According to Resident Evil: Afterlife and Silent Hill producer Don Carmody, the confirmed Silent Hill movie sequel will be more accessible to the movie-going public.

Earlier this year Davis Film announced that Roger Avary was to return to the franchise to pen the script for the sequel, with full production set to begin after the completion of Resident Evil: Afterlife. However, shortly after this news Avary was sentenced to a year in prison, casting doubt over the future of the Silent Hill project.

Speaking with Shock Till You Drop, Carmody said: "Well, we have had a bit of a hiccup with Roger. We're just debating whether we can wait for him. He's writing the script for sure."

It also seems unlikely that Christophe Gans will return to direct the sequel.

"I don't think he wants to come back. He'll have some input for sure. In his mind, I think he wanted to do the first one and for this he's very happy to consult, but I think he wants to direct something new," explained Carmody.

That's not to say there aren't already ideas in place for the sequel.

"I think we need to make it a little more accessible to the movie-going public," said Carmody. "Silent Hill is not a blockbuster game like Resident Evil or the other games out there. It's a connoisseurs' game. It has its own, rabid fan base. They're not cheap, these things. You have to appeal not only to the gamers, you have to appeal to a wider audience."

He also revealed that the film will be set "years later" with the main character being "much older".

The first Silent Hill movie was pretty good really, certainly the best game to movie adaptation I’ve ever seen.

What? Have you not seen Mortal Kombat!?

If they can keep the look of the first, but make it more mainstream without losing the mature feel, then its a winner. Honestly I liked the last one.

Resident Evil films really suck though, and don't fit in at all with the games......Heck even RE5 in game form was a somewhat loss for me. They have kinda screwd that series. I think its time to start over.

Mikami I pray will start a new horror franchise with his new company. He basically made Bayonetta to fill the void of DMC, and it looks sucessful.... Here is hoping for a new type of evil.

Yeah I liked the first one, I thought it was a nice mixture of The Exorcist and The Wicker Man.
But I do agree it wasn't very mainstream and was more style rather than substance to be fair.
