Sounds like the new Silent Hill film won’t feature Radha Mitchell in the lead like its predecessor. The new film: Silent Hill Revelation will follow the story of Heather Mason and not Rose Da Silva (as played by Mitchell in the last Silent Hill film).

“SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D in currently in preproduction with Lionsgate, Konami and Davis Films and producers Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody. This entry in the video-game-based movie franchise will be written and directed by Michael J. Bassett, whose credits include DEATHWATCH and WILDERNESS; original HILL scripter Roger Avary was previously set to encore before his recent troubles with the law. Here’s the REVELATION synopsis: “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.

The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hill forever.” We’ll keep you posted on further updates.”
