon is dying of a fatal disease. Over the protests of her husband, she flees with her child, intending to take the girl to a faith healer. On the way, she ends up driving through a portal in reality, which takes her to the eerie and deserted town of Silent Hill.
Sharon disappears in Silent Hill, and Rose follows what she thinks is her daughterâ€™s silhouette all over town. Itâ€™s soon clear the town is not like any place sheâ€™s ever been. Itâ€™s inhabited by a variety of creatures and a living darkness that descends and literally transforms everything it touches. The human inhabitantsâ€”the ones who are leftâ€”are trapped and fighting a losing battle against the Darkness.
Joined by a cop named Cybil, who has been sent to bring her and Sharon back, Rose searches for her little girl while learning the history of Silent Hill and that Sharon is just a pawn in a larger game.
To save her daughter, Sharon makes a deal with a demon in the form of a little girl, and allows the forces of darkness to take the town and destroy those who tried to destroy the demon. In the end, she saves her daughter but at a high price.
