  Sean Bean on ‘Silent Hill’ Movie  
Posted 2005-07-13 by Tony Walsh
 recently interviewed actor Sean Bean, who stars in the upcoming movie adaptation of the Silent Hill video game property. Says Bean, "I think the game is quite psychologically demanding, because it's not about chopping people up...It's about using your brain, and I think this will be really good because Christophe Gans, the director of 'Brotherhood of the Wolf', has given it a really quirky, bizarre feel, very spooky and sort of like a European genre film." The movie, which wraps up shooting in Toronto this week, is due out in 2006.

I, for one, am disappointed the movie may lack in the "chopping people up" department. I'm all for sophisticated Eurostyle psychodramas, but when one of your main villains is a 7-foot-tall demon carrying a carving knife the size of an Audi, there'd better be some hack-and-slashery afoot.

That being said, it's not like there was a dearth of chopping and such in Brotherhood of the Wolf.

True. We can only hope there will kung-fu-wielding native Canadians in Silent Hill. Or, I'd settle for robot ninjas. Just as long as people get chopped up.
