There are several games. Multiple teams. there’s actually a whole bunch of games out there. They will breathe new life into the franchise. I think they were very impressed with the “reboots” of Resident Evil 2 and 3, which are absolutely extraordinary games indeed. (…) They said to themselves “it’s time to go” and that’s when Victor Hadida , my producer and I decided to go back to Silent Hill.
It is difficult to say exactly which games Christophe Gans refers to. He’s definitely talking about remake of the second opusbut also very mysterious The Short Message spotted in South Korea.

I work with Team Silent, they are always there. I’m collaborating with Konami because in a way they are the co-producers of the film and they have a say in the work I do on the editing for a new Silent Hill.
