  ‘Silent Hill’ Movie Scriptwriter Interviewed

Edge Online interviews Roger Avary, scriptwriter of the upcoming Silent Hill movie apparently titled (or at least code-named) "Centralia." The in-depth inteview reveals Avary's keen understanding of video games, and details his collaboration with director Christophe Gans, who has an obsessive passion for the relatively new medium. It appears that both Avary and Gans have invested a lot of care into making the Silent Hill movie a masterpiece video game adaptation, and I have every confidence at this point that it will be a good film as well (two years ago, I had my doubts). If any video game property deserves a painstaking effort to get right, its the beautifully cinematic, atmospheric, and chilling Silent Hill.

I hope Silent Hill doesn't get botched up like Alone In The Dark. I never even saw that one and I could still feel the bad vibes comin' from far away... and I was a YUGE fan of the AITD games wayyy back. They were like the precedessor of all this survival horror shiznit! Sounds like Avary and Gans care tho, which is more than I can say for *cough cough* ^_^

Avary actually dissed Uwe Boll pretty well in the interview, so I doubt we'll see anything like Boll's cinematic swill :)

Good lord... I had to do a double-take on that sentence. Haha, I hope it's very ANTI that for sure! I'm also hoping PYRAMID HEAD makes an appearance, but hey that's just me. :)

I'd be happy with the zombie nurses or roach-human hybrids. Although I enjoyed shooting Pyramid Head into a pile of bubbling goo. Then I took his giant knife. What a drag that was*.

* Silent Hill in-joke for anyone who's used that particular weapon.
