Thanks to a news update, we’ve now been reminded that a Silent Hill sequel exists and when we’ll have the opportunity to experience it. Although Silent Hill: Revelation 3D features some big names like Carrie-Anne Moss, Malcom McDowell and stars of HBO’s Game of Thrones, Kit Harington and Sean Bean, I’ve somewhat forgotten it was actually made. Nonetheless it has been acquired by Open Road Films and they’ve see a fall date for the horror videogame adaptation. [Variety]
Directed by Michael J. Bassett, who helmed the somewhat-buzzed Solomon Kane, the film will see a release on October 26th, a week after Paranormal Activity 4 and alongside Alex Cross, the comedy Fun Size and Gerard Butler’s Of Men and Mavericks. Also starring Adelaide Clemens, Deborah Kara Unger and Radha Mitchell, the film folllows “Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father (Bean) who have been on the run from mysterious and dangerous forces. She discovers she isn’t who she thinks she is, leading her deeper into a demonic world.”
In their infancy, Open Road Films have already been behind a number of high-profile films including The Grey and last week’s Lockout. Their experience with the horror film Silent House should prove well to transition to upgrade to a Hill. Personally, my most-anticipated film on their docket is Steven Soderbergh‘s Bitter Pill arriving next February. But for all horror fans out there, get ready for October.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
