In a recent interview, horror film producer Don Carmody (Silent Hill, Resident Evil: Apocolypse) mentioned the state of the sequel to the 2006 Silent Hill movie.
Things aren't going well due to writer Roger Avary's legal problems following a one-year prison sentence in 2008. Avary had been arrested and charged for driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter. Carmody explained the state of the project as being "a little stalled."
The project is a mess, but the team plans to finish the film regardless.
The original plan was Roger writing and polishing the screenplay, and when he had finished his thing, we’d begin full-blown preproduction. I’m not sure what’s going on with that. We know we want to make SILENT HILL 2 and have a basic outline for it. We’ll have to see.
According to the Ventura County Sheriff's website, Avary had already been released. We'll have to wait and see whether he will be continuing his work on the project, or passing it on to another writer.
Carmody said earlier this year filming would begin in late Spring next year in Toronto. But it's possible the Silent Hill 2 film adaption may never see the light of day.
