A second installment of Christophe Gans-directed movie "Silent Hill" is likely to start its production soon. In a recent interview with Shock Till You Drop, special makeup effects designer Paul Jones hinted that the shooting for "Silent Hill 2" will be kicked off in 2010. "Roger (Avary) has some awesome ideas and hopefully we're going to bring that to fruition sometime next year," he revealed.

"I was working on storyboards for that around the same time last year." Jones additionally claimed, "It's going to be pretty crazy. There's a lot of cool stuff in there." However, he remained mum when asked whether or not the script has been completed.

"Silent Hill 2" will serve as the follow-up to 2006 horror thriller movie "Silent Hill", which is a movie adaptation of a video game with the same title. The first film centers on a young mother desperate to find a cure for her only child's illness. Ignoring the protests of her husband, she travels to an abandoned town in search of answers and finds supernatural occurrences taking place there.

Roger Avary has confirmed he will make a return to his writing position for the second film, while Samuel Hadida has been set to produce it. Though Davis Films has not picked up any name as the helmer and the cast ensemble for the movie, the studio has planned to release the sequel in 2011.

Please!! For the love of God, if they're going to make this adaption from SH2 they should play the game first. SH2 is the best of the series. Really a great psychological thriller. This could be a great movie if they don't stray from the premise. And I think David Dachuvney should be cast for James!!!

When you talk about STORY then "Silent Hill Homecoming" would be the freshest choice!..But if you talk about CONCEPT then "Silent Hill 4" would be the best choice because that damn concept about being stuck in your room with chains is a pretty unique and kick-ass one..I played Silent Hill ZERO,1,2,3,4,5 and Shattered Memories so far..They're all terrific..

I agree, basing it on SH 3 would be the best choice, it's a more interesting storyline, it's something new, it'd be a better kick off for the new sequel than SH 2, which is basically a continuation of Silent Hill 1.

I thought they shud have done a sequel based on the third since technically that is the sequel not 2

Play Silent Hill 2 before you start the script! Otherwise you will ruin it!

I just hope that the directors and other developers play through Silent Hill 2, before they start making the movie.
