Guillermo del Toro, Norman Reedus Confirm 'Silent Hills' Cancellation

Guillermo del Toro, Norman Reedus Confirm 'Silent Hills' Cancellation

Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus confirm that Konami‘s Silent Hills project for what would have been an excellent horror game has been cancelled. Sony released the P.T. (Playable Teaser) back in August 2014 for the highly anticipated horror game. Sony will be taking off P.T. from the available downloads on April 29, 2015, so last chance to download it if you have not already. Hideo Kojima will no longer be the director of the game and things simply fell apart after that. Norman Reedus’ contract for Silent Hills expired and Guillermo del Toro is a busy man who has easily moved on. Konami has stated that they will keep Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima in mind for any future developments but plainly stated, it will not be the same horror game.

Starring in The Whispers Season 1 are Tate Birchmore, Barry Sloane and Lily Rabe.

M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Visit (2015) takes us into that deep down unsuspected horror of scary grandma’s. The Visit releases September 11, 2015 which is a Blumhouse Productions film from Universal Pictures. Shymalan wrote and directed the film near his Pennsylvania home which he also self-financed the horror film. Other events during this filming included Shymalan signing a deal with Jason Blumhouse of Blumhouse Productions which has also made a big deal signing with Universal Pictures, a 10 year extension to their first-look deal together. The trailer is said to be released soon and I cannot wait to see it.

James Wan Producing The Entity (1983) Remake

James Wan has confirmed that he will be producing The Entity (1983) remake along with Roy Lee (The Poltergeist (2015)). Set to write the screenplay are Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes who brought us The Conjuring (2013), House of Wax (2005) and The Reaping (2007). Director Sidney J. Furie shocked many horror movie fans when he released The Entity back in 1983. The new horror film seems to have a very solid foundation and I personally cannot wait to see more on The Entity remake.
