It looks as though the follow-up to 2006′s Silent Hill film is still in the works, and a report has surfaced stating it’s to be a 3D affair and called Silent Hill: Revelation.

According to Fangoria, which was present during the American Film Market conference, the Lionsgate films is currently in pre-production with Konami and Davis Films on board.

Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody are the producers, while Michael. J. Bassett donning both the writer and director hat, and it is based on Silent Hill 3. His previous writing/directing credits include: The Unblinking Eye (pre-production), Solomon Kane, Wilderness, Deathwatch, and the television show Bugs.

Originally, the first film’s director Christophe Gans and screenwriter Roger Avary were attached, and while Fangoria doesn’t say why Gans is no longer directing, Avery was likely dropped due to serving time in jail for vehicular manslaughter.

Here is the movie’s plot as reported by Fangoria:

For years, Heather Mason 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.

Komani plans to release Silent Hill 8, the latest addition to the game franchise, sometime in 2011 for PS3 and Xbox 360.

    Heather is possibly my favourite video game character, amazing writing and acting. I just hope they do the character justice. Then again it’s a lionsgate film, they don’t really care much for scripts.

    Movie is going to bomb, Look at the director only has done 3 movies and all of them, I have seen were crap movies would call them D movies.

    And you know the whole Saw franchise should be evidence of enough of Lionsgate’s quality.

    I say possibly, despite the fact that almost all of my avatars on websites and forums are of heather.

    She is probably the best female character in a game.

    I agree I enjoyed Heather character in the Silent Hill 3. My attack is on Lionsgate, the director/writer of this new SIlent Hill movie. Looks like it will be just a repeat of the Saw franchise.

    I like Heather. She was one of the only SH characters who didnt act like a plank in the games.

    Cant say i care much for the plot to this movie though. The first movie got rid of the games cult setting blaming everything, instead on a witch. The cult was a pretty important part of who Heather was in the games.

    SH3 was an excellent game, but I don’t hold out much hope for the film. Despite quite a lot of people liking the first movie, I thought it was rubbish. :-)

    the only exciting thing about Heather was her facial animation.
