The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus, who was attached to star in a new entry in the Silent Hill franchise before it was abruptly cancelled eariler this year, is still holding onto the hope that the game will get made someday.
Speaking with IGN recently, Reedus discussed the cancelled project Silent Hills, a horror game collaboration between filmmaker Guilermo del Toro and legendary game creator Hideo Kojima that was cancelled back in April by Japanese publisher Konami. “I’m super bummed that that happened back in Japan,” Reedus said regarding the game’s cancellation, “but I have faith. I have faith that we, the three of us, can do something else.”
“There were so many ideas and cool future happenings that were thrown around. I just can’t see us not picking this up somewhere.”
Unfortunately, the chances of Silent Hills getting revived in the future are pretty slim. Kojima recently cut ties with the company (and it sounds like there was considerable bad blood between them) and given that Konami owns the rights to the franchise, it would be an uphill climb indeed to get the project rolling again. Still, Reedus is hopeful something will come together.
“Hopefully they’ll come to some sort of agreement and that happens, or we do something very similar that’s different. I don’t know. I have faith that we’re going to do something though because it just seems like it was one of those things that needs to happen. It’s like destiny, it needs to happen.”
