Gans, who is involved in Return to Silent Hill, a new film that will work as a reboot of the original film and will start filming in February 2023, has offered an interview in which he has mentioned that Konami works on the survival horror franchise.
The director of the next Silent Hill movie revealed that this one will be more psychological, focusing on the strange reality of the city. However, he too has spilled the beans, possibly unknowingly, confirming that there are several Silent Hill video games in development from Konami and several different teams.

In fact, Christophe Gans has confessed to having seen some things from a Silent Hill game being worked on by people who worked on the original four games in the franchisewhile the director has also revealed that Bloober Team, the studio that has made The Medium a success, is in charge of making the Silent Hill 2 Remake.
One more confirmation of the return of Silent Hill
“I know a little about the (upcoming Silent Hill game). I work with Silent Team, the original creators. Work in collaboration with Konami” comes to say with his words Christophe Gans. “I’m working with Silent Team, the original creators of Konami, there are several games in development as we speak, there are several teams on it, with a great lineup of games, will revive the franchiseI think they were really impressed by the success of the Resident Evil remakes, which are obviously exceptional games.“.
In fact, Christophe Gans has spoken so confidently about his work with El Greco from Silent Hill both in the world of video games and in theaters that has stressed not to be working with Hideo Kojimawho tried to rescue the saga with PT “I’m not working directly on the games, but I’m working with Konami, but not with kojimabut with the Silent Team that I met when I filmed the first Silent Hill movie“.
It is worth mentioning that Gans’s words are nothing more than an additional confirmation to all the signals we have been receiving over the months. Just a few days ago, a new Silent Hill listing appeared in Korea. Specifically, his name was Silent Hill: The Short Message, which led many players to think that the saga could return with a delivery similar to the PT demo, which caused so much terror in just minutes. The possibility that the new Silent Hill for PS5 has a demo has already been discussed before, as well as some alleged leaked images of Silent Hill 2 Remake.
Silent Hill returns to its origins… in theaters
While the first Silent Hill film directed by Christophe Gans focused on Rose searching for her adopted daughter within the confines of the strange and desolate town, “in this second movie I will try to explain that Silent Hill is a place that owes so much to the creatures that live there like what we project on the town“.
Return to Silent Hill, a film that will hit theaters in 2023, will enter “into something much more psychological and much more psychoanalytic to try to make people understand that Silent Hill is not just this weird shape-shifting labyrinth, but also the projection of tortured and tormented soulsand sometimes of extremely paradoxical feelings that can be between crazy love and violence“.
At the moment, it is only known that the film will be inspired by other successful films such as Midsommar or It Follows while looking for filming locations in Serbia. Of course, next year aims to be a bomb for Silent Hill.
