Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is now in production
There has been many game related film announcement for the past week or so. Now the news hits us with another pleasing announcement about Silent Hill. Konami has announced that Davis Films have started the production on the sequel. The new movie will be called Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. The last movie Silent Hill was very scary and delivered a really enjoyable viewing experience. With high hope for this film, we believe that the movie production is in good hands.
“For over a decade, the Silent Hill franchise has been scaring players through psychological horror and the fear of the unknown,” said Shinji Hirano, President of Konami Digital
The filming began on March 7th. So probably the film should be here 2011 Q4 or 2012 Q1. Michael J. Bassett, Adelaide Clemens, and Kit Harington will be in charge of directing this movie.
Bottom Line: Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is in production by Davis Films.

New Tomb Raider film is in production
Graham King’s GK Films has just acquired the Tomb Raider franchise film rights. In case you didn’t know Graham King is an incredible producer. Rango, The Tourist, The Town, Edge of Darkness, and The Young Victoria are just a few examples of his work. The new movie will be produced by King and Tim Headington.With Angelina Jolie starting in the previous movies, it would be nice to see her back in action. No official details has been released regarding her appearance in the movie. Writers have not been hired for this movie, because GK Films are looking to do a Lara Croft origin story instead of continuing her adventures. The main goal for this movie is to “create daring new adventures for the young and dynamic Lara Croft.” With the last Tomb Raider movies hitting over $432 million in revenue, this new title is guaranteed to be very profitable.
Bottom Line: Lara Croft is back in action in 2013!

Devil May Cry Gets Film Debut
Screen Gems, the movie studio who brought you the Resident Evil movies, has bought the rights to Devil May Cry. Perhaps they’re hoping that another Capcom franchise will bring them as much money as RE (which has grossed more than half a billion dollars). As of yet, not much is known about the Devil May Cry film, except that Dante will be i it (obviously) and will be killing demons to avenge his mother’s death. We don’t know whether Dante will be based off the original games, or whether he’ll be a completely new person for the purpose of the film. If game movies have taught me anything, it’s to not get your hopes up too high. The script writer is Kyle Ward, who appear to be a complete newcomer to the film industry. He doesn’t have many achievements to his name, having only written for one film previously (Fiasco Heights, if you’re interested). He’s also said to be writing for the Kane & Lynch movie, too. Essentially what we’re hoping for here is ridiculously over-sized swords, guns and over-the-top fight scenes. If the movie doesn’t deliver these, then maybe Screen Gems should settle with RE’s success and leave video games alone. Bottom Line: A Devil May Cry movie is in the works. Make of that what you will.
