According to The Hollywood Reporter, Radha Mitchell will topline the video game adaptation Silent Hill, which TriStar Pictures will release in the United States, producer Samuel Hadida said Friday.
Principal photography is due to begin Monday in Toronto on the suspense horror feature, directed by Frenchman Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf), and will run through July 22.
The movie is budgeted at $45 million-$50 million, with additional casting to be finalized. Silent Hill is based on the hugely successful Konami game in which Rose (Mitchell) desperately searches for her lost daughter in the mysterious, terrifying town of Silent Hill, where they are trapped.
The screenplay was written by Roger Avary (Pulp Fiction). Hadida's Davis Films developed the film in association with Konami Corp.
