Roger Avery recently gave an interview to Edge Magazine, discussing the movie Silent Hill.
IGN Filmforce was nice enough to pull some of Avery’s quotes from the interview: "[Director] Christophe [Gans] wanted to ensure that when we wanted to have dialogue, we wrote it big. But for the most part, much of the movie is a silent film - we wanted it to be full of silence. So there are scenes where Rose is just wandering through Silent Hill...In the script phase, we had long, long moments where seemingly nothing happens. It's all atmosphere – you're falling slowly into a world and experiencing it much like you would in the game."
Avery also acknowledged the responsibility a filmmaker has to make their video game adaptation as good as possible in order to keep the game-to-film transition going strong and give studios the confidence to explore the relatively new media: "Uwe Boll have done a lot of damage" he told the magazine," and I don't know that one good game adaptation will undo all of it."
Silent Hill is due for release on April 21st, 2006. Stay here for the latest news!
