Up-and-Comers Topline 'Silent Hill' Sequel
Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington have signed to star in Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, the sequel to video game movie Silent Hill.
The movie, being directed by Michael J. Bassett (who helmed Solomon Kane, which never got U.S. distribution), begins shooting in Toronto Monday. Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody are producing.
According to the producers, Revelations builds on the father-daughter storyline from the 2006 movie. Monday’s announcement summarizes the new plot this way: “For years, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying 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 in Silent Hill forever.”
Sean Bean played the father in the first film and it’s unclear whether he will return.
International sales are being handled by Lionsgate.
Clemens, repped by UTA, RGM Artist Group and manager Ashley Josephson, appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. CAA-repped Harrington appears in HBO’s upcoming series Game of Thrones.
